Ben’s birthday, (my son) 3yrs ago at Brown’s Bay. So many memories from that day from this beautiful sunset and the giggles over Google Maps trying to direct us into the water in the car! 🙈😂 #MemoriesMade . Gonna do this again before summer is out, if I can. I’ve been diagnosed with Ménière’s Disease, which has halted my ability to drive far to take pics. I’m hoping to get back out there soon! ❤️

We were literally 5 minutes walking from this incredible spot. Sandycove Beach is an hidden gem in the south.
Eravamo letteralmente a 5 minuti a piedi da questo incredibile posto. La spiaggia di Sandycove è una piccola gemma nascosta nel sud.
It is surprising how many great men and women a small house will contain. I have had twenty-five or thirty souls, with their bodies, at once under my roof, and yet we often parted without being aware that we had come very near to one another.
📍Cobh , Ireland 🇮🇪
💡Interesting facts :
🔸Cobh (cove means small harbour) is on Great Island in Cork Harbour. In 1838, the Sirius, the first steamship to cross the Atlantic, sailed from Cobh, and in 1912, the Titanic made its last stop here on its fateful journey.
🔸Cobh had a shipbuilding industry (Verlome) and a steel-making plant (Irish Steel), until the 1980s. Cobh is also home to a large fishing fleet, and is very busy during the peak fishing season, between September and February. Every year thousands of tourists also arrive in Cobh, on large cruise ships.
