I had the good fortune of spending part of my weekend with a crew of gals who were in from Texas. So here’s a little shout out to my visitors: Mary, Patty, Pat and Nancy. I had such a great time hanging out with them — they’re fun, enthusiastic, love to travel and were so sweet and loving to one another (but that didn’t keep them from some good-hearted poking fun at each other).
We had a night out at an authentic Italian restaurant in town followed by a day in Phoenix Park on Sunday. We headed to Farmleigh House — the 78 acre estate which once was part of the Guinness family. The original house was a small Georgian estate built in the late 18th century with later additions in the early 1900s. While we didn’t make the tour, we were able to take a wander and see the grounds on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. http://www.farmleigh.ie/
