So today we took a spin out to Malahide Castle to visit Tara's Palace, which is a GIANT dolls house that was built way back in the days of yore.... which was sometime around the turn of emm the century or something. Whatever,history wasn't my bag. Anyhow it's in a beautiful little museum (with a lovely lady selling tickets for it at the door. "2 tickets for the 2 dolls..to see the dolls" hehe) which houses many dolls houses from the 1900 upwards. The collection includes some from Vivienne Green as well as a house owned by Lady Wilde (Oscar's Ma).
Photography was banned , and as Me and Lou live our lives like undeniable rebels we didn't take any snaps but found some on the net instead.
It's only €4 euro in , with every penny going to various children's charities.
So go on and spend a rainy Sunday in the valley of the dolls.
After that, we headed outside to the lashings of rain and pegged it to the car. Seriously I felt like screaming apologies at all the poor tourists braving it in their wet gear. I guess though if you want to see the country in it's truest form then today was as close as yer gona get.
Then it was time for our favouirte activity. Shopping.
We visited the gorgeous Cath Kidston store in Dundrum shopping centre and the lovely girls working there let us take some snaps.
We want to live there waa! (ps I'm moving house soon so vouchers for said store will be a gratefully accepted house warming present ahem ahem)
We both bought gorgeous mini suitcases with a smaller suitcase inside it at the cheap ole price of €16 , sure where would ye be goin!
After there we headed to the cinema (via urban outfitters, of course) to check out Angel's and Demons.
Turns out Tom Hanks and the Catholic Church were like peas and carrots again.
