The Nuns' Abandoned Mansion

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.

I really did feel like I was in a fantasy novel. This place was dead still, and is pretty much ignored. Only saw some carved graffiti from a long time ago.

I have a pile of older ones printed and many are on display so once some more sell it will certainly be in the next run (and one for that wall)! Thank you for the compliments.

Thanks! More to come as I edit. I'm glad I went in Spring, as I was the only one around everywhere I went.

I hear you there. I have to bring these to me as well! I'm a bit obsessed with overseas locales lately. Glad I did it some justice.

Check out the Mansions of Ireland thread if you hadn't already. I will be posting a couple more locations separate from that soon as well! I was blown away too. There's so much out there still.

Thanks! A lot of these are "two-in-ones" as they started as castles and became a mansion with additions later.
