After a quick but somewhat terrifying flight from Aberdeen (damn you, Ryanair), we arrived in beautiful Dublin, Ireland. While we were there we visited Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral and the Guinness Storehouse. We also had a fun time walking around the Temple Bar District because there were pubs and drunks everywhere. If you’re not into drinking there are cafes, interesting stores, and musicians on the corners… plus the people-watching is worth a visit.
When our pub tour ended (after we had enjoyed our pints of Guinness at the top of the storehouse… bliss), we switched gears and took a city ghost tour. It was almost as terrifying as our Ryanair flight because it took place in the dark and the guide led us through churches and ruins all over the city. Plus three teenage girls in our group wouldn’t stop screaming. It was one of those things we thought might be cheesy and boring, but honestly, we still talk about our ghost tour because it was that much fun. Everyone should schedule a ghost tour while vacationing in Ireland!
Other than that, we enjoyed the architecture and gorgeous landscape. Look at that green grass!
While we were in Ireland, we stayed in the city and walked everywhere. Next time we plan a vacation we’ll be sure to rent a car and visit Blarney Castle and the Cliffs of Moher. I have a feeling that driving in Ireland will be similar to the experiences we had in Scotland’s countryside and I miss that!
Have you ever been to Dublin, Ireland?
