My Top 5 Adventures:
When Annabella Forbes emailed me asking if she could do a Guest Post about Ireland for our blog I immediately jumped on the idea. Here are Annabella’s recommendations for 5 adventurous things to do in Ireland.
1. Visit the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin
This 1625 castle is one of Ireland’s little gems. You can enjoy a relaxed stroll around this fascinating place and even meet members of the family who will share amazing anecdotes with you. (Open during the summer)
2. Huntington Castle, Clonegal, Co. Carlow
The 40 Foot is a promontory 10 miles south of Dublin, in the village of Dun Laoghaire. This famous swimming spot is great for a quick dip in the sea and locals can be spotted here every day of the year including those brave souls who choose to take a Christmas dip here. Really fun and lots of great pubs to warm up in afterwards.
3. Swim in the “40 Foot”
4. The Giants Causeway, Bushmills, Co. Anrtim
Why not rent a car and take a drive right up to the north coast to see this amazing natural occurrence? Not big on rocks myself I really did find this a fascinating and extraordinary place plus there are beautiful walks along the coast. You’ll get the benefits of everything being that little bit cheaper in the north so don’t forget to stock up.
5. The Dublin Botanical Gardens in Glasnevin
