Then we hopped on to the second level of a double decker bus to a village called Malahide. Our first stop was the incredible Malahide castle. It was beautiful. The castle was built in 1190 and the same family, the Talbots, lived there until 1975 (!!!) but it was sold for the inheritance money because the son and daughter who inherited it never married and had no one to pass it on too. So now it can be toured and viewed by the public. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside unfortunately, but take my word for it - it was beeeautiful.
Prince, you know, "oh, no let's go! let's go crazy!" and "kiss" and "raspberry beret" is in town and is having a concert right behind where I was standing to take this picture. It was sold out, I did inquire.
Then we wandered around the village of Malahide and had lunch at a pub.
We had fish 'n chips and Guiness. YUM!
Grandma: Hold up your fish!! Cause it is such a nice big fish!
Now we're back at the B&B, sipping wine, and getting excited for more fun to come tomorrow. We're going down south to see County Cork, where the country side is even more beautiful! Tomorrow's blog may just have to be a plain old picture blog.
