Hey there everybody! It may be another bright and sunny Tuesday in Dublin, but here in Beastie Towers we're still dreaming of our recent adventures in Germany... ...

Beasties of the Deep!

Happy Friday, everyone! And with the high temperatures continuing, and still no sign of rain for us here in the Emerald Isle, a cooling dip in the sea might be just what we need... So isn't it lucky that when we left Explorer Beastie last week, he was just about to venture inside Düsseldorf's Aquazoo? … Continue reading Beasties of the Deep!

Plunkett, Eden Project Vegetable Garden - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

The View From Outside Eden

Can you believe it? Paddy and Plunkett are still exploring the Eden Project! I always thought that the main draw of this awesome place was the exotic plant communities that live inside the biomes, but WOW was I wrong! It turns out that there's a lot to see outside those bubble-like domes too. And, to … Continue reading The View From Outside Eden

(B)East of Eden 2 – Another Level!

Hello there Beastiebuddies! We're heading back to Cornwall this week, to rejoin Paddy and Plunkett as they make their way to the very top of the 50m tall Rainforest Biome at the Eden Project... No mean feat when you're only 6 inches tall! Since I've wanted to visit Eden for a reeeealllly long time, the … Continue reading (B)East of Eden 2 – Another Level!

Paddy's Vineyard Party, Eden Project - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

(B)East of Eden!

So, last week we learned that Paddy and Plunkett had taken a trip (another one!) to the south-west of England. And since they were in the neighbourhood, I got in touch to ask them a special favour...

Castles and the Coast – A Beastie Road Trip!

You know, I was almost concerned that I'd have no monster shenanigans to share this week! Winter is yet to release its grip on Dublin, and with plenty to keep me busy inside Beastie Towers, getting out and about has been pretty far down my list of priorities. Fortunately, Paddy and Plunkett have bailed me … Continue reading Castles and the Coast – A Beastie Road Trip!

Paddy and Plunket on the Boardwalk at Cuilcagh Mountain - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

Boghopping Beasties!

The terrible twosome are back! I was looking through my old emails the other day, and I came across an unblogged Paddy and Plunkett adventure from - ta daaaah! - a bright sunny day last June. I'm not sure about you, but Spring is taking its time getting into full swing here in Dublin... ...and … Continue reading Boghopping Beasties!

Explorer Beastie by the Sea, Fanad Head - CrawCrafts Beasties

Back to the Wild North West!

Explorer Beastie's been a bit quiet lately, hasn't he? But he always likes to take advantage of the post-Christmas lull to do a spot of out-of-town adventuring, and last week found both of us up in Donegal again, treading a slightly different path from the one we took this time last year. Actually, this breaking … Continue reading Back to the Wild North West!

A Winter Stroll with Paddy and Plunkett - CrawCrafts Beasties

Chillin’ With Paddy and Plunkett!

There's been some pretty chilly weather in Ireland and the UK this past week or so... And much as I love snow, I'm glad we just got a brief flurry here in Dublin last Tuesday, rather than the full-blown blizzard that hit Scotland and the north of England! But the plummeting temperatures reminded Paddy and … Continue reading Chillin’ With Paddy and Plunkett!
