Farmleigh House, Dublin

After one of our regular trips to the Hilan on Capel Street for an excellent value Sunday lunch, we drove across town to the Phoenix Park. Everytime I drive through the park, I am struck by its size. Today, the colours were amazing in the park - reds, browns and golds were everywhere as the leaves turn colour and fall off the trees.

We ended up parked at Farmleigh, where we wandered around the grounds before having a lovely cup of coffee in the fresh air at the charming Boathouse cafe. I was sorely tempted by the lovely looking cakes and desserts on display inside, especially these little mini loaves or the scones with cream and jam, but I resisted... barely.
