South West Ireland
Recently, I had the opportunity to visit South West Ireland. Here some images taken from the visit.
Based in the beautiful South West corner, close to Bantry Bay, myself and family enjoyed a fabulous week exploring the Wild Atlantic Way and the surrounding locations.
It is a truly magnificent coastline, mixed with rugged cliffs, remote coves and spectacular mountain backdrop. It's pretty much perfect for me and my exploration / outdoors fix.
We traveled from Amsterdam, hired a car and just enjoyed everything that was laid out in front of us. The relatively quiet roads and stunning scenery led us to an unforgettable adventure around each and every corner.
For me Ireland is perfect. I love landscapes like this, as it is not only reminds of my childhood home in England, but it is continuously changing, with always some interesting and breathtaking to see.
All images shown here are taken on my IPhone and then posted on to my Instagram feed @garethmateblog
After the trip, my camera roll was pretty full, so expect many more images in the years to come.
I would also like to extend a big thanks to everyone at Haglöfs for providing me with suitable kit and keeping me warm and dry.
