Yesterday, we spent in Kilmacurragh House in Kilbride, Co Wicklow. A little friend was having a birthday party there. It was a bit blustery, but the kids just legged it around and kept warm. They had a ball.
It's the best time of year to visit. The Rhododendron's were in full bloom and it was stunning. Here's a selection of photo's from the beautiful gardens.
This amazing tree stump is always a high-light for the kids. Isn't it incredible?
Beautiful trees abound. Each one more breathtaking than the last.
I don't know what it is about this magical place but the colours are out of this world. The grass is greener. The trees brighter. The flowers more intense. It has to be seen to be believed.
A healthy dose of magic and fresh air. The peaceful, exhausted silence in the back of the car afterwards said it all. All except Sweet William who beamed and cooed and sang all the way home. Dear heart...
