Scooting & Playground Fun @ Ardgillan Castle & Desmene

Back in September spent the afternoon at Ardgillan Castle & Demesne so we did it again yesterday.   This time both kids had their scooters.

 

 

 

The kids especially like the playground,  which is huge.  It really is great for all age groups and as an extra bonus it overlooks the sea, but I do think the slide is a bit high up and while I didn’t see any kids fall, I think it can easily happen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once again, we didn’t go inside the castle but will one day.  Hopefully next time we visit the rose garden will be in full blom as it was in September.  Being so early in spring, the only thing in bloom were some petnuias, crocuses and the daffodils.

 

and enough daisies on the grass to make a daisy chain – but we had a long walk up the hill which was a bit struggle for her so we skipped the daisy chain and struggled on towards the car.

 

Highly recommend a day out here and next Saturday is the annual Leprechaun Hunt!   Judging by the photos on their site, it’s probably madness and Nils would HATE it… so pretty sure we’ll skip it, but the kids wan to go!!  Perhaps I’ll copy the idea and do a Leprechaun Hunt in our house on St. Patrick’s Day… the kids have two days off.
