Key Cottage in St. Mullins, County Carlow

Key Cottage, St Mullins

Key Cottage, St Mullins, beside the River Barrow in County Carlow, Ireland

While much of this former mill-worker’s home has been modernised, Key Cottage still has a corner that maintains some old world charm. This is the seat where I would read every morning before the others woke up. I added my canvas photo backpack and an old pair of  ‘veldtskoene’, to further the feeling of pseudo-nostalgia. The area is fascinating, and there is much walking and exploring to do in the vicinity, so the props are realistic. I’ll do a more extensive review of our Éire trip someday, but this photo does bring back warm memories!
