A beautifully refurnished 18th century mansion housing the world-famous Albert Beit collection of art.
Our tour guide, Charles, was informative and more than willing to part with the family secrets as we made our way through this beautiful home filled with the most amazing furniture and art. This is the longest house in Ireland (700 fee of frontage) and given to the people of Ireland by the Beit famiy (heir to a portion of the DeBeer diamond fortune). Be sure tocheck out the interactive displays and 3D film in the basement. BTW we had a decent lunch in the cafe.

This drive takes you through stunning scenery. The roads though narrow are very good and visibility is excellent due to the lack of hedges. First class.

Fantastic stop if travelling through Baltinglass. Ruins are impressive and there is a very informative description board at the entrance giving you some insight and history of the Abbey.

My parents, my little brother and I went to Tinahely's Pumkin Patch today. I would highly recommend Tinahely. Firstly we listened to some storytelling, then we got a tractor ride to the pumpkin patch where we chose a pumpkin after choosing our pumpkins we went back and there was an indoor play area with go karts,sandpits, etc. for kids as well as a lovely little cafe and gift shop. I really enjoyed my visit perfect for young children.

This is personally one of favourite place to go for a run with the dog. It offers beautiful view on the top trail and a quaint river walk on the bottom trail.there are also some fantastic sculptures made from natural materials that blend in to surroundings.
