    Default Farm houses and country house - Ireland


    Hi guys. I'm new on the forum but I have been following your urbex adventures with much interest over the last few months. I am a delivery driver in North Norfolk and have spied a few good places that I have decided to explore over the next few weeks. Meanwhile I found some pics that I took on holiday in Ireland in '04 - please be kind to this newbie:)

    Country House


    Attached stables/ out buildings




    And several old farm houses (and there are lots!!)








    Oh and a castle, in the middle of knowhere!!

    Oooooooooooh forget about me wanting to move up north, seeing these, I now want to move to Ireland. Love that first pic of the mansion house, the castle bits, and all the various houses. :)

    Looks like a lovely place to explore. **goes off to ask Mendo if he can get a transfer to ireland**

    The sound of children laughing makes me happy.

    Unless I'm all alone in an abandoned hospital and my torch isn't working properly.

    What a great website! I'll definitely be saving this for a future trip to Ireland. So many places I want to visit! Thanks!
