Fantastic view...The way the back of the card describes Ireland makes me even more want to go there...But Ireland is already a long time on my wishlist for a walking holiday!!
Typical view of "Glendalaugh" meaning "Glen of Two Lakes" a glacial valley renowned for its Early Medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century by St Kevin, located south of Dublin in county Wicklow!

On the back of the card:
The unique beauty of Ireland's landscape and its rich historic, literary and artistic associations have long made it a favourite resort for tourists. Encompassing a wealth of natural beauty within its modest dimensions, Ireland boasts a landscape which is as much diverse as it is gratifying. The scenic grandeur is set off by Ireland's position. Standing in the path of both the prevailing westerly winds of the Atlantic and the warming currents of the Gulf Stream, Ireland enjoys an equable climate which gives the country its unique fresh appearance.
