As I am already back from Dublin I am a bit late with this post, but I had just such a lovely time in Ireland I just wanted to share some pictures I took.
Because Ireland is so renowned for its beautiful landscapes, our group decided to rent a car during our second day in Dublin. We had to wait an hour before our car was ready, so we walked a bit alongside the river Liffey.
I love the way they combine old with new in Dublin.
When we got our car, and overcame the first difficulties of driving left side instead of the right, we visited Powerscourt House and Gardens, a few miles south of Dublin. For those who already watched the fourth season of Downton Abbey Powerscourt might sound familiar. (The Duchess of Yeovil tells Tom Branson that Lady Powerscourt is her niece, and apparently Tom HAS seen her, but he wouldn’t say he actually met her.)
Powerscourt House itself is turned into a interior design shopping centre, which didn’t really interest me, but we took an hour long walk through its beautiful gardens. Really gorgeous. I want gardens like that SO MUCH! Very Downton Abbey!
Our journey continued to Glendalough, which is a small town with a monastic settlement from the 6th century located in Wicklow National Park.
Glendalough lies in a glacial valley with two lakes, and is a great place for walking and enjoying the nature around you. It rained quite a lot in the weeks before our visit, so unfortunately this meant we couldn’t visit the church and grounds around it. The bridge to the grounds had become completely useless....
Luckily, the rest of Glendalough is beautiful as well. The whole area just had this amazing mysterious light, like walking right into a Lord of the Rings movie.
After Glendalough we returned to Dublin, and that was that for my second day in Ireland!

I have never been to the Powerscourt estate but have hiked the Wicklows and been to the Powerscourt Waterfall and like a madman climbed down it from the top. I do not know how I didn't fall. Glendalough is wonderful and the hike around the top is wonderful and they make it easy as there are steps up one of the hills. The view from up top is just amazing. Glad you enjoyed your visit and reading your page jostled some of my most pleasant memories of Ireland. Thank You.
