Malahide Castle - Ireland

I have returned from Ireland with happy memories....Ryan's parents took us to Dublin for Christmas! It was beautiful!

One day we took a bus ride to a near bye seaside town called Malahide, and visited the Malahide is set on 250 acres, and the grounds are amazing!!!! Just acres, and acres of neon green grass, lined with tall trees, and an occasional stone fence. We took a tour of the Castle, but were not allowed to take photos inside. Some of the Castle walls are 8 feet thick!!! For one of the ladies rooms there was an adjoining room, quite small, and circular in shape, lined with windows. It was where they would write letters, and admire the learning about that stuff.

So here are a couple pics of that day:

After visiting the Castle, we walked down the main street of Malahide to a pub called Gibneys, which was a recommendation by one of the locals. I forgot to take a picture, but if you click on the link above, there are some on their website. The beer was delicious!

Back with pics from another day soon!
