I have spent the last week on holiday near Dublin. I have never been to southern Ireland before
and what a lovely place it is. Taking advantage of a shopping trip into Dublin I ventured into Avoca. Although well known throughout the world they only have shops in Ireland. It didn't disappoint and I just wanted to buy everything!
This then led to a trip to their mill further south. It is the oldest working mill in Ireland, founded in 1723. You are allowed to see the looms working and it is fascinating to look around. First of all we had lunch, Spinach and Ricotta Strudel with salad
Old cinema seats.
I love this chair.
This is one of the older looms
and these are some of the the looms currently in use.
Everywhere is so colourful.
and this is what I bought.
I can't wait to try some of the recipes in this cookbook.
