Save Place
Termon, The Warren, Co. Roscommon, Ireland
When we arrived at the passage tombs at Carrowkeel, the skies above Boyle, Ireland were gray and there was a light misting rain. We had the remote hillside to ourselves, and spent a quiet afternoon exploring many of the 14 Neolithic cairns, which...
Save Place
Tully Beg, Co. Galway, Ireland
Connemara's jagged coastline shows the juxtaposition of vulnerability and strength at every turn. This home didn't fare well against the harsh elements, but its walls remain unyielding. The cool Atlantic winds are saturated with salt, and so are...

47-48 Temple Bar, Dublin, D02 N725, Ireland
On a crisp Saturday afternoon in Dublin's Temple Bar district, I surveyed the weekly food market and its wide array of produce, prepared treats, and people. I sipped hot apple cider, bit into a chocolate hazelnut crepe, and chatted with a farmer...
