Ireland With Dumbo Day One – 7 May 2015

Voted this morning running into Michael Liebreich on the way (canvassing for the Tories outside the tube station) then on to the gym.  Loaded up Dumbo with my things and set off to the house.  Pottered about while Daisy got ready.

We set off just before 11.00 which wasn’t too bad.  Straightforward drive to North Wales with pitstop and driver change over at the M6 toll service station.  Daisy got the easier leg as it was heaving down with rain on the first leg.

The Quay, in Deganwy, near Conwy,  is a lovely hotel and spa – by the time we settled in the sun was well and truly out so we sat on our lovely terrace.  I even played my ukulele a little out there.

Took a suite so we had bags of room.  Superb dinner the Quay too with a crab starter (which we shared) and both had a trio of porks (which we didn’t share) and shared a death by chocolate desert – surplus to requirements but very nice.

Photographs from the whole of our trip to Ireland are gathered in an album on Flickr, click here.
