Capitol of the Republic of Ireland
and Skerries

My last night in Ireland was spent in Skerries a small town on the east coast north of Dublin. My B&B offered a marvelous view of the Irish Sea. Dublin? Crowded and busy. I had a plane to catch at 3:00 PM, so I didn't have a lot of time in Dublin. Enough time to bus into the city, take a tour and head back to the airport. Next time, I'll spend a couple of days there. About 1 in 4 people in the whole of Ireland lives in Dublin. That coupled with thousands of tourists accounts for the crowds in the city.


These two photos were taken in the same sky over Skerries. The sun rising in the east and that wonderful full moon ready to set in the west. I don't often see this, and the other times I have, I didn't have a camera in my hand. I only wished I had a fisheye lens.

The Ardgillan Demesne

A part of the grounds
Although referred to as a castle, the residence at Ardgillan is a large country-style house with castellated embellishmnets. Originally named "Prospect" the central section was built in 1738 by Robert Taylor, with the west and east wings added in the late 1700's.
The grounds contains two large gardens, the Rose and the Walled. The Rose Garden is known for the wide variety of roses. While the Walled Garden has five compartments supplying herbs, vegetables and fruits, cut flowers, and a section for native Irish plants.

Sunclouds, I'm not sure where I took this photo, but I really like it.
Somewhere near Galway, I believe.
