Hello, Goodbye

A couple of weekends ago we flew over to Ireland to say hello, goodbye to Peter and Roisin before their big move to Canada in May. Canada! How exciting?!

Roisin is the dream hostess. We were fed and watered like it was going of fashion, played Trivial Pursuit until 4 o'clock in the morning (please note that I was cheated out of a wedge by 'quizmaster' Ben) and had an all together fab time. 

We had a day trip out to Hook Head, the worlds oldest operational lighthouse, don't you know?

Home to some absolutely breathtaking views

Ben skimmed rocks, unsuccessfully

Throwing stones like a girl

Mr. Emma tried and failed to rescue a football

 Peter played with sea foam


We warmed up in the tea room and found some crayons to keep Ben quiet

Ben: "What colour is the lighthouse?"
Peter: "Take a look out of the window, Ben it's right there"

Ben: "Is it red?"
Me: "We've just walked right past it to get into the tea room"
Ben: *frustrated sigh*
Mr. Emma: "Ben, just look outside, it's right there"
Me: "It's black"
Ben: "Hmmmm.... I'm not sure if it's red or black"

 Later that night we head over to Azzurro, a lovely little restaurant in the fishing village of Dunmore East. The food was delicious - I can highly recommend the Dunmore East mussles with chorizo and the monkfish and chips. Yum!

We ended the night with a few drinks at The Vic in Tramore and finally made our way back home for a nightcap (or two).

Check out our morning after the night before, camera-resting-on-wheel-bin wonky group photo! Love it!

Ben, Roisin, Me, Peter, Mr. Emma and Charlie the dog
So, in honour of our quick-as-a-flash weekend away I feel I ought to have The Beatles to sing us out.

Good luck kids. See you soon! x
