Wetsport House

This now seems like an age ago, but last month Ali and I went to Wesport in Co. Mayo to stay with his mum and aunt and relax for a few days! Westport is somewhere I used to visit every summer with my family when I was little, it was so fun to go back and recognise pubs, shops, beaches and all the things I did as a child (pubs included, my parent's favourite one had a play park for the kids!). One of of the days we visited Wesport house, which is one of Ireland's most beautiful stately homes which was built in 1730. It's in the middle of gorgeous grounds which are open to the public as well. We used to go there a lot when we stayed in Westport house and I account my love of old houses to looking around it when I was young. I was glad to see it had all been kept as it was when we visited, and I thought I'd share some of my photos with you.

I tried to get outfit snaps but the wind wasn't behaving and neither was Lola! My bag and dress are from ASOS.

Relaxing with a hot chocolate in Wesport town. I meant to take more photos of the trip but it was nice to just set the camera down and enjoy the moment! x
