As the weather was pretty good on Saturday, we decided to head toward Wicklow and if we all agreed, we’d stop at a beach. We love the Wicklow Mountains and so figured let’s head that way. Next time I want to check out the Indian Sculpture Park.
Nils read that the Silver Strand was great, so we set off for that but then when we arrived at the sign we had to enter through a carvan park. Not sure what it was like and knowing we were only going to be there for an hour or so (if that) and as it was already 2 pm in the afternoon, we decided to skip paying the €10. parking fee. Instead we drove on about 20 minutes and stopped at Brittas Bay Beach which was a really lovely, blue flag beach. It had a maned life guard station and toilets in the car park. A short walk from the car park, we were at a nice open beach which was not busy. Immediately, our kids were into the water and running about.
As Maebh fell asleep we took the long route via the mountains and into South Dublin and stopped at The Bath Pub in Sandymount for a beer and pizza from Base – AMAZING pizza. We “celebrated” my turning 41 and Father’s Day together. Only problem was we were still hungry and could have had a third pizza. The waiter was a lousy salesman, said we should only get two vs three. 🙂 Glad we don’t live walking distance from there as the pub would be a local favorite and for now we keep it special.
