On our own doorstep - Malahide

Sometimes you don't realise the great facilities you have in your own area, usually you don't discover these until you have a visitor to bring around.  But today Sharon decided to take her mum around the Castle Gardens in Malahide Castle.  I tagged along and we had a great afternoon finished off with a great lunch in Avoca they certainly know how to do food! The gardens themselves are kept beautifully and so much larger than I thought they would be.  With the sun occasionally peeking out we wandered around the peaceful and tranquillity that are the gardens.  Unfortunately my camera battery ran out but here are some of the photos:
