11 things anyone who went on holidays to Courtown will understand

Those were the days.

COURTOWN IS A place where dreams are made of.

If you were lucky enough to be taken there during the summer holidays back in the good old days, you’ll know…

1. The visit to Pirates cove was the highlight of your year

It was like Disneyland… well, at least to someone who had never ever seen Disneyland in their lives.

2. You probably stayed in a caravan in Cahore, Ballymoney or Kilmuckridge

… and have a rivalry with everyone in a different mobile park.


3. The outdoor amusements by the beach were responsible for much of your penny-sweet puke

… until you grew up and swung the little ones around in the tea cups to scare the crap outta them.

4. You spent most of a bright day working off all the 99s by bodyboarding or jumping off some inflatable in the sea

It was FREEEZING, but what matter?

5. You remember eating sandy sandwiches on the beach, making sure you didn’t sit on the spiky reeds

You’d cut the feet off yourself if you stepped on them.

6. This summed up the evening visit to the pub


7. The slot machines made you feel like an actual grown up

Can I have another 20p, maaaaaaaaaaaam?

8. You’d insist on getting candy floss, only to be attacked by bees or seagulls

9. The 99s tasted better when you were freshly dry from the sea

10. No visit was complete without skipping down to the boats

Just to look at em.

With summer just around the corner let's hope we'll get a few days like this. Wouldn't it be great to see boats back in the harbour this year. Here's hoping! #sabikphotography #insta_ireland #instagram #instaireland #courtown #wexford #ireland #boat #boats #yacht #yachts #sky #clouds #cloud #sea #rnli #lifeboat sabik_photography sabik_photography

11. And it was the best craic you could have as a young’un

Simpler times…
