Hello everybody! How's your week going? We've been enjoying some beautiful crisp Autumn days here recently - the bright sun and cool air really helps clear the cobwebs.

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!

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!

Paddy, Plunkett and a Very Familiar Curragh - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

Off the Rails with Paddy and Plunkett!

Or rather on the rails, because the boys recently took a road trip... By train! Their first port of call after leaving home was (of course) a quick tea break in Belfast. You can't go adventuring without fuelling up first! They found a nice spot where they could look out at the City Hall, and … Continue reading Off the Rails with Paddy and Plunkett!

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!

Cliff Climbs and Fun Times

It's been a while since Explorer Beastie got out anywhere, hasn't it? So, when we were offered the chance to get away for a day and see The Gobbins Cliff Path in beautiful Co. Antrim, we were both pretty excited! We'd heard a lot about this place from other people... and from other Beasties, too. … Continue reading Cliff Climbs and Fun Times

Paddy and Plunkett – The Boys in Green!

Hello from Gleno! Last week, I promised you greenery galore, in celebration of the lush, verdant delights of the Irish summer! Our summer here is, well, a little temperamental. On any given day, you could head out with an umbrella, a woolly jumper and sunglasses, and odds are you'll have the chance to use all … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett – The Boys in Green!

Traces of Days Gone By

I really wasn't sure what I was going to write about today. I have a lot of things on the go at the minute, but none of them are at a newsworthy stage yet, so this morning found me (only a little desperately) trawling through my copious Beastie photo archive, plus ALL my emails, in … Continue reading Traces of Days Gone By

Paddy at Ballintoy Harbour - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

Paddy and Plunkett, Home Again… (Almost!)

It's been quite a summer for Paddy and Plunkett! They've spent a glorious couple of months seeing all there is to see in Sussex and Kent, from white cliffs and lighthouses... ... To fantastic castles! But it's hard to get out of the way of travelling once you get started, so after the briefest of … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett, Home Again… (Almost!)

Monster Highway in the Forest! CrawCrafts Beasties

More From The Fairy Forest!

Regular BeastieBlog readers will know that Explorer Beastie and I were literally away with the fairies a couple of weeks ago! But as I was tidying up the photo files from our trip away, I saw that there were loads of other non-fairy photos that I hadn't had a chance to use. Away from the … Continue reading More From The Fairy Forest!
