From Ireland With Love | Cong Photo Essay. 

Cong is a beautiful village on the border of Co. Mayo and Co. Galway in the west of Ireland. This little picturesque village and surrounding area is steeped in history dating back to 7000 years. But we’ll leave the history for another post. I’m extremely lucky to work in Cong. There is more to this village than The Quiet Man film and I hope this photo essay will do this unique and special place justice.

 

Have you been to Cong? Do you think it’s a place you’d like to visit?

    I love little houses that are covered in vines / leaves / flowers. It looks so enchanting. Great photos. You are very lucky to work in such a beautiful place.

      I am! 😊 And I can’t wait! I’m moving on a two year working holiday visa but who knows I might just apply for permanent residency 😊

      It’s amazing how we don’t visit places so close to us. I visited Bangor two years ago and getting the train from the ferry port to there, it was like I never left home. So green and loads of sheep in fields ☺
