Hello from Ireland

Hey all I am new to this section of the boards, I post on other parts of the boards quite regularly but first time here, I love listening to the show and just wanted to say hello to all that post here, seems to be quite a fun part of the boards from what I have seen.

Fáilte!

What part of Dublin are you from? My husband's extended family lives in the Connemara region so we did not spend much time in Howth/Dublin.

I am from south Dublin, Howth is on the other side of Dublin about a 40 minute drive or so, it's quite a nice spot. I have never been to Conemmara dis you enjoy yourself when you were over here? Did you spend much time in the city centre of Dublin? I hope you brought your rainjacket? Ha ha

We went in August 2001---my first time there, but my husband had been there multiple times. We only did an overnight stay at a B&B near Newgrange with my inlaws and our oldest nephew. My dh and I only had one week so most of the time we were daytripping out of a rental house near Galway. We had some meals with the Irish cousins.
We forgot our rain gear, but MIL had brought enough umberellas for us. We had one sunny day which was our last day. Dh and I are hoping to go back next year for at least 2 weeks with a couple of days in Dublin.

Welcome!! I formerly worked for a company that has a laboratory and manufacturing facilities near Dublin (Tallaght) so I had a chance to visit Dublin many times. It is a beautiful city with wonderful people. I hope to get back with my DW someday to visit my friends and colleagues there.

Some of the best meals I have enjoyed were at Roly's Bistro and Loch's in Dublin, my personal favorite.

Sláinte!

Hello

This is a great place to get your disney fix.
Hope you get to the parks soon.
Have you been to Euro Disney? I have always been curious to go.
Peace and Pixie Dust,

oooo you should really call in a voice mail to the show to say hello. Pete loves out of country callers and their accents.

Welcome to the podfamily!

Haha, so true- you'll have to call in soon- WELCOME! I have been thinking of calling in with a fake accent so that they will finally pick one of my questions

Edit- Ah I just noticed that is Julie posting above! This is the first picture of little Ferris that I have seen- what a cutie!

Sorry about the 3 post I'm not quite sure how to quote multiple times in one post

I would love to call in but I have never heard the phone number to call in from Ireland?

Also zendisney I go to Disney Paris quite a bit and have been to WDW the last 2 years and have another trip planned for 19 nights this Sep with free dining

Thanks everyone for the kind welcomes
