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?

You wait in there for your slot. (Well, that was the idea but it ended […]

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 […]
