Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

From Connemara, Ireland.

 

The view from the back of Ballynahinch Castle has a way of making you feel like everything is all right in the world.  Everything from the majestic Ballynahinch River to the smallest cluster of violas seems to fit perfectly.

Nature and culture in harmony, you see, Lizzy. Wildness and artifice, and all in the one perfect county. –Mr. Gardiner, Pride and Prejudice (1995)

Ok, so Mr. Gardiner was talking about Derbyshire, but I think the same idea applies here 🙂

From Ballynahinch Castle, Connemara.

One of the best parts of our tour of Ireland was staying in some beautiful hotels, including Ballynahinch Castle in Co. Galway.  In addition to having great views and food and the most comfortable bed of the trip, it also had some cool architectural details, like this awesome staircase.  We got to lug our suitcases up and down this, and I didn’t mind at all.
