As we travelled on the bus today from Galway toward Connemara, rows and rows of many layers stone walls and colourful hedgerows reminded me of the romantic Irish landscape in books and films. I realised how this land could get under the skin of so many artists, writers and poets alike.

Just in case there is anyone out there not familiar, the Dark Hedges are two rows of ancient knobbly grey-green beech trees on either side of a thin road. They slope towards each other, as if reaching out for comfort. At the tops the thin branches cross like spindly fingers locked together, forming an arch which blocks out the sunlight, creating something almost sinister and disturbingly beautiful.

Killarney, maybe our favorite destination in Ireland. Why? First, the beautiful town in set at the doorstep of a national park with great forests, mountains and lakes for you to explore. It also has some of the best nightlife in the country, boasting many pubs for you to hear some great music. It also is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry, which is a driving route along the coast with some of the most spectacular views.
