Tour of Ireland Photo Diary - Llangollen

Famous cities, scenic coastal routes and good food - and all just a short hop across the Irish Sea.This summer we opted for a slightly different holiday routine and did a twelve day road trip around Ireland. 
Twelve days, nine locations, seventeen counties, all four provinces and over 1,000 miles in total. 

Over the next week I'll be sharing some of the photos I took as we journeyed round the Emerald Isle. And judging my Facebook and Instagram feeds, travelling around Ireland is the thing to do this summer - has anyone not been there this summer?!

Before I say too much more though, those of you who know your geography might be wondering why on earth is this post titled 'Llangollen'? Don't worry, there hasn't been some confusing change in country borders with Ireland swallowing up Wales... we simply began our tour with an overnight stay in the pretty North Wales town before catching the ferry to Dublin.

Chirk Aqueduct is just over the England-Wales border

Steam Engine at Berwyn Railway Station - this was the view from our hotel room 

Llangollen Canal

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct - 126ft high over the River Dee and without a barrier on the canal side...

From Llangollen we travelled to Holyhead and took the ferry to Dublin - which will be the next post in my photo diary series!



  1. I've been to Llangollen before but only for a flying visit on the way to a holiday destination. These photos are beautiful and definitely make me want to go back and explore properly! xx
