Advent Calendar Day 8

image

Galway was stunning! Between all the feasting that went on last night, I managed to find some inspiration for The Glen House.
image

This arrangement was hung above our table at dinner. Set into a window with shutters (just like the windows at home), the fairy lights were intertwined with twigs, baubles and stars. Simple, but beautiful.
image

Even in the pub I saw a cute decoration of baubles and pomegranates, (not onions!!!) hung off a light beside the fireplace.
image

I loved the simple way this fireplace was decorated with reds and golds, it caught my eye at breakfast.

Back at the Christmas market today, the stalls smelt and looked fabulous…. Burgers and German sausage stalls were nestled between festive stalls selling mulled wine.
image

There were all sorts of cakes, pretzels and tarts as well as meringues and macaroons!
image

I bought some pistachio and cinnamon meringues, really looking forward to them!
image

There were sweetie stalls with children begging exhausted parents for this and that… For the parents there was an assortment of turkish delight.
image

Strange flavours such as banana and apple were piled high.

So, full of ideas and with a full belly I’m off back to The Glen House.

Advent Calendar Day 7

image

So excited…. Off to Galway Christmas market to eat, drink and be merry! I’m really looking forward to buying some festive bits for

The Glen House…

Had a yummy hot chocolate to get me in the festive mood (and warm me up); it was thick and chocolatey with a good splash of amaretto and whipped creamed. It was followed by a pork wrap from this bad boy….

I’ve been suprised by all the outdoor goodies here, they’ve given me ideas about what to do outside The Glen House…

I’ll fill you in on all the foodie stalls tomorrow… For now I’m off to warm up some more in a Christmassy pub!
