what better way to bring the ‘europe with my family’ recap to a close than with a look at ireland’s wicklow national park?

observations made during our day in wicklow:

1.  my dad loves cemeteries.

2.  my dad loves taking pictures of cemeteries.

3.  it’s fun to say, “hey, look! this is where the sword fight scene in the princess pride was filmed*!”

4.  my parents have really mastered the ‘solemn in the graveyard’ face.

5.  ireland gets greener (and prettier) by the day.

 

 

*no – this is not where the sword fight scene in the princess bride was filmed.  but apparently part of ps i love you was filmed there?

i love cemeteries too. is that creepy???

and truth be told, while i think ireland is green, just getting back from austria (and this is not my first trip there) confirms that it is wayyyy greener. i dont know what they put in the soil there, but whatever it is needs to happen in more places haha.

Wow! What gorgeous pictures! I am so sad that in my short time living in England, I never made it over to Ireland.

Is this Glendalough and St.Kevins?
And I didn't see P.S. I Love You (I did read the book though) so I can't say if it was filmed there, but Ardmore Studios is in Wicklow and lots of stuff like The Tudors was filmed there so maybe thats where??
