Ireland

 US-2533022
Stephanie lives in Atlanta, Georgia and last summer she spent 10 days with her family in Ireland. Among other things they visited this ancient structure of Dunluce Castle. 

Dunluce Castle is a medieval Irish castle on the Antrim Coast. It is located dramatically close to a headland that plunges straight into the sea and it's fascinating history dates back to the 14th century.


Beautiful card from Anna. ( Direct swap)
Anna writes that this is a typical landscape in rural Ireland - the hills, fences and castles. She wonders how those fences hold in place for so long because there is no cement between the stones.

The historic and picturesque coastal village of Carlingford is situated on the Cooley Peninsula, County Louth. King John's Castle is sited on high rock at the entrance of the harbour. The area offers many attractions for active holidaymakers.

Filling up in Ireland!
This postcard made Laura smile and me too:)
That's a very handy beer tap, says my husband!


Direct swap from Tomek
Tomek was busy, he was going fishing because Ireland is a paradise for anglers :)

The public house has long been the centre of Irish social life. Think of Ireland and your first thought probably is of Irish pub, indeed most people's first visit to Ireland is noted by a recommendation of a good local where they can go and experience a pint of the black stuff, take in the atmosphere friendliness and general craic that's unique to every Irish pub.


Direct swap from Vicky
Vicky is from China but lives now in Dublin and she loves it.
Is that not the most beautiful library you’ve ever seen? Definitely a Dublin highlight!

The Long Room, Trinity College, Dublin
The main chamber of the Old Library is the Long Room, and at nearly 65 metres in length, it is filled with 200,000 of the Library’s oldest books.  It's one of Ireland's biggest tourist attractions. There's also an old harp which is believed to be the oldest in Ireland. It dates from the 15th century.
