A Taste of Ireland – the Capital

A Taste of Ireland – the Capital

The pomme de terre affair continued into Dublin, of course. For dinner our first night in the capital city, we meandered the streets until we were too hangry to try and choose a place, so we walked into a restaurant close to our immediate location. […]

Ireland – Dublin’ Down

Ireland – Dublin’ Down

We did a lot more wandering on our second day in Dublin. We visited St. Patrick’s Cathedral, but didn’t go in for a tour. We did sit in the park beside it for some casual dog watching. We didn’t do much bar-hopping this day. We […]

Ireland – Dublin’ the Fun

Ireland – Dublin’ the Fun

I was super excited to explore Dublin. We didn’t really have any set out plans, other than visiting the Guinness Brewery. It was nice to not have to be rushing around from thing to thing, it gave us the opportunity to walk around the city.

Our Air BnB was in a pretty good location. It was close enough we could walk, but we did a lot of busing. We got a 72 hour pass for the city bus at one of the tourism bureaus. This was handy, and it was the perfect amount of time for how long we were visiting.

In our wandering, we made it to the infamous Grafton Street. We perused the shops along the way and wandered into the George’s Street Arcade.

We also paid a visit to the Ha’Penny Bridge. Did you know it got it’s name from how much it used to cost to cross it? Half a penny!!

We couldn’t pass up an opportunity to have a drink at the infamous Temple Bar! We went during the day so I’m sure it gets much crazier at night. We didn’t stay for long, just enough time to say we did.

P.S. My drink of choice in Ireland was Orchard Thieves Cider.

Ireland – All I Wanted and Moher

For as long as I knew it was a place, I’ve wanted to visit Ireland. One of the reasons for that is the iconic views at the Cliffs of Moher. For me they represented quintessential Ireland. The lush greenery, the sweeping views of the ocean, […]

Ireland – Galway Girlin’

Ireland – Galway Girlin’

Did I mostly know Galway from pop culture references such as the 2007 sobfest “P.S. I Love You” and hit Ed Sheeran song that you’re probably sick of Galway Girl? Sure. But I fell in love with the small(ish) city on the western coast of […]
