We spent a wonderful evening at Kilruddery House and Gardens. Killruddery is a true celebration of the Great Outdoors. Located only 30 minutes south of Dublin, Killruddery’s 800-acre estate is a sustainable, bio-diverse farm that includes flowering woodland, world-renowned 17th century gardens, cut flower gardens, high-hedged pathways, a natural amphitheater area, the Long Ponds and a Walled Garden. Special family-orientated features include a Faerie Woodland Village and a Giant Sandpit in the Apple Orchard.
It was the perfect location to take family portraits of my dear South African friends with two energetic kids. As they were planning their move back to South Africa these portraits also served as a reminder of their family’s chapter in Ireland.
