Oh, County Cork looks so pretty Shane. I feel we have to go there when we go to Ireland. I never imagined there would be colour like that, as my image of Irish cottages has been more to the stone variety. Lovely photos. Love P. xx

I can see why you would be drawn to this village. What beautiful, vivid colors!

Hello Shane, I love the colorful houses. What a pretty place to visit. Ireland is on my list of places to visit. I enjoyed your mosaics and images! Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Oh Shane...thank you for sharing your lovely photos.
Ireland has a very special place in my he♥rt (Mahoney is my maiden name).
We are looking forward to a return visit some day.
I bet you had a most wonderful time there.
Everyone is so kind and friendly.

Stephanie said...

Dearest Shane, what a charming and oh-so-beautiful place! I love seeing such happy colors :)

I hope you have a delightful week, sweet friend. Love to you!

Michelle said...

A couple of your photos, especially the bottom right in the first collage, look like the set of Doc Marten!

Mary said...

So pretty - guess the often damp weather is more palatable with gaily painted cottages to look at! We hope to get there next year - County Kerry (Castleisland) at top of the list where Bob's paternal grandparents hailed from - think that's adjoining Co. Cork.

Happy week dear Shane.

Ireland is just beautiful...I adored it all....painted houses, flowers, hills, green fields and stone walls. A favorite place.

Susan Heather said...

It looks delightful. I have never been to Ireland. Hopefully I will have a trip back to the U.K. at some stage although the older I get the less likely it seems.

Thanks for sharing.

Jeanie said...

I've wanted to visit County Cork and its beautiful buildings for a very long time. I'm so glad you could "take me there" with your wonderful photos!

Those houses looked so enchanting with all those different colours. I wonder how they chose which colour to paint their houses.

It is so pretty! I can see why you fell in love! xx

Marilyn Miller said...

Beautiful! I love villages with multi colors on their houses. Like an artists palette.

County Cork looks like a charming place to visit. Love those colorful houses amongst the rolling green hills.

Holly Myers said...

Beautiful! Some day a visit needs to be planned for County Cork!

Linda H said...

Oh this makes me yearn to return to Ireland. I have been twice, both back in the 80's... much too long ago. Can you tell me the name of the colorful village in the first collage, top left? It looks like a charming spot...

Valerie said...

Thank you for the reminders of a beautiful country I was blessed to spend time in during my early 20's (a l-o-n-g time ago!!). I hope you were able to experience the joyful sounds of a musical instrument being played in a remotely located pub, accompanied by hearty singing - just too wonderful to forget.

And nice that we now are friends

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

We didn't get to County Cork last year but I love how refreshing the colours of the houses are - I'd fit right in here and mine would be lavender. :-)
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Shane.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Those houses simply don't look real!

Lorrie said...

I just love those colorfully painted houses - they would brighten up the landscape in all the rain that I hear falls in Ireland.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

How charming, Shane! I love the colorful cottages and beautiful scenery. Both my husband and my Grandfather's came from County Cork. I hope to visit someday! Thanks for sharing these pretty scenes and hope you had a wonderful time. xo Karen

I am so glad that you had such a wonderful time. I am guessing that half of your heart is in France all the time.
