Lovely views Jams! I like what you've done with the last one.
Makes me 'homesick'.Good shots, though, Jams. :)
Sean, Dragonstar. Thanks!
The top shot is full of dark mystery, the second is ebullient... but number three... I think the three of us have cornered the Irish landscape for ourselves.
Oh my stars! Your Ireland photos are stunning! Gosh! I'm impressed. :) Hope your weekend goes well, I'm on school holidays for a fortnight. ;)
Aileni, Leslie thanks! I'm glad you like them.
Beautiful views! One day I must visit Ireland :) Happy photo hunting, and have a great weekend Jams :)
Those are all wonderful shots. I like the way the last one almost looks like a drawing. By the way, I wouldn't be surprised if the hotel we stayed at was the crummy hotel from the song diamonds and rust. I didn't think about it until you mentioned it. In the info on the hotel they mention it being popular with artists and poets for over a century. They did a major renovation and spiffed it up a lot so it's definitely not crummy but funky in a nice way.
I love this week's theme of view. It gives me a chance to peek into these wonderful views that otherwise I would not have glanced had it not for photo hunters.
Great views of Ireland. Hopefully someday I'll get to visit there.
I have a view of the neighbors trash can right from my very own window. Maybe I should have entered the Photo Hunt this week.I love your Ireland pics Jams!
those are great views!
Great atmospheric shots Jams. I look forward to going back some day.
The views you took are all so great. Thanks for sharing!
These are beautiful scenic views.
I like your entries very nice and interesting. happy weekend.
I love that house and the wide open spaces!! Space is a luxury in tiny Singapore.Happy weekend!
The shot of Derrynane House is beautiful, you captured the whole premises together with the surroundings of it well :)Happy Weekend!
Beautiful, Jams. Artistic efforts on one and three but love the middle view just because it shows me more of Ireland. :)
I love that second photo, it looks like a nice place to look at the view of the Irish countryside :)
I've only seen Ireland in photos.. it is a beautiful place..Your views are wonderful!

WOW! really stunning views. thanks for sharing them. i doubt I'll ever witness them personally. sigh...have a good weekend.
I like the bw shot best. The stark quality of it all sort of speaks to me.
Those are all wonderful photos of stunning views. I love the one of Derrynane House!
I want to travel to Ireland some day to see where my Great Grandfather was from.
Oooooh. Moody. Gorgeous.
Great shots, Jams. I used to visit Ireland a lot as a wee one, my Gran and all her family were from Co. Cavan. Great memories.P.S. I fixed mine of Glasgow, go take a quick squizz...Siobhan

That first shot gets my vote, Jams!
It's so green! Such lovely photos! Now I want to jump on a plane and come see it all in person.Thanks and happy PH.
Oh, I love Ballaghbeama Gap. With those clouds looming I expect to see the cattle raiders appearing any moment :)

Love them all... Ireland has been on the list of countries I MUST visit one day!Happy weekend Jams!(PS Every time I wrote "Jams" I used to wonder how you got that nick. After all this time, today, it suddenly hit me! How's that for blonde, eh? LOL!)
As I've said before, Jams, it is almost impossible to take a bad shot in Ireland! :-) I do particularly like the bottom one, though - black and white makes it look almost dangerous!I finally woke up and posted, so I hope you'll stop by:http://flamingofotos.blogspot.comCheers!
Each view is beautiful! Derrynane house looks so classic! Happy weekend!http://mirageasusual.blogspot.com/
OK, so now you've singlehandly moved Ireland up about 10 notches on our travel list! Thanks for visiting my PhotoHunt and your kind comments.
The first and third not what I expected to see from Ireland. They look forboding but somehow they draw you in --- nice job. All are great views. :)
These are just lovely!Mine is here.
The one in the middel is very nice, the others seem a little scary to me !
Lovely photos as usual... I love seeing Ireland through your lenses. :)
It must be great to live in a place where you can go not so many miles and enjoy such fantastic views with so much character.Baker(Thanks for the visit - It's always good to see you drop by)
Derrynane House House is by far the most beautiful in my opinion. What lovely views!
Love the Derrynane House. It looks amazing!
Gorgeous shots, Jams. The first and third shots are bold and dramatic, perfectly framing the second shot, so lush and colorful in contrast. Nice work. ThanX for stopping by the hunt.
Beautiful, beautiful scenery.Would love to see inside Derrynane House.
Dark views. I like the view of Derrynane House best. Looks like an interesting place to live.

Thise views are great. I really like the House shot, as you got the surroundings as well. It really looks nested nicely in the hills.
Beautiful views. The second one is my favorite. I love all the different shades of green. I must get to Ireland one of these days. Thanks for stopping by to check out my photohunt post.
There really are emerald hills there, just as I imagined!
Fantastic views, all of them. Enjoy your weekend.
I so so so love the center photo..And you presented your photos in the perfect order!
Lovely views! I love the mood in the first and third ones, and the lush green in the second.
love the view of with the house..
They are all great photos but I especially love the depth in the last one :-)
Great shots! I love the second one. People who live there must be thankful for being blessed with such beautiful surroundings.
i likey da house...outstanding amongst da green and mountain :)
Some truly beautiful views of a part of the world I've never seen. Thanks! And thanks for visiting mine and have a great week!
Sorry to be so incredibly late getting round to commenting. Those are wonderful shots, very moody. I really need to get back to Ireland one of these days.
A place to die, Jams.
I' sure it's pretty grim in winter James although there will probably not be much snow though
