Moore Abbey Wood 2017

After a prolonged break over winter, it was great to get out this afternoon with the camera. As it is bluebell season and since it has been two years since my last visit to Moore Abbey Wood in Monasterevin, County Kildare, I hopped in the car for the 1-hour drive to this lovely, tranquil location. This is a great place for bluebells and it didn’t disappoint. If anything, the swathes of blue were even more splendid today than on my last visit in 2015.

There are three marked walks in the woods, ranging from 2km to 3.5km. The bluebell walk we took today is 2.5km. The weather was very kind and conducive to photography – a little overcast but dry with mild temperature and no wind.

I hope you enjoy these photos from today’s trip. You can compare them to the shots from my 2015 visit here.
