A Trip in to Wicklow, County Wicklow, Ireland - 8th August 2014

Day Two starts off rainy, so we decide to drive in to Wicklow (in Philly's car, by relay, so we don't have to detach the van), mostly in order to find a pub for some lunch. After said lunch, we end up going for a tour around Wicklow's historic old Gaol. It's a good way of avoiding rain for a while...
