Kings Channel, River Suir, Waterford, Ireland
Three years ago this spring we spent three lovely weeks visiting breathtaking Southern Ireland.
I long to return but in the meantime must satisfy myself with memories (and the captivating photography of two Irish bloggers I follow.)
We spent two nights at the idyllic and beautiful Waterford Castle which is situated on its own island in the middle of the River Suir.
Both days I walked along the bank of the river to get my early morning exercise and brought my camera along to capture the experience.
These images are of the King’s Channel running along the south bank of the island.
Thanks for visiting,

That sounds like a lovely place to go how great to stay in a castle! Was it haunted? Hehe
It was a beautiful spot. As far as I know it wasn’t haunted but these old places are filled with atmosphere and it’s always fun to discover their history. The dining room at Waterford is magnificent! … We stayed in three castles when we visited Ireland and I highly recommend the experience. 🙂
wow is sounds amazing, did you do that through a travel agent, ie was it an organized trip?
No, I organized it myself. It’s easy to google castle hotels in Ireland. We stayed at Ashford, Waterford and Dromoland. Often they have special packages and there’s lots to do. At Ashford you can ride at their equestrian centre and try your hand at falconry. You can also go for a boat ride on Loch Corrib or play their championship golf course. The lovely village of Cong right next door is a lovely spot for a wander.
Wow, oh my, my kids would love that..sounds truly amazing! We can only really travel locally due to my back, i am hoping i can go further afield, Ireland might be a possibility, my husband is an Irish wannabe LOL
Perfect! I hope you make it over one day. If you do, be sure to go to the Irish National Stud in Kildare. Lots of beautiful horses. 😉
I will! x
Do you live in Ireland ? It seems beautiful ! 🙂
No, I don’t live in Ireland. I spent three weeks there some time ago and just loved it. I’m glad my images convey its beauty to you. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
