I'm pretty much on the foot of a mountain and surrounded by lovely woods and forests. There's another great spot not too far called Ballyhoura Mountains. At the top you can see about 5 counties and so many shades of green. If it's dry and sunny - Ireland is just so beautiful.
Be grateful for all that rain--that's what makes it beautiful. Here in Wyoming it's dry and sunny around 300 days per year, and pretty much everything is brown by the middle of August. That's OK, though. The desert has its own beauty, and I love it.
I've never been to Ireland but I once flew over it on approach to Glasgow. Even from way up there I was struck by how GREEN everything was!
