Santa’s Cove – Liffey Valley… Worth €25 A Child?

On Friday we were invited to the preview of Santa’s Cove – located in Pirate’s Cove, Liffey Valley.  They open to the public today, Sunday 19th.  We do a Santa Experience every year so we were excited to go along to this new one and see what it was like.  First impressions? The first sentence out of my 6 year old’s mouth was “It doesn’t look very Christmassy.”  This was as we were lead in to the waiting area – you know where all the bouncy castles and big bouncy slide is in Pirate’s Cove.. You wait in there for your slot. (Well, that was the idea but it ended […]

Johnny Magory Book Review and GIVEAWAY…

There’s three books available so far.  Johnny Magory in […]

Tayto Park Revisited…

Last Summer we took a trip to Tayto Park and the kids absolutely loved it! You can read our initial review here.  This year we had some friends visiting all the way from Texas, and they’re mad for everything Irish which includes Tayto crisps!  They’ve been to Ireland many times but hadn’t gotten to Tayto Park yet so we had to bring them along.  We went last Saturday (June 24th) nice and early. We got there for about half 10 because I thought the place would be jam packed.  There was no queue at all going in which was grand. I asked the (very friendly) security guard how busy it […]

Alflorex Update – For My Child That Lives On Movicol…

So about 6 or 7 weeks ago I posted a picture of a box of Alflorex PrecisionBiotics with a description saying that my child has lived on movicol for years with very little improvement, and saying that I was going to give this a go to see if it helps. I really was blown away by the amount of comments. The post reached over 26,000 people and there were hundreds of comments from parents saying they have the exact same problem. It actually made me feel better in a way knowing that so many kids are having the same problems and it’s not just my son! It made me feel […]
