After we got off the train, a lovely man met us at Galway station and drove us to Ashford Castle.
I looked out at the green, green fields. Liking it so far! We finally arrived at Ashford Castle – but before I could go inside …… after a long train journey and car ride, I needed to do what I have to do!At the entrance of the castle were two dog statues – but of course!
A lot of the staff came to say hello! They were so welcoming. They knew I was coming and got fussed over.
But Mummy was particularly keen to show me that there are certain beasts with horns on their heads and need not be too afraid of them – I saw reindeers on Saturday and I wasn’t sure about them. Of course I wasn’t afraid of this statue. We were shown our room – think we like it.And then see what was in store for me! All these gifts from Pet Pyjamas!!! Wow!Later when Mummy and Wendeline went to tea, Geraldine said I could stay with her in the office. I wasn’t so sure at first –They took me for a walk around the grounds and they fussed over me in the office. Then it was all ok.
I am not allowed into any place where they serve food – but otherwise, they’ve made me feel extremely welcomed. When Mummy went out for dinner, I was left in the room. Mummy was concerned if I would bark and the staff responded – it’s ok. I’m a dog, I am allowed to bark. Now that’s understanding what I am. 🙂
May’s comment: Such a welcoming place – and while Darcy was not allowed in the places where food is served, they made us feel very welcomed.
We had booked Ashford Castle through Pet Pyjamas concierge – and they had sent a welcome pack for Darcy. Treats, toys and travel bowl.
Are we happy? Yes!
We now just need to be sure we can find our way back to Dublin.
