May 7, 2017 - Kilmore Quay to Dublin Airport

This a.m. we had a lovely chat with the lady who runs Harbor Lights. It meant that we did not leave until after 10a but then we did not have a long way to go. We drove across the peninsula to Wexford. On the way we saw several thatched houses--one was quite big....a Cape Cod style with dormer windows. We also spied a cottage with a new blonde thatched roof. We saw some old tower ruins. Wexford seemed a typical waterfront Irish town with Main Street winding down to the harbour. We saw no sign of a castle although it does have one. From here...

Sep 15, 2015 - Ireland - Wicklow

Today we are doing a Wicklow mountains tour. So we get up and source our drop off area - near Molly Malone statute - all good have about an hour before we depart so go and have some breaky close by. The only thing open was Starbucks (not a huge fan but it will do). They have toast for 2 euro and bring on a coffee and all good to go - however when I order the toast, she gets the bread out of the packet and asks if I would like it toasted!?! WTF - if I wanted bread I would have asked for bread - but I asked for toast - well at the point Dave...

Jun 9, 2014 - Wicklow Mountains Tour

Monday, we had another tour, although this one didn’t start quite so early. We woke up around 7 and, after getting ready, started walking back into Dublin. We got breakfast along the way and then waited for our tour back at the Dublin Tourism Information Center. Today, we would be heading south into the Wicklow Mountains area with Hilltop Treks. Our tour guide was Emily and once everyone was on board the bus, we headed to the outskirts of Dublin. Sandy and I were doing a guided walk, along with two girls from Norway, while the rest of the...

Apr 15, 2011 - North Wales & Ireland

We headed to the west coast of Wales as Jean, Brian and Andrew were having a weeks holiday at a resort in Pennal and we planned to meet up. When we arrived at the resort Brian had gone missing. Paul and Andrew found him an hour later, he had taken a short cut to meet us at the main entrance while we had come up the main drive so we missed each other :--) It was lovely for us all to catch up and we tucked into a tasty lunch at the resorts bar with tea and welsh cakes to follow. While in west Wales we stayed at a fantastic site in Clarach....

Jul 13, 2009 - Riverdance, Wicklow & Oxegen Festival

Hi everyone! I have had a verrrry full past couple of days and am running on not a lot of sleep, but my weekend/end of last week was a lot of fun. On Wednesday, I went to see Riverdance at the Gaiety Theatre. A couple of us got dinner after work and then headed over to the show. I saw Riverdance back in Virginia four or five years ago, but I thought it would be fun to see again when I was actually IN the country where it originated. We bought the cheapest seats, in the second-to-last row, but it turned out almost the whole section in front...

Jul 22, 2006 - A week in the Wicklow area

Saturday 22nd. July. - Friday 28th. July. Raining today! We loaded up the car, golf clubs, cycles and all our usual junk, cleaned and tidied the house and by noon we were ready to leave. Again we had been given the use of a cottage near a place called Hollywood on the west of he Wicklow mountains by a friend of Sheila's called Fionnuala who we had met last year in Donagal. Its about four hours across Ireland to Wicklow but he roads are now quite good so it was a relatively easy drive. On arriving we found our scrap of paper to try to find...

Apr 2, 2006 - Wicklow trip

Got up early and took the DART train to Pat and Dianne's. Pat is my dad's cousin. Pat's relative on the other side of family also is living here in Dublin. Her name is Kelsey. She also met up with us. Pat drove us down the coast in his car down to a pub that serves a carvery lunch (a hot buffet kind of meal). It was really good. Lots of pubs here put on Carvery lunches. Pat drove us by Enya's castle and by Bono's house. We drove down to Bray which is right on the coast and got some ice cream. The roads here in Ireland are so narrow and...

Oct 22, 2005 - Dingle to Ballykissangel (sorry, Avoca)

Today was our longest and most wearying trip. Most of the roads were pretty good although it seems that all the main routes must go through the centre of every town. Travelled through Tralee, Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford and up to Avoca. This meant some delays from time to time but the worst was at Gorey. The main highway had a stop sign on it so everything ground to a halt whilst secondary traffic took precedence. Typically Irish methinks... Finally made it to Avoca in a very beautiful valley. Avoca is the town where Ballykissangel was...

Jul 24, 2005 - County Wicklow -The Garden of Ireland - Photographic Essay

County Wicklow is known as the garden of Ireland and for stressed out Dubliners, it is just that, a place to breathe and be at peace. Just thirty to forty minutes drive from Dublin's southern suburbs, it is a mountainous region of forested valleys, ancient monastic settlements and quiet sandy beaches. Spending an hour there is like falling in love again, it will fill the unsuspecting pilgrim with joy and inspiration. This green temple is an earthly heaven for those spirits that are battered and bruised. Imprisoned souls that have been...
