This is the old railway tunnel at mountain stage, just on the bends there is a little road that goes up by the waterfall!
It’s along here where the south Kerry greenway would go, the views would be amazing over the bay but there is a lot of controversy surrounding CPO of land, it would be great to have the greenway, but I’m not sure it should be at the expense of farmers
Our Airbnb host told us to drive the Copper Coast to Cork Co. and to thank him later. He said he’s driven it for years and still never tires of it. Now I know why. The finishing touch to our trip was eating in a town called Youghal (pronounced “y’all”) and a lady trying to kiss Shane.
Some craic to be had today at the 1st Pitchers Wedding Fayre by @ever.afterweddingsevents thanks for everyone who stopped by. I took a we bit of video, I'll try push something out but you know what I'm like..
I don't think I've ever seen anything as huge as this cruise ship. My megalophobia was definitely kicking in. I watched as she gently edged out of the dock and ventured into the harbour, down past Spike island and out to the open sea. What a wonderful sight to see.
Sunday rambles...breathing in the fresh air and admiring the naomhógs in the ocean and the gorgeous green fields dotted with white sheep. "Naomhóg" is the name given to the type of currach (wooden boat) which used by coastal communities in County Kerry. 💚
Throughout this trip to Ireland, I took a series of timelapses that I'm putting together to showcase our journey. I'm really starting to love timelapse photography - not just for the beautiful resulting footage, but because timelapse photography forces one to stay in one place for a period of time and really experience a space. Time stimulates the senses, and seemingly static places transform into a performance of light, shadow, and color. I'm really excited to share our timelapse journey in the coming months, so look out for it!
Sunset or sunrise? I mentioned a while ago I'd be trying to take/post more photos of Ireland so here's one sunset shot I've been sitting on for a while. The colours that evening were amazing and I love how you can still make out the Poolbeg Stacks across Dublin bay. This was definitely a day I wished I had a tripod with me, which I didn't. Let me know what you think?
It’s been a bit over a year since I returned from living in Ireland. Crazy how fast time has gone, been missing it lately and I decided I wanted to share 5 of my favorite photos/memories of the Emerald Isle over the next little bit. 🍀
I spent some days during a heatwave last year hitchhiking around the country. The first day began in Cork City and by the evening I had made it to Connemara National Park. It wasn’t getting dark until around 10pm so I decided to climb one of the mountains in the area for sunset. On the way up, I met @greg.philip and his model pupper and they agreed to pose for this shot.
By the time I made it back down from the hike it was complete darkness and I hadn’t figured out a spot to pitch my tent. I ended up settling for a spot in what I thought was a field off the road, turned out it was a bog and I woke up with what seemed like thousands of midge bites. Great memory, probably wouldn’t want to relive the experience exactly like that again. 😂 #earthoutdoors10k

Not much to say when you find yourself in front of nature’s masterpieces... Cliffs of Moher, Lislorkan North, Ireland

While driving across the border from County Cork into County Kerry we came across this really cool land bridge tunnel. I decided to send my drone up and look around a bit. About that time I decided it might be cool to try and fly through it. I started, flying through the first tunnel when I heard a tall van come screaming down the hill towards me. So I panicked and tried to pull the drone out of the space in between the two, and was able to successfully avoid getting hit by a few inches. Probably the closest call I’ve had with my drone, really glad it escaped that one. 😂 #earthoutdoors10k

I've been to Lahinch and Ennistymon so many times but have never been on this gorgeous walk before! Love finding new places, so happy 💚
