Mountain Folk

A belated Happy Halloween to all!

It seems every holiday brings with it very busy schedules so this post is a bit late. So Rob and I headed up the Dublin mountains a couple weeks back for some hill walking and although it is getting bitterly cold, I would still recommend getting your boots on and heading up there if you haven’t been recently or at all. The views from the top are gorgeous to say the least and that sense of achievement when you reach the top is almost as satisfying as that first pint of the weekend. There are various trails to choose from up there but I knew of a tree climbing adventure centre with toilets, a shop and parking so that’s where we decided to park up. We had no idea how long the trail was when we started we just followed the path until we reached the top. It took about 2 hours in total so definitely be prepared with snacks and lots of water. It was very peaceful and really made us grateful to live in such a beautiful country. Cities can really run a person down and make us all go a bit mad at times so if you ever feel blue go run up the mountain and I guarantee your problems will seem very small from up there!

I hope this inspires some of you to get out and explore for an afternoon. And stop into Johnny Fox’s on the way home for a celebratory pint to top it off!

This poor guy was lost and followed us the whole way back down the mountain. We very nearly brought him home with us, some day!
