dublin, galway, tralee, killarney, cork ireland // schneiders in travel

Colorful doors, pubs, buskers, narrow roads, sheep, incredible views, whales, and the friendliest people.

First stop, Dublin! After spending half the day dealing with the car rental place, we were finally off to explore the city! Driving in the opposite side of the car on the opposite side of the road on very narrow roads was a little stressful at first! (We ended up swapping out the car for the smallest one possible!)

Dublin Castle! We ate some delicious food at a restaurant nearby called Queen of Tarts.

2-andy-carrie-dublin-colorful-doors-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

We loved the bright, colorful doors as we walked to some of the museums!

3-andy-carrie-dublin-natural-history-museum-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

The natural history museum had lots of bones.

12-andy-carrie-seans-bar-oldest-pub-athlone-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

Then we made our way across Ireland towards Galway! We made a stop halfway at the supposed oldest bar/pub in the world!

13-andy-carrie-galway-street-musicians-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

We arrived in Galway and immediately knew we’d love this place! So many great street musicians!

14-andy-carrie-joyce-country-sheepdogs-sheep-herding-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

We took a day trip to Connemara to Joyce Country Sheepdogs and watched some border collies herding sheep.

Joe, the sheepdog whisperer

16-andy-carrie-lough-na-fooey-beach-galway-connemara-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

I LOVED this little beach hidden between the mountains. It was too cold to get in the water, but it was so beautiful!

17-andy-carrie-lough-na-fooey-yellow-flowers-galway-connemara-ireland-andyandcarriephotoireland-andyandcarriephoto

These yellow flowers were everywhere around Ireland. Very pretty!

18-andy-carrie-sheep-connemara-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

We tried to get some photos with this sheep, but he ran away from us.

19-andy-carrie-sheep-connemara-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

Our trusty little Skoda that had great mileage!

20-andy-carrie-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

We were driving back from the sheep herding demo and had to stop to admire this view.

21-andy-carrie-ireland-connemara-green-fields-andyandcarriephoto
22-andy-carrie-ireland-connemara-green-fields-andyandcarriephoto

We made another pit stop at the Ross Errilly Friary. There were lots of black birds and cattle around.

24-andy-carrie-ireland-cows-andyandcarriephoto

We took a bus tour to the Cliffs of Moher. It was very beautiful! I wouldn’t recommend looking over the edge.

26-andy-carrie-ireland-cliffs-moher-andyandcarriephoto

After photographing Kim and Tim’s incredibly beautiful wedding, our week in Galway was over and we began traveling down the coast. We spent a day in Tralee and explored the Dingle Peninsula. We found out that Star Wars was being filmed while we were out there!

27-andy-carrie-ireland-coumeenole-beach-dingle-andyandcarriephoto

Coumeenoole Beach was probably my most favorite place from the entire trip.

30-andy-carrie-ireland-coumeenole-beach-dingle-andyandcarriephoto

Then we stopped at a small local brewery in Dingle and we made some new friends!

31-andy-carrie-ireland-creans-brewery-dingle-andyandcarriephoto

Then we hopped back into the car to check out some more beaches. This pretty dog was hanging out at Inch Beach.

32-andy-carrie-ireland-dingle-inch-beach-irish-dog-andyandcarriephoto

Beautiful sunset at Inch Beach

33-andy-carrie-ireland-inch-beach-sunset-dingle-andyandcarriephoto

The temperatures dropped quickly once the sun went down!

Another colorful door!

36-andy-carrie-tralee-ashe-hotel-yellow-door-ireland-andyandcarriephoto

Tralee was a really neat little town. Out of all the hotels we stayed at on our trip, the Ashe Hotel in Tralee was my favorite. It was the nicest, cleanest, prettiest hotel of them all! The front desk staff gave us some really great recommendations for the rest of our trip. And the breakfast was delicious!

37-andy-carrie-ireland-tralee-exploring-red-door-coffee-clock-andyandcarriephoto

More pretty views! We decided we needed a few photos of the two of us, so Andy set up the camera on a timer and ran in the wet slippery grass towards the edge of the cliff (maybe not the best idea in hindsight)!

38-andy-carrie-ireland-dingle-andyandcarriephoto

We didn’t have time to drive the entire Ring of Kerry loop, but we did stop in Killarney to check out the Muckross House and Gardens.

39-andy-carrie-ireland-killarney-muckross-house-garden-andyandcarriephoto

The garden had beautiful flowers!

Some scenic views on our drive through Killarney National Park

45-andy-carrie-ireland-killarney-ring-of-kerry-andyandcarriephoto

We took a local’s advice and ate some pancakes at The Strawberry Field. Delicious!

46-andy-carrie-ireland-killarney-ring-of-kerry-strawberry-field-restaurant-andyandcarriephoto

We continued our journey down the coast to a small town in Cork County called Baltimore. We hiked up a hill to the town’s scenic spot next to their lighthouse (The Beacon).

The next day, we walked to the harbour to hop on our whale watching tour boat.

53-andy-carrie-ireland-west-cork-county-baltimore-whale-watching-dolphin-andyandcarriephoto

We saw a few whales, but mostly some friendly dolphins!
