January has been a gusty month here in Dublin! We have had storms Gertrude, Henry and Imogen in quick succession all visiting and a few more due to visit in February. Spring seems very far away but I have spotted a few green shoots in our city garden and some daffodils already in bloom as I walked through Dublin which means that longer, brighter and sunnier days are en route.
The following are a couple of highlights that we shared with you during January!
Black Pudding is a Superfood!
Black pudding is packed with protein, iron, calcium & zinc and has been named as a superfood of 2016! We always serve the finest Clonakilty black pudding with our Irish breakfast and we can now indulge guilt free!
Feeling Spring like on Pinterest!
We are helping ourselves through this cold snap by focusing on the next season! Lots of gorgeous Spring flowers and arrangements over on our Ariel House Pinterest page. Happy pinning!
We love the way the winter sun hits the piano in the late afternoon in our drawing room!
Absolutely delighted to be included in Lovin Dublin’s Top Afternoon Tea spots…. We’re in really good company here! Thanks for the mention guys and another “Well Done” to our Afternoon Tea Team!
Irish Ancestry Search
This is really interesting. Type in your surname to see where your ancestors mainly lived in the late 1800’s!
We hope you have enjoyed our January round up. We are looking forward to February, Valentines’s Day and sharing some more recipes with you!
Till the next time!
