    Holidays in a lighthouse – great. Those Irish Landmark Trust folks are just brilliant, aren’t they. We stayed in St Annes Grove Gate Lodge a few years ago … happy memories.

    Hi, I enjoy reading your blogs!

    You were only around the corner from where we live now! Did you go and explore the gardens at Annsgrove? We love visiting there although unfortunately the vegetable gardens are off bounds this summer. The Sister gave us a Landmark Trust voucher as a wedding present – it was very much appreciated!

    My sis gave us a wedding pressie of the voucher too …. how weird is that!!!Yes we explored … and the caretaker even offered us wellies (such was the weather!). We went to a nice french place in mallow, La Bigoudenne.

    Great sisters’ minds think alike – must be a popular sister-of-the-bride present! You’d definitely need wellies around Annsgrove if the weather was any way bad. There are plenty of mucky places to explore there, especially in the gardens along by the river, and it would be a pity to miss out because of not having decent footwear. Was it La Bigoudenne in Fermoy? We’ve been there a couple of times – they do great buckwheat crèpes at lunchtime but their opening hours are a little erratic and I’m always missing out!

    Hi,I am handling the PR for a new consumer food and drink event which will take place in Belfast’s Custom House Square this September. The show will showcase the the breadth and quality of Northern Ireland’s food and drink directly to visitors and feature some fun events throughout the two day period. I wondered whether this may be something of interest. If so I can send you some further info, do let me know the best email to contact you on.Best wishes,Rachael
