The Druid's Altar / Drombeg – Tea and a camera

From looking at the surrounding geography it can almost be guessed that the name of this place in Irish Gaelic would be An Drom Beag (The Small Ridge). As you may already know, stone circles were used in times of old as places of ritual, ceremony and also of burial. Excavations around Drombeg revealed a pit …

Blarney Castle in Summer – Tea and a camera

The first time that I visited Blarney Castle was in winter. The second time I visited was during a glorious heat wave (the weather insisted on short sleeves and the sky was a beautiful blue late into the evenings). Summer sun filtered through the bright new season leaves, rhododendrons bloomed in all shades and the Golden Rain …

Hiking at Knockomagh Hill – Tea and a camera

It’s summer – real summer; warm with blue skies. The perfect kind of day to get out of the city or try out a new hiking trail. Or maybe even one of those incredibly beautiful hikes you’ve done before. The lush, forested hike to the top of Knockomagh Hill near Baltimore in West Cork is …

Inchy – Tea and a camera

Well worth the drive west, Inchydoney is a lovely beach on the good and bad weather days. It’s actually part of an island that’s connected to the mainland by two causeways. If you’re looking for a good spot for lunch or a pint, visit the quaint nearby town of Clonakilty. We were lucky to stop at …

Forest & Lough – Tea and a camera

Not far from Baltimore is the beautiful Lough Hyne with the lush forest of Knockomagh Hill set behind it. The lough is a marine lake. That just means that it is connected to the sea but has a lower salt content because some of the water is rainwater (I didn’t know what a marine lake was until right …

Doneraile Park – Tea and a camera

If you’re looking for a great place for a walk, take a drive up to Doneraile Park, situated on the the River Awbeg. It’s open all year round, entrance is free and if you’re located in Cork, it just about a forty minute northerly drive (about ten kilometres outside of Mallow). There’s plenty of space …

The Cat Shepherd and his Flock – Tea and a camera

One of the cats, named Bodacious, is the lead shepherd; they call him The Cat Sherpherd. He guards over a flock of beautiful sheep in the countryside near Kilkenny. They aren’t just ordinary sheep, they’re a breed called Zwartbles originally from the Friesland area of the Netherlands. They were mainly used for diary, but they went through a …

Hore Abbey – Tea and a camera

If you didn’t notice, the photo above has a cow in the foreground that is unfortunately making a wee. They just have a knack for doing that kind of thing when there’s a camera pointing at them. It’s not my favourite photo but I thought I’d just leave it there for effect (whatever that …

The Rock of Cashel – Tea and a camera

There’s a bit of mythology surrounding the history of how the rock that the fortress is built on was formed. The story is that St. Patrick banished the Devil from a mountain about 30 kilometres to the north. As far as I understand, it seems like the Devil bit that mountain (for whatever reason), causing a gap in the mountain. That …

Courtmacsherry – Tea and a camera

The reason we ended up at Courtmacsherry was to get some exercise. The weather however could not have been more unpleasant (hence only a few photos). We started the hike with a view over the bay in the opposite direction of the beautiful ruins of Timoleague Abbey. As we walked through the forest (which is …

Killing Time in Dublin – Tea and a camera

If you’re not living in Dublin, one of the main reasons to go to the big city is for admin purposes. Reasons could include: fetching someone from the airport (we went to collect our acts who came over from South Africa), getting a cheap flight to a holiday destination (since Dublin is the biggest Irish airport), applying for a …

Cork Craft & Design – Tea and a camera

I found the open-plan Cork Craft & Design store on the ground floor of the Douglas Village Shopping Centre and was suddenly drawn in for a closer look at the works of local artisans and artists on display. Creations included glass items, jewellery, textiles, furniture, ceramics, woodwork, accessories, home decor items and of course art. …
