Days Out

We’re lucky to live in a country so rich in history and the great houses have stood the test of time…

I am obsessed with places like Powerscourt Estate, Carton House Ashford Castle, Castle Leslie of Charleville Forest Castle…. I walk through the halls, wondering what the walls would say if they could talk…

Luckily, most of these houses that have run down, have been lovingly restored through dedicated teams of trustees and volunteers. I often begrudge the fact that they have become hotels but I understand that in most cases, it’s the only way the buildings can thrive and stand the test of time..

Follow me as I explore and write about these places on the blog..
