Beach Walks and Sunsets

Beach Walks and Sunsets

After a long day filled with activities, we love nothing more than heading to the beach for a walk, just before the sun sets. In Ireland we are about a 10-15 minute drive to one of our favorite beaches. In winter, we bring some hot chocolate and ramble along the shore, it's such a great end to the day, rain, hail or shine!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Dublin! The Burke's are a lovely family with a beautifully decorated, yet comfortable home. There were all the comforts of home, a wonderful kitchen to cook and bake, a delicious Nespresso machine for coffee, great rooms to sit and read, or gaze out the window at the activity outside. There are greens for the kids to play soccer and run around just down and across the road. The bus is steps outside the front door, and will get you into the City Centre within 20-30 minutes depending on the bus line. There are several that come often throughout the day. The village near the house is also adorable with a butcher, fresh fruit and veggie stand, bakery, and of course pubs. Although our favorite pubs were all in town, there is one walking distance, near the roundabout that is great for a family meal and a few pints for mom and dad, called the Kestrel Inn. The other ones in the village don't allow the kids in the actual pub, and weren't nearly as fun and lively. We highly recommend an exchange with this family. We are sad that the country cottage wasn't available when we had ours! :( Fiona is extremely helpful, and thorough, and we were in communication throughout our trip whenever we needed help with the house or area. They also have family in the neighborhood which was a great resource for questions, and for a new friend for my son! There were a few things that we should note: The streets are busy if you're crossing the road, be cautious! Laundry takes forever to do a cycle... (we're used to heat dryers) and there wasn't enough hot water for us most of the time, but I think we may have been doing something wrong. Ask Fiona for instructions on the hot water. (it was summertime for us, so a brisk shower wasn't too much a bother to worry about!)
