Last Monday, continuing with our little staycation, we visited the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin. I won’t go too in depth in this post about this lovely place, as I’ve already written about it once before. But, we had a lovely time and took many, many photos!
These are just a few of my favourites…
I love this place! Every time you go back, you see something new!

We finally had some nice weather! On Friday we got up early and headed into town to catch the train somewhere. We weren’t sure where, but once at Connolly station we decided we’d do the Greystones to Bray cliffwalk again. Was beautiful the first time, why not?
So, we took the train to Greystones. Got off and headed down to the beach.
We walked up and down the beach for about a mile looking for sea glass and shells.
Then we headed back into the town of Greystones for some coffee. We stopped at this cute little cafe, situated at the entrance of the cliffwalk, and had a big ol’ cappuccino and some apple pie. Was just the thing to re-energize us for the walk! Couple of health nuts, we are.
Then, off we were!
The cliffwalk itself is 8km. And it is a truly beautiful walk!
Once we got to Bray we stopped at this picnic bench to eat our sammiches and rest a minute.
The Bray promenade is just the cutest thing. I love all those brightly coloured buildings.
It was cooling down quite a bit by now, but we strolled along the beach again looking for more sea glass. I found all sorts of treasures, but I’m saving those for another post. :D
We were knackered by the time we got home, but it was a beautiful trip!
You can see the full length of our walk here in this neat little gadget.
You can even see when we speed up downhill and slow down uphill. Pretty cool!
