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?
