This week’s photo is of one of a pair of dog statues flanking the gate leading into the Craft Courtyard at Malahide Castle, just outside Dublin. The Castle, parts of which date from the 12th c., was the home of the Talbot family for nearly 800 years.
The Castle and its extensive (250 acres) grounds now host a myriad of cultural and social events and activities, from house tours to botanic gardens, a model railway, and sports fields. A Castle receptionist told me that although dogs are not allowed in the Castle, they are allowed “anywhere around our grounds outside.”
Please send me links to your favorite dog travel photos! They’ll get listed below, for everyone to click on and view. Here’s how it works:
- Every Friday, I’ll put up a post like this one, sometime during the morning (Pacific time).
- If you have a blog or a website, post a dog travel photo on your site on Friday and link back here to the current week’s “Photo Friday” post so that your readers can see other great dog travel photos. Please take a moment to make sure that you are linking directly to your photo post instead of your homepage.
- If you don’t have a blog or a website, simply post your photo to Flickr (or Facebook, Twitpic, etc.).
- Using the inlinkz button below, paste in the link to your photo or your blog post. That way, Dog Jaunt will link back to you. Please include a few words in the “Name” box describing where you took the photo (in this case, “Name” refers to the name of your photo, not your name!).
