The Giant’s Causeway, N.Ireland.



T O   T H E   S H O R E S   O F   T H E   E M E R A L D   I S L E .

On Sunday morning, we woke feeling a little foggy-headed after more than 12 straight hours of wedding celebrations the day before. Jason and I flown to Donegal to see our friends tying the knit on Friday morning, and it turns out that everything you’ve ever heard about Irish weddings being the best kind of party is true!

We danced until the early hours of the morning on the Saturday, with the music becoming steadily more ‘folky’ and Irish as the night went on.

Guinness flowed non-stop throughout the day and into the evening, and stilettos and high heels were cast aside as the dancing grew more serious.


With our time in Ireland brief, Jason and I decided to force ourselves out of bed early on the Sunday morning, and head via the Giant’s Causeway on our journey back to Belfast airport.

We’d heard that it get be pretty busy, but hoped that seeing as we were so far our of season, we might be lucky and avoid the crowds.

That turned out to be exactly the case, and we found the causeway pretty quiet on the whole. We made our way through the visitors’ centre and out onto the hillside, and began meandering our way down towards those famous stones.

The gusts of winds the hit us as we walked were like nothing I’ve ever experienced before, and the spray coming off the sea left my hair a giant bird’s nest by the end of our trip.

The scenery was completely stunning, and the little audio guide that Jason listened to whilst I snapped photos to my heart’s content wove the legends and myths of the causeway in with its history so beautifully.

I’m so glad we made the trip, not least because the drive back from the causeway was pretty picturesque in its own right.

A few photos from our time exploring the causeway below, if you’d like to see…

    This has been on our ‘to visit’ list for a while now. Gorgeous photos.

    It is beautiful there, isn’t it? I remember visiting a couple of springs ago and it was crazy busy, which does tend to spoil it a little, you’re so lucky you got to see it this way. My boyfriend’s dad lives out there so I’ll see if we can get over out of season next year.

    You should definitely bring your pup if you ever go again, Northern Ireland is made for dogs. :)

    Top tip for next time: walk over the top of the visitor’s centre and get in for free(!)

    Gorgeous photos and I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed your trip! My aunt recently bought a house about a mile up the road from the Giants Causeway so I’ve been spending a lot more time there lately. It’s beautiful but it’s literally a wind trap, the wind would pick you up off your feet even in the middle of summer! xx

    It looks beautiful there! I have wanted to go to Ireland for all my life so hopefully I can go there soon. Are you planning to go back one day to stay longer and explore some more?
    I absolutely love your raincoat! I have a weakness for the shape and the colour and it suits you really well :)

    I love Ireland but I’ve never actually been to Belfast before! Looks gorgeous!

  • Claire

    I love Giant’s Causeway but I haven’t been there in an age! It’s definitely worth a visit another visit! I must go when it’s a bit chilly so there’s not too many other people!

    Records of my Troubles

    My boyfriend visited the Giant’s Causeway – at least, I think he did – and I am so, so jealous. I have always wanted to go to Northern Ireland, and especially to the Giant’s Causeway.

    You captured it so beautifully as well. And I’m just wondering, do you still use the Canon 600D and your 50mm 1.8 lens as it says in your F.A.Q?

    • Rosie

      It really was gorgeous, well worth a visit! :) My FAQ page is actually out of date- working on a redesign at the moment, when everything will be updated! About two months ago I upgraded to shooting on a Canpn 6D with a Canon 50mm 1.4 lens. Both are fab, the body especially has made a huge difference to my photos!

      • Jes Cohen

        I will keep that in mind. And I can’t wait until the new design comes into place! :)

        Thanks for letting me know.

    Oh wow, this place is incredibly beautiful! I’d love to go to Northern Ireland, and this would definitely be on my to-visit list.
