The Great Hunger of 1845 to 1852

















Virtually overnight potato blight turned Ireland into a country of mass starvation, emigration and abandoned homes and fields. To this day, the Irish landscape is pitted with  famine-era ruins and undulating potato fields.

Sea Monster



















The spider crab is the largest of its sort in Ireland. Its carapace grows up
to six inches (15 cms) while its leg span can reach twenty inches
or 50 cms. But that's nothing compared to the Japanese spider crab
that, claw to claw, measures a mighty twelve foot or 3.8 metres!

Polranny Studio


















Artist and recent guest Brigitte Rio chose the room above the porch as her
studio during her residency in Polranny. A great choice because
it has excellent views of the surrounding countryside. More of
her work and other activities here are included on her blog:
