I have been hard at work editing the pile of photos from my recent trip to Ireland. I aimed to visit 30 abandoned mansions, and had many misses and a few hits. I quickly learned the main threat is bulls, the weather and the always present estate hands! This was the first mansion on the trip, and was once a castle and then a nuns' monastery. I was able to wander it for hours and it was one of my favorite locations there. It was very much a secret world inside all the ivy. More to come soon.
