Ireland Photos

I recently visited Dublin, Ireland with my girlfriend Kristen. We had a blast and managed to see a lot in 7 days. We walked all over the city and saw Cathedrals, museums, a Zoo, a prison, saw a few Castles, went in a few pubs, did some shopping and even checked out a few things outside the city as well. We went to the West Coast of Ireland one day and saw the Cliffs of Moher (Insanity! – Princess Bride reference). We spent some time in the seaside towns of Malahide, and Howth and walked around the Powerscourt Gardens estate, and Glendalough. All in all, it was a great trip and I would love to go back to Ireland, but this time see more of the countryside. Throughout the trip, I took lots of photographs and wrote about them on my photography website SkaPunkPhotos.com. Here’s a list of the blog postings, along with a few photos:

Dublin, Ireland Vacation – Day 1


I finally went to one of the places I always wanted to visit, Ireland! My girlfriend Kristen and I just got back from Dublin on Monday and I have over 2000 photos to go through. I’ll have seperate blog posts on each day I visited Ireland. These photos are from the first day, where we landed early in the morning. I didn’t get much sleep on the plane, maybe 15 minutes of sleep? But for some reason, I was functioning for most of the day.  After we got our hotel room down in the Grand Canal Docks, we ended up walking around the city most of the day.

Dublin, Ireland Vacation – Day 2


Day 2 of Dublin was a great day. Kristen and I got a lot accomplished after getting a night’s rest. We purchased a Dublin Pass for a day, which pays for a bunch of attractions and stuff in Dublin. It was well worth getting it if you plan on using it. We ended up going to the Dublin Zoo, Kilmainham Goal, Guinness Storehouse and St Patrick’s Cathedral.

Dublin, Ireland Vacation – Days 4 & 5


Day 4 of my Dublin, Ireland vacation was a nice day filled with museums, galleries, churches and yes, even more walking! Kristen and I first went to the National Museum of Ireland, which was located by Merrion Square. It offered up a nice collection of ancient Celtic jewelry, clothing, shoes, and weapons. They had a great Viking exhibit there as well. I liked that part of the most because I just love seeing old weapons and swords, plus seeing cracked human skulls was pretty damn cool!

Dublin, Ireland Vacation – Day 6


Day 6 of our Dublin, Ireland vacation was spent in the seaside towns of Malahide and Howth. If you plan on spending any time in Dublin, I highly recommend spending a day or two outside the city and explore the seaside villages & towns. I particularly loved Howth and wish I spent the day there instead of just a half day.

Dublin, Ireland Vacation – Day 7


It’s the final day of our vacation, and probably one of my favorite days on the trip. We booked a day tour through Bus Éireann and went to Powerscourt Gardens, Glendalough and Wicklow Mountains. If you get the chance to see any of this stuff, be sure to pick a nice day for it. We lucked out this day and got some beautiful, sunny weather before all the rain came later on.
