If you haven't already been to Ardgillan Castle and Demesne you're going to want to head there very soon after reading this...
Spread across a whopping 194 acres, Ardgillan is the perfect place to go exploring; they've got stunning gardens, a deadly playground (with an age limit, unfortunately), gorgeous woods and one of the best views of the Irish Sea out to Lambay Island. Plus it's a 5-minute drive from Skerries, where you'll find deadly seafood and some of the best wings in Dublin.
To make the place even more appealing, they have added a brand new café called Paws at Argillan to the grounds, that just so happens to be dog-friendly.
Paws at Ardgillan is a unique new café that will give dog walkers the opportunity to dine with their dogs in the stunning surrounds of Ardgillan Castle. The dog-friendly facility is one of the first in Ireland and is certainly the first feature of its kind in a municipal park in the country.
This refreshing new initiative means that after a walk in the extensive and abundant wide open spaces of Ardgillan, dog walkers can sit with their dogs at a café table and partake in either hot or cold light food and refreshments.
Housed in one of the old cottages on the grounds, the café has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.
So you know where we'll be going this weekend!
