For this weeks challenge, Amy has asked us to show windows with a view.
As we traveled around Ireland last spring some of our hotel rooms had great views out the windows.
I loved the view of Eyre Square from the windows of our room in Galway, Ireland. It took some creative maneuvering of the camera to avoid the black window frame (alas, you can still see part of it in the upper right corner).
Our first bed and breakfast experience was the Alderhaven Country Home in Killarney, Ireland. The home was in a beautiful setting and our hosts Pat and Norrie O’Neill were wonderful. When we decided to let someone else do the driving and take a tour of the Ring of Kerry, Norrie arranged a tour with a a tour company and guide she knew.
At the Westwood Country House in Tower, near Blarney, our room overlooked the back yard. Our hosts Fergus and Eucharia welcomed us into their beautiful home and prepared fresh eggs from their back yard hens and smoked salmon for breakfast. Fergus even gave us scones to take along for a snack on our all day bus tour. Seeing the evening sky through our window was a real treat at the end of a long day.
Our room several floors up in the Hotel Europa in Belfast, Northern Ireland had great views of the city. The photo at the top of this page was taken looking down at the street.
Many thanks to Amy for this weeks Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Window with a View
