The Deck of Cards

14 Aug

Last weekend I had 3 friends visiting from Holland and brought them to colorful Cobh for the day. On of my favorite things about Cobh is the ‘Deck of Cards’, a row of beautifully painting houses stacked up on a hill overlooking the town below. With the stunning St Colman’s Cathedral perched on a hill behind them, the houses make for some pretty amazing photos.

What do you think , fancy living here?

    I will have to put this on my list of things to see if I ever get there. This must be the area that the streets in Newfoundland are fashioned after. There is a very high ancestry from Ireland in Newfoundland and it is kind of a mini Ireland.

    Very “Irish” looking, and that’s no bad thing.

    The first photo is especially striking. Kudos to the neighborhood’s residents.

    Much fancy being there (at least in summer, right?). The row of colorful houses is beautiful.
