Today I drove a couple of hours into Southern Ireland to the gorgeous seaside town of Malahide to meet my friend Beth and her daughters Iona and Zoe, who are over for a weeks holiday.

Malahide is just north of Dublin and one of the most picturesque places that I have been to in Eire.

We brought Jack our black lab and Beth had brought her 'Heinz 57 Varieties' Tootsie. As the owner of a big dog, I couldn't belive how cute Tootsie is and how fast those tiny legs can run! We took the kids to the playpark in the grounds of Malahide castle and the sun shone throughout.

If anyone is wanting to visit Ireland and isn't sure where to visit, I'd definitely recommend stopping off in Malahide.

Oh and there's great shops too!


  1. I so envy you! I've always dreamed of visiting Ireland...but never have made it there...not yet anyway! I love seeing your pictures. It makes me want to visit even more :)

  2. oh you should visit if you ever get the chance. just don't forget to bring a raincoat :D

  3. Wow must be nice :) I got the chance to visit Dublin, Cork, and Allihies (very small town on Beara Peninsula) when I was in college. Ireland is a beautiful place.
