Derry - Londonderry, Northern Ireland 2016.

Sitting snug on the River Foyle, Derry-Londonderry is Ireland’s only surviving walled city. But don’t think for a second that those walls hem it in.
Northern Ireland’s second city a buzzing, modern spot with great pubs, fantastic restaurants and a lively cultural scene.





Peace Bridge with two structural arms heading in opposite directions, symbolizing the unification of both communities from the opposite sides of the Foyle river,
the Protestant Waterside and the Nationalist Bogside, these two opposed and independent arms are now united in a structural handshake across the river.
Opened in 2011 this 235 metre long, 4 metre wide curved footpath, track and cycleway stretches from the Guild Hall in the city centre of Derry City to Ebrington
Square and St Columb’s Park on the far side of the River Foyle.

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland 2016.

The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of up to one million visitors every year.

Standing 214m (702 feet) at their highest point they stretch for 8 kilometres (5 miles) along the Atlantic coast of County Clare in the west of Ireland.
From the Cliffs of Moher on a clear day one can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, as well as the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk mountains in
Connemara, Loop Head to the south and the Dingle Peninsula and Blasket Islands in Kerry. O’Brien’s Tower stands near the highest point and has
served as a viewing point for visitors for hundreds of years.
In the ancient Gaelic language, the word Mothar means “ruined fort” and a 1st century BC fort stood where Moher tower now stands. Therefore the Cliffs
of Moher means the cliffs of the ruined fort and although there is no trace remaining of this two thousand year old fort it has given name to the cliffs.

King John's Castle is a 13th-century castle located on King's Island in Limerick, Ireland, next to the River Shannon. Although the site dates back to 922 when the Vikings lived on the Island,

Blarney, Ireland 2016.

Blarney Castle is a medieval stronghold in Blarney, near Cork, Ireland, and the River Martin. Though earlier fortifications were built on the same spot, the current keep
was built by the MacCarthy of Muskerry dynasty, a cadet branch of the Kings of Desmond, and dates from 1446.[4] The Blarney Stone is among the machicolations of the castle.
The castle originally dates from before 1200, when a timber house was believed to have been built on the site, although no evidence remains of this. Around 1210 this was
replaced by a stone fortification. It was destroyed in 1446, but subsequently rebuilt by Cormac Laidir MacCarthy.

























Blarney House is a Scottish baronial-style mansion that was built on the grounds in 1874.













The Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, found at the top of tower. Kiss it and you'll never again be lost for words. It costs $1E for a kiss with awkward pose.





Surrounding the castle are extensive gardens. There are paths touring the grounds with signs pointing out the various attractions such as several natural rock formations with fanciful names such as
Druid's Circle, Witch's Cave and the Wishing Steps. The grounds include a poison garden with a number of poisonous plants, including wolfsbane, mandrake, ricin and opium, as well as cannabis.

Ireland, 2016.

How do I like Ireland? Well it's depending on what you're asking. If you're looking for well-known structures and bustling activities in large cities, you will be likely disapointed.
However, I'm looking for something different from other vacations, then Ireland has a lot offers; a beautiful and peaceful country-like settings to keep your mind calm from busy life.

Dublin Castle, Dublin, Ireland, was until 1922 the seat of the United Kingdom government's administration in Ireland, and is now a major Irish government complex. Most of it dates from the 18th century,
though a castle has stood on the site since the days of King John, the first Lord of Ireland. The Castle served as the seat of English, then later British government of Ireland under the Lordship of Ireland
(1171–1541), the Kingdom of Ireland (1541–1800), and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (1800–1922).







The Book of Kells, sometimes known as the Book of Columba, is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament
together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created in a Columban monastery in Ireland or may have had contributions from various Columban institutions
from both Britain and Ireland. It is believed to have been created c. 800.
The exhibition was at Trinity College library. The college was found in 1511.
