A Trip To Dublin, Ireland

I've visited Ireland almost every year of my life since I was a baby, but I'd never explored Dublin until a couple of weeks ago.

My two sisters, brother's girlfriend and I headed off to Dublin for a bit of a girls weekend. We had a few things planned that we wanted to do and that including a lot of drinking. 

We stayed at a hotel just a short walk for the city centre, so pretty much perfectly located. We bought a 48 hour pass for the Dublin City Sight Seeing bus and it was a huge help for us in getting to see all of the typical touristy things we wanted to see. We visited the Guinness Factory, Kilmainham Gaol, The Leprechaun Museum and The National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology. We also spent a lot of time in pubs. The weekend we were over there, it was Trad Fest - meaning there was a lot of traditional Irish music being played in the pubs, which is pretty much heaven for all of us. We've grown up listening to Irish music and couldn't think of a better way to spend our nights.

We stopped off at The Temple Bar, The Storehouse Pub. The Palace and few more and drank more cider and black than we thought was possible. Eating out was a pretty standard occasion, eating at McDonalds, Nandos, Subway and The Bagel Bar - the affordability of those places was necessary when we were paying over €6.50 for a pint.

I had such a great weekend and would head back there in a heartbeat. I highly recommend it to anyone. The street art and architecture was incredible and the atmosphere was amazing. It's a busy city so don't expect to be able to get a seat in any of the bars - although we were lucky and managed it every time after a little bit of waiting and keeping an eye out for people getting ready to leave.
