Killiney, the lovely seaside resort in south County Dublin.
At around mid-day, hubby and I got the bus into town, then the DART (Dublin
Area Rapid Transit), our wonderful train service which travels along our Dublin
Bay coastline, to Killiney Station. After walking the full length of Killiney
Beach we then sat on a rock to munch on our bananas and Hula Hoops, washed down
with, by then, warm bottled water. I was in seventh Heaven!
We had planned on walking the hour long journey back to Dalkey village but
en route decided to take in Killiney Hill. The climb was breathtaking in
every respect! Half way up I really did think I wouldn't be able to make
it, I was completely out of breath and gasping like a set of asthmatic
bagpipes! I knew hubby would have been disappointed and I definitely had
to prove to myself that this was well within my capability, so onward I
struggled. It was worth every wheeze as the images convey.
A couple of hours later we arrived in Dalkey village where we revived
ourselves with coffees in The Queens Bar and Restaurant in Castle
Street. Afterwards, headed to the DART station where we only had a few
minutes to wait for the train back to the city centre. As it was 5.30pm
and right in the middle of evening rush hour we strolled around town then met
up with our youngest son for dinner in Buswells Hotel, Molesworth Street, my
favourite haunt. All in all, a lovely day out.
