This is the last instalment of our Ireland trip. On our last day, we explored the area of Greystones, where we had been staying during our trip. It’s a quiet little coastal town about 20 minutes from Dublin. The walk along the coast was quite quiet and peaceful, a real change from the hustle and bustle of London that I’m so used to now. It was nice to actually be able to stop and breathe and enjoy the crashing of the waves against the rocks and to smell the salty sea breeze.
We stopped off at a little cafe called The Happy Pear to warm up a bit but unfortunately I forgot to take any snaps! Apart from the most amazing hot chocolate I’ve ever had (here) made from real belgian chocolate chips! That is something that I will be trying to make at home at some point!
On the same day we also got a car tour of the Wicklow Mountains. You can see these from Dublin as they stretch for nearly 200 square miles and these mountains are the source of water for the Guinness brewery to make Guinness. We stopped off (excuse the borrowed pac-a-mac, it was raining!) to see the lake and it was really worth it! I even remembered the panoramic setting on my phone! ;-)
The next morning we flew back to London and our trip was over. Short, sweet and very much needed!
