Earlier this year, I and my family embarked on an adventure.
We sold many of our belongings, put the rest into storage, and took our five kids on a trip to The British Isles for four months!
The idea is that instead of racing around from one tourist destination to another, you stay in houses a bit longer-term 2-4 weeks at a time, so you can truly drink in the surroundings.
Our travels began with six glorious weeks in Ireland!
Here are just a few photos from that trip (I took sooo many!)
This post will feature our photos from Portmarnock Beach and Trim Castle!
No doubt, we will be back again!
Portmarnock Beach - one of our favorites!! The sand is incredibly soft, the water is perfect, and this side of the beach was not populated at all. A wonderful day!
My youngest son and I at Trim Castle. The first "real" castle they'd ever been to!
This castle is huge and very old! Fascinating.
I was thrilled to finally be here, taking in this 700-year-old beauty!
My son, Ryder. He wasn't supposed to be up there, I don't think... but he climbed before I could notice. He was pretty impressed!
I couldn't get enough of this architecture.
Me, in one of the tunnels within Trim Castle. I can't remember what this particular room was used for.
Heading into the tower for a tour! These doors are 😍🤩
The kids checking the view from one of the tower windows.. amazing!
Who wouldn't want a stairwell like this?!? #lifegoals
The top of the tower!
The view from the top of Trim Castle into the courtyard... love it!
And... the view from the top! So glorious!
I hope you enjoyed these photos, and there will definitely be more posts... I didn't want to cram them all into one or two posts, there are too many amazing photos and places to share with you!
