Pictures from my trip to Ireland--LOTS of them

Hi everyone! I thought that other pic in this forum was a little lonely, and I love talking about my trip to Ireland last summer, so I wanted to post some pictures.

I went for 10 days with my family, including the plane. We landed in Shannon, then made our way north to Galway and across to Dublin, then down the east coast, then back to the west coast. The west was definitely my favorite part--it was more beautiful, I think. I also loved Galway--what a great city!

The first place we went was the Cliffs of Mohrer. That’s what the thumbnail pic is of.

These are from Connemara, a long, but worth it, drive in Galway.

There were sheep along the road…awww!!

I don’t remember where this cemetery was, but it was really nice.

These are from Galway City, my favorite place:

The rest of these are kind of miscellaneous:

Our vehicle, rented from Dan Dooley. Affectionately nicknamed the Red Behemoth, this baby seats 13.

A beach, but I don’t remember where.

The scenic view of the backyard at our first B&B. I’m not even kidding.

Sorry about the poor quality of a lot of these pics. I love talking about my trip, so if you have any questions, please ask!

Glad you guys are enjoying the pictures.

^Galway was definitely my favorite city, but we kind of had a bad experience in Dublin. We stayed at a hostel which was supposed to be nice but was full of teens who were loud (and drunk, I'm pretty sure). Not great for a family trip. And the sheets weren't even clean, so we got fed up with Dublin. But we did go to the zoo, which is really nice. And we visited the Guinness factory, which I thought was pretty boring, but my brothers liked it. Though I'm sure there are much nicer parts of Dublin, so I'll defintely go back some day. I'm hoping to go to the North soon.

*Sigh* the Cliffs of Moher are so gorgeous...
I want to live in Ireland someday. (Don't tell my parents that...they have other plans for my future, I think...)
