Day with no agenda…we grabbed a map and headed for the countryside. Our first stop was a cutsy little town called Skerries…little town right on the beach! A beach with sand!
In Skerries, it appeared that no one had an agenda…no certain place to go…and it was an ordinary Thursday where everyone was walking a baby or a dog. We were greeted with “top o’ the morning to ya”, and “Cheers!” Which we soon learned is a typical Irish greeting/goodbye. And all the gentlemen wore those adorable plaid, tweed hats. In Skerries, folks like to ride bikes like these with big lovely baskets of fresh produce and fish from the markets….sometimes flowers as there was an abundance of flower shops!
You can’t visit Skerries without going to visit their beautiful ole’ windmills. This windmill was built in 1500. It operated until the early 1900’s. 12 Euro will fetch you a guide and a tour inside this windmill and another one built in the 1900’s.
I know this looks just like a postcard….but I was here!
We headed for the country…stopping to snap a quick photo of this enormous field of Daffodils.
We headed up to Drogheda.
I felt really bad for taking their photo after having the best lamb stew ever!
We ate said lamb stew here…
Heading to Newgrange…
Malahide castle…right down the road from our B&B!
Happy St Patrick’s Day!!
I hope you enjoyed your “tour” through Ireland
