{Our kind of Paradise} Se ci chiedeste, dove vorreste abitare in Irlanda?, risponderemmo: qui. In quella casa sulle scogliere di Howth, tra cespugli che d'estate sono rosa rosa, e una distesa d'acqua infinita, interrotta soltanto dall'isoletta di Ireland's Eye. E là fuori sarebbe talmente bello che non usciremmo mai di casa, staremmo sempre alla finestra a scrivere i nostri romanzi. Bello sognare, vero? Com'è la vostra casa dei sogni? ? – – – – – #TheIrishDiary #Howth #sea #ireland #eire #irlanda #discoverireland #irelanddaily #autumn #travelphotography #wanderireland #ireland_gram #travellingdestinations #feliceadesso #tasteintravel #neverstopexploring #exploremore #dublin #autunno #igersdublin #sunset #dublino #liveoutdoors #lifeofadventure #natgeo #visitdublin #sunset_ig #dublinmydarling #landscapehunter #livetravelchannel

Reflections at Poolbeg. Really looking forward to this weekend.. The "Barge" will be jammed on the canal. I picture today as the day that most try to leave work early to get themselves to the closest bar with a beer garden for a cold one.
