A beautiful scene in a valley with mountains in the background to start this shortened week. Ireland has changed so much since this photograph was taken, now we have an old new president in the Áras, we don't have to worry about being blasphemous any longer, and (fógra
) we have had 65 million views! A virtual sticky bun for all our wonderful contributors, thank you for all your help, work and dedication!
Never failing with that help and dedication, derangedlemur
was the first to identify this as a view of Adrigole
on Cork's Beara Peninsula. With other's pointing out the waterfall
in the rear-ground. The bridge in the foreground was also useful for corroberation....

Has that wild atlantic way look - Donegal, Galway or Kerry?
I would be more specific, Ireland..
I see a telegraph or electricity pole half-way between the white cottage and the left-hand side of the image. Having played with the colour levels a bit, I also think I see a black car at the base of the pole, facing end on to the camera. Perhaps a date towards the latter end of the range?
Hard to say with any exactitude, but it looks a bit like the wibbly mountain at Adrigole: firstname.lastname@example.org,-9.7217963,3a,75y,274.45h,9...
Taken from around here, I guess, if it is: email@example.com,-9.732316,3a,34.6y,295.79... Only further over, so the sea is in it.
Here's a better view - it has the waterfall as well: firstname.lastname@example.org,-9.7159165,3a,15y,279.47h,...
Here is a reverse Streetview of that bridge (Reen bridge) - two flat arches and one round.
Well done the Lemur! (ps your last Streetview not linking to anything for me...)

I think the massively long zoom links quite often have escape characters in them or something and they get truncated when you click on them out of flickr.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] I've taken to using the short links: in your streetview, in the little tab at top left (County Cork) there is a three dots button at the right of the tab. Click that, select Share or embed from the menu, and it'll pop up a window with a shortened link for sharing. That link seems less prone to link breakage, especialy from a photosphere.
Flickr sometimes takes a broader view - in 2015 via https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/22096031150/
