After London, I flew to Dublin for two nights - which really ended up equaling one day. I've never been to Ireland and after listening to the Once soundtrack two thousand times, I decided to make it happen. Dublin was very beautiful and quite a bit smaller than I thought it would be. I was able to easily walk around the city and cover a lot of ground. If I were to go back to Ireland I don't think I'd return to the city; I'd like to head out to the countryside instead and see some rolling green hills.
My first stop of the day was the Guinness Storehouse and I have to say that I really enjoyed this way more that I anticipated. It is an incredibly well designed tour and quite interesting - plus free pints. They are smart, that Guinness marketing machine. The very top of the building also offers an amazing 360* view of Dublin. And that was worth the admission itself.
I didn't take that many photos at all as I wandered around but I did happen to snap two important shots - a rainbow over the city (you just know there's a leprechaun and a pot of gold under that rainbow!) and my tasty Irish cider.
As we used to say when I worked at Bennigans... "Salinte!"
