So it’s Sunday driving season and given the economy is no more, most of us will be getting back to the cheaper pass times. That means out with shopping trips to New York (yeah apparently people did this) and in with visiting castles and the like. So if the recession is biting and you want to have a day out, try this. It’s a one day history trip based around county Laois encompassing two medieval castles and one Jane Austin-esque Country Mansion. It shouldn’t cost you more than petrol money and about a €10 for the entire family.
