Dun Laoghaire

The view from our breakfast in the Forty Foot

For the most part on my recent trip to Ireland I was based in Dun Laohaire, just outside of Dublin. This is a place I have grown quite fond of and as the main purpose of the trip was to see family and friends and Dun Laohaire is very convenient for this. I have been here quite a few times now and I always enjoy. Here are some posts I have done on earlier visits:

Easter in Ireland 2017: Walking along the sea

One of the things I like the best when I am in Dun Laohaire is to walk along the sea and it is very nice for going on some lovely walks when it is not pouring down.

For the first few days the East coast of Ireland really showed itself from its best sunny side, with a cold crisp winter air and sunshine. But this time around I did not get the opportunity to sit down and enjoy a lovely ice cream on the pier. Mostly due to other appointmens involving food. But I will be sure to go on an empty stomac next time.

Now that I have been back at the office for almost a week I appreciate even more having the opportunity to go for a lovely long walk while it is still daylight out.

  1. Thanks for taking us out for a walk with you – beautiful scenery and I love the water as well, having grown up in Seattle, which looks very much like this!

  2. That view is stunning. We are having stagnant air right now and I would really love to breathe some fresh. I usually walk in the morning but with your beautiful scenery, it would lbe hard to go inside at all.
