I need some time to prepare the promised replacement to Rätsel 2 of few days ago. So, meanwhile, let me supply to the Betrachter a variation on Rätsel 1, which photographically was not much appreciated, showing the same subject in daylight.
Among the many interesting surroundings of Dublin, the Killiney Hill was for me the discovery of this year. It lies between the very exclusive districts of Dalkey and of Killiney, both full of little castles (I will explain why in some future work of the series "It never rains") and of luxurious villas - among them also those of Enya and Bono. Vico Road, visible here, is one of the most panoramic: it is curiously pronounced "vaiko", although I am pretty sure that the name comes from Vico Equense, as one can understand thinking that it leads to a "Sorrento Point"...
So... rivalry with the Gulf of Napoli is open and unconcealed here, although there is to question whether the latter enjoys such a gorgeous weather [and, I guess, such a flow of money...] like the one that I witnessed here!!

I've never seen the sky of Ireland so serene.

Wonderful place and light ... and i agree with your title, that it never rains in Ireland - at least when i was there in 2009 ;-)!

HJBäu: I incline not to think, however, that they had continuously blue sky since 2009 to now...
At least, there was an interruption in 2010:
