There's no way like the Wicklow Way
We just had a wonderful Easter holiday with our visitors, Nicole & Trygve. They arrived last Thursday. We got to explore County Wicklow for the first time, more Guinness time and a beautiful visit to Howth on Easter.
I'm beginning to be an expert at Guinness. Pretty soon the folks at Guinness will be begging me to give tours.
The next day with a forecast full of sunshine, we headed out to Powerscourt Gardens in County Wicklow. To get there we took the DART train to Bray. As soon as we arrived, it was pouring rain (liar weatherman!!). But after a cup of coffee and a 20 minute wait for the 185 bus, the showers had passed. Riding a bus on the narrow roads of Ireland is possibly scarier than driving on them! We were rewarded for all our patience and travel once we arrived at the beautiful Powerscourt Gardens.

Richard also spotted a mini-celebrity sighting. Andrew McCarthy at Powerscourt Gardens. He was there with friends and his family. I'd show you the picture I snapped of him, but it's just the back of his head.
