Eyes On Ireland:

This website contains the most beautiful photos of Ireland I have ever seen — from familiar tourist attractions to the remote and rugged beauty of lesser known Irish landscapes. By viewing the photo galleries, you can essentially take a virtual field trip to Ireland — and learn something about it along the way. Every breathtaking photograph by Scott MacGregor includes information about the photo, where it was taken, and the photographer’s impressions. When you get to the website simply click on the menu buttons titled, “Irish Landscapes,” “Olde Places,” “People,” “Things,” and “Names” to take your virtual field trip.
