Ireland redeemed

Ok, I’ll admit it. After a cranky start, our trip to Ireland is turning out to be pretty awesome. It kind of feels like this:

We’ve been walking all over Dublin and the surrounding suburbs.

We took a lazy and lovely sidetrip to the south to a small town called Bunclody, where a car, a narrow lane, and some wayward horses conspired to produce a heart pounding but kind of magical scene.

Yes, we’ve spent some time warming stools in pubs, but mostly we’ve been busy mastering public transit, and keeping dry.

We’ve also been taking lots of photos. You can see more on flickr, if you’re interested.
