Adventures of Eire continues this time with a stop off at Stradbally in Co Laois to visit the Woodland Railway Station. The boy is train and truck mad so this visit was mainly for him. I’ve avoided town and all the centenary celebrations due to the bump, I just couldn’t be dealing with the crowds but we did enjoy the parade on TV. (more…)

In the past year we have visited over twenty fun family destinations in Ireland as part of our Adventure of Eire series. Next stop was The National SEA LIFE Centre on the seafront in Bray. It’s an aquatic Zoo with numerous rocky displays, home to thousands of creatures including: Black Tip Reef Sharks, Starfish, Octopus, Seahorses, Stingrays and Red-Bellied Piranha. (more…)
This morning we had fifteen days of midterm to fill and with all three babogs screaming with energy at 10am this morning we loaded them into the car and continued our Adventures of Eire and headed off to Glendalough. It’s been many years since my last visit, so if I’m honest I had no idea what to expect or if the kids would even enjoy it. (more…)
Last years summer bucket list was one of my most popular posts and still to this day brings in huge amounts of traffic to my blog. I’ve been inundated with requests to do an Easter ‘bucket list’ for all the family so here’s my top 5 things to do this midterm and Easter holidays around Ireland. (more…)
‘Set sail from the wilds of Ireland’s West on a wonderful journey with Gabrielle and her annoying brother Karl as axis theatre transforms into an exciting world of pirates, high seas, courage and adventure.’
We’ve been to Disneyland Paris (EuroDisney) five times in the past six years, it’s most probably one of our favourite place in the world. I heart Disney! I’ve also been to Disneyland in California, a whole other world but that’s another day’s tale. I’d like to think we have a bit of experience when it comes to Disneyland so I’ve compiled a list of some Disneyland Paris tips and tricks (updated December 2019) to help you save some pennies, beat the queues, get there for the cheapest price possible and make your stay a little more enjoyable!

On Friday evening we had been invited along to the opening of Luggwoods Enchanted Forest. Upon arrival, we were greeted by some Elves and led to a portacabin to wait for the rest of the families in our time slot to arrive. Once they appeared we began our ninety-minute journey starting with ‘Santa’s train’. I’ll be honest I’ve been on plenty of trains but this train didn’t choo-choo, it was a trailer/open carriage pulled by a tractor kitted out and decorated in Christmas lights. (more…)
Last year we went to Christmas Island – The Santa Experience in Hidden Valley, Rathdrum, to visit Santa of course. Here’s how we got on and what to expect during your visit… (more…)
I must be crazy, a day shy of 39 weeks but we couldn’t resist continuing our Adventures of Eire with a little trip to Fort Lucan Outdoor Adventureland before Little Miss arrives. It’s been years since I last visited, probably on my 5th of 6th class school tour and it hasn’t changed one bit. It’s still as fun as ever! (more…)
I may be almost ready to pop with only a couple of weeks left before little miss arrives but I’m taking advantage of my summer off so I loaded the kids into the car with a mini picnic and headed down the m50/N11 to Glenroe Farm Co Wicklow, to continue our Adventure’s of Eire. It’s been over three years since our last visit and it was great to see it’s still as fun as ever.
Glenroe Farm is a family run business, established in 1994. Glenroe was a well-known series that aired on RTE during 1983-2001. The famous 350-year-old thatched farm cottage, home to Dinny, Biddy and Miley Byrne still stands just within the main entrance that now hosts a mini museum of exhibitions.
