Now safely arrived and settled in Dublin, we were ready for the next, and final, part of our road trip in Ireland with kids part 3. Although we had already done some great things together, and visited some of the best castles in Ireland to visit with kids, I was still looking forward to our time in Dublin. It was still going to be a hectic time, but I had a few things planned for BattleKid, to ensure he enjoyed the last few days of our time in Ireland.

From dreary wet and grey Wales to mostly sunny and dry Portugal, we’ve gone through big changes in the 14 months since we left the UK for our new life in the sun.
Another South Wales castle that BattleKid had been to before we started our dragon hunting adventures, this castle was located less than 30 minutes from our house. And yet, for some reason had eluded us until just before we left the UK for our new life in Portugal. Well, we had to rectify that. And so, a dragon hunting adventure at Raglan Castle was planned, and BattleKid and I finally did it one February afternoon. Continue reading “A Dragon Hunting Adventure at Raglan Castle”
