SCENES from IRELAND
13. The journey from Dublin to Ballyhooly Co. Cork via Tipperary to south-west Ireland
We stayed in Howth, in north of County Dublin, before driving down to Cork to stay in Ballyhooly. There is a great cliff walk from Howth Harbour to the Bailey Lighthouse.
Approaching the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary.
The Rock of Cashel is a limestone outcrop on which is built a variety of medieval buildings.
The 13th century Cistercian Hore Abbey, which lies below the Rock of Cashel, but well away from the busy roads.
A 1st World War grave left neglected in the nettles beside Hore Abbey.
The amazing original medieval stone vaulting in Hore Abbey.
Clonbeg Church (Church of Ireland) in Tipperary. On its left are the ruins of the original medieval church and this Christian site was founded by St Sedna.
St Sedna's Well in the graveyard of Clonbeg Church where you leave a token for your future wishes!
The picturesque Glen of Aherlow in County Tipperary is a lovely place to drive through en route to (in our case) Ballyhooly on the River Blackwater, near Fermoy, County Cork. We stayed at the Old Train House (below), one of many excellent B&B places to stay in Ireland and a splendid use of an old goods shed.
The River Blackwater between Fermoy and Lismore, a very good fishing river.
