Slane is the village where we moved to after visiting Dublin, to a friend’s beautiful house, in a very quiet area, with green grass and cows and sheep wondering around, with a sunny weather, good enough to put you into that ‘It’s almost summer and I can only think about vacations’ mood.
Dublin was initially planned for 5 days, but then Carrick-A-Rede, Giant’s Causeway and a few other cool places around Ireland and Northern Ireland came up and we just couldn’t resist the temptation of not going out of the city and enjoy a beautiful, warm and sunny spring end on the island.
Visiting The Newgrange and Knowth Museum (known as Brú na Bóinne World Heritage Site) was definitely not planned when we first set foot in the plane from Bucharest to Dublin, but I guess that for some trips we make, it’s good to be spontaneous and accept the invitation to do something else than what you were initially thinking of doing while in Ireland.
During our stay in Dublin, we took a one day trip to Howth, which is a small port village, about 30 minutes drive from Dublin. We had an excellent weather for this trip and it was a great place to be on such a sunny day.
