Given our changeable weather, layers of clothing is always advisable in the land of the leprechaun. On an average day it’s recommended to bring your rain gear, wellies, sun cream and shades on any outdoor adventure because the weather can be so unpredictable. However over the past week the country is smiling, the weather is bliss and the barbeques have been dusted off. Ireland is delightful when the sun is shining!


This week we visited Bray twice, it’s one of my favourite places to go when the sun comes out to play. It’s free, perfect for a picnic or Fish and Chips and has both sand and stones for the kids. It has a newish playground, a mini carnival for small kids, beautiful scenic views and some of the best ice-creams ever! Both the kids played for a couple of hours, no fighting or whingeing until it was time to leave. Poor little man was beyond devastated when we left until we gave him a baby cone for the journey home. We call it the aeroplane beach because the air show is held there every summer and it’s one of Kayla’s favourite summer activities. This year it’s been held on the 19th of July and it’s a family day out not to be missed!


Kayla finishes school in two weeks so it’s time to sit down and make our summer bucket list. There is so many places we want to visit as part of our Alphabet of Adventure like The Botanic Gardens, Powerscourt Waterfall, Glendalough and Fort Lucan. I just hope we see more of this weather over the coming weeks to make it the best summer holidays ever!

P.S if your heading the beach this summer DON’T FORGET YOUR TALC!!
