The scene in this Mason image looks more like one from an African or Asian retreat during the British Empire than in Ireland? A beautiful lodge, cottages nearby and smoke rising from the chimney to show that the servants are awake and getting the breakfast ready - magic!

Thanks to sharon.corbet for identifying this (annoyingly quickly :) ) as Glen Helen Gardens in the Isle of Man. (Or should it be *on* the Isle of Man....?)
