Fethard-On-Sea Crazy legs Mable

Mam, Chief and Lady

You might remember my post last year about our holiday to Wexford with the dogs. Well the trip was so successful that we decided to do it again this year, and just like that it became ‘a thing’. This year’s Dog Holiday didn’t have as many visitors (although it did have a very important one who was willing to spend hours throwing Chief his ball and giving Lady cuddles) and we only went for 5 days but as usual Chief and Lady loved every minute of it. I would definitely recommend Fethard-On-Sea as a place to visit in Ireland and it has beautiful beaches. We were very lucky this year as we got to meet a Basset puppy called Mable who was desperate to play with our dogs but Chief was terrified of her. We also got to meet two other basset owners which was great because they’re the only type of people who consider Chief to be thin.

Roll on Dog’s Holiday 2015.

Let me tell you, Irish people LOVE to give out about Ireland. Don’t get me wrong, I can complain about our government like the best of them, but I still love this country. I meet people all the time who complain about Ireland and say how much they hate it, yet they’re still here. I like to think of Ireland the same way I think of the people I love. It has flaws but it’s worth it because there’s so much to love. 

Warning: I’m about to boast about my country. 

I recently found out that the Gardens in Powerscourt were voted 3rd in ‘The Top 10 Gardens in the World’ by National Geographic. How freaking awesome is that? Even better news….they’re only about 45 minutes from where I live. I’d been to Powerscourt Waterfall but never the Gardens so Kiara and I decided to take Layla there for the day and bring a picnic. We had a lovely day out and I was pretty impressed with the Gardens. Unfortunately the photos aren’t the best because I didn’t have my SLR with me but they’ll do.

I’d recommend people add it to their list if they have a spare day in Ireland. Is there anywhere nice to visit near where you live?
