Wexford Lavender Farm - Different, pretty, near Dublin, fun for everyone ;-)

As some of you know, I am always on the look for new places to visit, cafés to try, parks to test... but I have to admit that I had never heard of Wexford Lavender Farm until a couple of weeks ago, when a friend of a friend posted a couple of pictures on social media.... the place seemed perfect for a day out, so earlier this week we decided to pay them a visit.

The place didn't disappoint!




The farm is in County Wexford, only 1.5 hours by car from Dublin, not difficult to find



and the entry price is 3 EUR per car (really affordable!).

When we arrived, at around 11 am, the car park was still almost empty, so I'd say that is a good time to start the visit.



The fields of lavenders are very pretty, as they have different colours, and there are also other flowers around which make you want to take pictures all the time!!! 









Even the boys took a few with their phones (if you want to keep them interested, give them a camera or a mobile phone to take pictures during the visit!!).




And there are so many little details... 




Once you get to the bottom of the fields, there are a couple of routes you can do (we were given a sheet with instructions when we arrived at the farm). We did the shorter route, which took about 40 mins to finish (it's a loop) 






a nice walk to get ready to have a nice cup of tea and a piece of cake in the cafe (that has a terrace with several tables).



There is also a little shop that is worth a visit and a playground for the little ones beside the car park!






On our way back to Dublin we stopped @Brittas Bay so the dog could run around a little bit, so if the weather is nice, don't forget to take your swimming suits and towels - you may need them ;-).

So if you are looking for a plan that is different from the "home-playground-ice cream-home" (that we all do at least once every weekend) but doesn't involve breaking the piggy bank or spending a whole weekend away from home, I would recommend Wexford Lavender Farm: I believe you'll like it!
