    Have a wonderful time Mairead. Are you doing B&B? I've only been once and hope to get back some day. It is a beautiful country.

    Hi Mairead!

    Go for you! Have a great time. Enjoy the peace of the countryside. I would love to visit Ireland. Still have some cousins there. They live in County Sligo.

    A trip to Ireland is on my bucket list.:yes:

    aww thanks everyone! Will get some photos but not loads this time. We're staying with my cousin again, Bill and Ann. Mums sister and her hubby arrived from Surrey this morning and a cousin and his wife are over on Friday from London just for the night.

    The cousin, his wife, Mum and I are booked into this hotel on Friday night, can't wait!

    The Wexford Opera festival starts on Friday (or is it tomorrow?) so we can watch fireworks from the hotel then we'll all have dinner and drinks at the hotel. Bill, Ann, my Aunty and Uncle will join us too.

    It's so different to being here with the boys, missing them already :sorry:

    What a grand location!! Mairead, so nice. I am afraid the closest I have gotten to my ancestral home was Ireland in Bush Gardens (I am sure my ancestors are appauled!).

    Really must start planning a trip. My brother has been after me to go to Ireland. Need to begin the planning soon.
