Oirschot, The Netherlands

Today we visited the charming village or Oirschot – such a pretty place with lovely shops.  It is just 15 minutes from Eindhoven it is apparently home to many wealthy Dutch – we saw a Lamborghini and a Bentley.  Not sure if this is true as we only are visitors.  Oirschot is the also home to De Steenuil Kinderboederij.

There was a pretty big ice skating rink which was very busy and the kids who do not know how to skate have to stay over to the side in a small area – Boxtel is better for our kids with the chairs – they keep asking when are we going back.

In August 2017, it will be home to the Icelandic Horse Championships. On their site there are tiny horses running very quickly and funny – perhaps that is the attraction – no clue.



There is a great cheese shop De Ster & Kaas Culinair which has amazing choices and I could spent an afternoon at a class learning about the various cheeses sold there.  If you zoom in there is some very moldy cheese…  Humm – not even sure I’d be willing to try it. I know it is supposed to be that way and it is amazing but with my migraines, I’m sure it will NOT be good for me.  We did end up buying other cheese – all so amazing!

After getting Brasserie TOF for a drink and bitterballen and a couple beers.   I’ll just point out how I LOVE how they include those lovely little paper things for your fingers – it’s such a plus for eating bitterballen.  Which normally I don’t eat but these ones were actually tasty.

In the evening we played the vintage Jumbo Jet game we picked up in the Kringloopwinklel in Leiden.

I think we’ll visit Oirschot again this trip before we head back to Dublin.
