The prize for September photo competition- A Kelly Kettle

We can't believe it's September as summer fades into autumn. We are so ready for the beautiful colours, fresh air and earthy smell it brings along with it. We also can't wait to see all your amazing pictures!

September is a fantastic time to visit Ireland. You'll find that crowds drop off as schools return. Settled, warm weather usually lingers on from summer. Temperatures range from 13 degrees C / 55 degrees F to lows of 9 degrees C / 48 degree F. All of the tourist attractions are still open. So exploring all those ancient castles and historic houses is still an option.

The Prize: What is a Kelly Kettle?

The prize this month is special: it's a Kelly Kettle!

Here at Vagabond we absolutely love using the Kelly Kettle on tour. There is nothing quite like brewing a wild Irish coffee on a golden beach in the west of Ireland.

The Kelly Kettle company is located in the west of Ireland, where it has been an essential piece of camping equipment for Irish fishermen and angling guides for generations. Brothers Patrick & Seamus Kelly are very proud to be the fourth generation of the Kelly family to be associated with their famous kettle and camping gear. Like the rest of their family, the brothers are extremely keen outdoor enthusiasts and are accomplished anglers (true Vagabonds).
