Christmas in Ireland.

It's a bit late and we've all taken down the decorations, but I'm at a loss for what else to write about, so Christmas it is.

As you may have guessed from my very clever title, we spent our Christmas break in Ireland with Donal's family. We hired a car, drove across the UK, boarded a ferry, drove across Ireland, and a mere 12 hours later we were facing the Atlantic, ensconced in peat fires and drizzly weather. There's no length an Irishman won't go to get a good Guinness.

We had two weeks there. Lots of opportunities to

Visit family...


Play with friends at THE best softplay center...

Shop in Galway...

And get muddy in the woods...

I swear we even saw a leprechaun or two...

Happy 2012!


  1. You gave us another wonderful blog. It's quite like a television series and I had been anxiously awaiting the next episode. Your photos are to coin an English phrase, Brillant, but it's the words that create the story. Thanks

  2. What a wonderful adventure... looove the pictures in the woods and I'm sure I can speak for John and I of being super jealous of the sofyplay center.... Hope you had a great New Years Eve!

  3. Post-Christmas follow up - we all loved our homemade gifts! Love the family shot.

  4. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the picture of Donal and the boys in the woods.

  5. I love the family photos at the end of the travel photos. Arranging photos is always the most personable way to share a personal perspective.
