My recent trip to Mayo got me thinking about other parts of Ireland I’ve visited such as Kerry, a county which has it all, from sweeping sandy bays, to the jutting “gothic” rocky islands of the Skerrigs, mountains, a lake district, and bronze age forts, all linked along the famous Ring of Kerry.


Overlooking its own picturesque harbour is the handsome eighteenth century house of Westcove. With its eccentric interior and glorious views, it makes the perfect spot for a family holiday, and was a joy to photograph.  (ref.”Noughties Review – Part 2″  January 2010).




And the harbour itself was a rich source of photographic joy, if old boats, peeling paint, rust and lichen are your thing.
