Castle near Ashford, Co Wicklow

I posted a picture of this Castle last week here and someone was hoping that I could get a better shot so wish fulfilled.
This is the view from the road, there is a high wall at the edge of the road and there is a high wall around the castle and as can be seen the castle is quite small.
A view of the south side of the Castle Looking over the wall from the road on south side A view inside of the cast wall. Panoramic view to include some of the forested hills in the background. The view the would have had if they built the castle on the top of the hill.

Hilðe said...

:)

Awh, hopefully it will get better. :)

Yes, I started 12th of August. Not sure if I like it or not. I'm allways running around attending compulsory workshops, delivering tasks and trying to make friends and to eat and sleep once in a while. :p

(My camera has been packed away for an entire month!! :o )

Leisha Camden said...

Hilðe said...

I'll do it when I've got the time! Promise! :P

Have you ever been in Norway, Paz?

Paz said...

I know its hard when you have to go to class make friends, go to all those fresher parties.
never been to Norway, but getting tempted more and more, but I will need to see a lot more pics so unpack that camera ;P.
Leisha thanks I hope you like the rest of the pics

You know I like all your pictures. :-) And I hope you will come here one day ... !! Fingers crossed for that too. Make sure you give us plenty of time to prepare though - I'm sure I'm not the only one who'll have lots of places I'll want to show you ... ! ;-)

I sometimes wonder if it will turn out like the film '84 Charing Cross Road' if you have not seen it worth watching, staring Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft.

lol!! I certainly hope not, that would be too sad!! I have seen the movie, and I've read the book too - you should really read the book if you haven't, it's much better than the movie (and that's considering the fact that the movie is really good :-). It's so touching ... and a very quick and easy read too. ;-)

Paz said...

book is always better, with the exception of the Godfather, IMO. While we are on the case of Hilðe(BTW how is this pronounced, out of curiosity) what about nanotales

What Leisha said :)

Paz said...

:O omfg, the laziness and the cheek, you haven't visited or posted yourself in a longtime and now you don't bother to leave a comment!
;P I do realise that your busy hope that all is well with studies

Leisha Camden said...

She did leave a comment; it's not her fault that I in my wisdom have already said all the right things. ;-)

As for nanotales I'm suffering from a sad lack of inspiration at the moment - I'll try to do better ...

Paz said...

I know she commented just teasing, will post something nice on facebook for her, as for nanotales it a was nice to pass an evening trying to comment in 6 words, Sudoku will have to fill that void
