Birthday Celebrations

Hi everyone,

This week was my birthday and to mark the occasion my mammy took me to the Lodge at Ashford Castle in Mayo for some Afternoon Tea. I had never been before, and given I only live about 40 minutes drive away I was shocked at myself.



We tried the  new Picnic Afternoon Tea menu at The Lodge which I can say is a treat. It is served in a picnic basket and its full of lots of  tempting treats, made using ingredients sourced from the Ashford estate.


My favourite was the ‘Free range Crème Brûlée’ served like a boiled egg with short bread for dipping. Such novelty and fun!


The service is excellent and the grounds around the castle and estate are just stunning. Well worth a visit.


What I wore:

T Shirt with pearl detail from Pennys, Bracelet is Rose Gold from Kate Spade


Glasses: Bvulgari from Brown Thomas

Jacket: Chanel style pink jacket from Vero Moda last season Similar here, here, here and here.

Jeans: Molly River Island

Shoes: River Island glitter courts. Similar here, here and here.

Do take a trip out to Ashford Castle if you are in the area, it is well worth a visit. The little village of Cong is also so cute!

Much Love,

Aisling x
