Magazine Fort - Phoenix Park - 2pm

Hello and Happy Friday to you all!

With the sun shining on us this week we have to go out and take the opportunity to spend time in the great outdoors, so this Sunday we will be found wandering the Phoneix Park - specifically the area surrounding the Magazine Fort. There are spectacular views from this area across to the Dublin Mountains - so it's perfect for a nice spot of painting or sketching.
