Lough Ree Sunset

By Andrew_Hurley
Similar to yesterdays upload, this is Ballykeeran again, about 2-3 miles north of Athlone. Athlone is right in the heart of Ireland (The Irish equivalent of Birmingham in England), except Athlone is far less built up and more attractive. (I've just offended the whole of the Midlands now!).

This is Lough Ree (East) Caravan Park, very basic but the location is ideal. There is a large pub nearby once it gets dark to spend a few hours.

All comments and votes very welcome indeed.

Thanks John, well Ireland is beautiful, and unfortunately very few English people make the journey over. Part of the problem, without getting too political, is the problems Belfast has experienced since the 60's and it's now well known in England that Southern Ireland is expensive. In Dublin a pint is around 5.00, in England it's less than 3.00 in most places. Eating out is also expensive. It's far cheaper to go abroad, around the Med for a week, than spend just a weekend in Ireland. It's a real shame as people are missing out on some stunning scenery, historic castles and rugged coastline especially on the West and South Coast. And as for the hospitality of the Irish and the Craic, second to none of course!
