Samuel Beckett’s House by Ann Treacy

We (Patrick and I) have been on a big kick for walks since Patrick was jealous of my walk to Dun Laoghaire. I don’t know that he could have actually made the walk but he was jealous anyways. So Friday we walked through the Killiney Golf Course (straight up hill) and down to the beach. I don’t think it was really all that far to walk – but it was honestly uphill both ways. Actually it was fun. But you have to know where you’re going or at least be a good guesser. The closer you get to the beach the closer you get to some really, really nice homes. In fact we crossed the Vico Road (where Bono, Enya and others live) going from catwalk to catwalk to get to the beach. Sadly we didn’t have a camera.

I did bring a camera the on Saturday. We walked through Cabinteely Park (well that was out of the way but for folks who have visited us that will at least give you a general direction), through Brennanstown to Foxrock to the house where Sam Beckett grew up. It is a fancy walk. We saw horses, stables, the house where they have a dolmen in the garden, several embassies and some amazing homes. This time I did bring a camera.

In fairness to Patrick – Beckett’s house is not marked. Patrick had looked it up in advance. I took a picture of Patrick in front of the house – although I’m the one who actually read Beckett’s Trilogy. (Just had to fit that in.)
