Inisheer, the Aran Islands. . . . . . . .

We are staying really busy on this trip, every day some place beautiful and interesting
draws us out early morning and we don't return to rest until late evening. . . . . . after
 visiting a new venue for an hour of traditional music, either in a pub or on the street! 
 We are on our fourth day in the town of Killarney where the music is great, the weather
really kind with plenty of sunshine.
We have traveled to the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry - two awesome day
trips where I took hundreds of photos as the scenery was stunning.

Here are some promised photos from the Aran Island of Inisheer - it was a lovely place 
and, although cloudy, the rain stayed away and we enjoyed the boat ride and a couple of hours onshore. 

Bob with Ronan and Molly - they took us around the island on an interesting tour.
We stopped at the local pub/cafe for a freshly baked fruit scone and some liquid refreshment.


  1. Well it doesn't get more gorgeous than that (and I mean the scone too.)

  2. Wow...that is beautiful!! I like your purse!

  3. Stunning photos, Mary! What a great trip.

  4. I used to dream of living in the Aran Islands ... a romantic notion but a visit would be good too :)
    You look great ! it all suits you ~

  5. It is so beautiful, love all the green and it looks so clean. Love the picture of you Mary. Hope Bob is able to find his relatives.

  6. Oh my goodness, Mary, your photos are beautiful. I love the old ruins and the bluest water I've ever seen. I can just imagine how fun it was to have Molly take you around the island for a little tour. And you're looking gorgeous, I might add. :) Continued fun travels to you and Bob. xo

  7. Stunning pictures and I love those rocky shore lines. So nice to see a happy, smiling picture of you, my friend!


  8. Dear Mary, Leave it to you , the person with the discerning eye, to bring us such beautiful's almost like being there with a very knowledgeable tour guide.

    I imagine this is very like the old Ireland.
    I would love to return one day and spend more time there.
