A weekend in Co. Antrim / Co. Derry


OK! Let’s call it spring… but it really feels like winter, doesn’t it?

Well, if there is one thing we have learnt (the hard way!) since we moved to Ireland, it’s that you cannot wait for the sun to come out if you want to make the most out of your free time with the kids. You have to go out and look for places that will “brighten up” the rainy days. Wellies and raincoats all packed in your suitcases, of course!

Maybe it’s because our boys have lived here most of their lives, but they do not seem to bother about the weather… Just look at the youngest showing us how to do it:

The things you can do/see/eat/enjoy along the DART line (part II)



Hi again - following from my last post about the DART line here, our next station southwards is Booterstown:

You would consider BOOTERSTOWN STATION  as convenient only for all the residents of this lovely and quiet  area... well, I would advise you to hop off the train here as well.

Christmas is only around the corner!

I guess all families have their own Christmas traditions: those things you do every year when Christmas spirit starts invading us all....

Well, we also have a few traditions, and one of them is going to Farmleigh:

Things you can do/see/eat/enjoy along the DART line (part I)

Hello again!

I have been meaning to write this post for quite some time now....

I would like to tell you about some of the fantastic things that can be done, seen, eaten... and more! along the DART line because, believe me: you do NOT need a car to enjoy a SPECTACULAR DAY OUT - DART offers you so many things you'll be amazed!

First thing: the tickets - you can get a 1 Day Family Ticket for 2 adults and up to 4 kids for just 20 EUR* and start the fun...

Now, the itinerary:

County Meath - so many things to see and do...

Not sure why... maybe because it's so close to Dublin, we had never properly visited County Meath. 

Yes, we had seen some of the most popular places there, but never stayed overnight, so last weekend we decided to pack our things and  get to know Meath a bit better.

And let me tell you: WE WILL BE BACK!
