It looks like it was a bright sunny day the day you took most of these pics.  I love the bright doors,  why do they paint them like that?

I believe that the colorful doors and houses "reflect the pride the Irish have in keeping their surroundings in a state befitting the extraordinary beauty of their country, and their bright, fun-loving nature".(though it has been said that " their houses are painted bright colors in order to help their owners find them after a hard night's drinking in a local pub!"--from The Magic & Mystery of Ireland
