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!
