Dublin Rambling

I hope that those of you who celebrate it had a fun and relaxing Memorial Day weekend with your loved ones!  I got my first hint of sunburn and ate far too much potato salad.  I’ll call that a success.

I realized that I still had a few photos to share from my trip to Ireland.  We only spent one day in Dublin, but we managed to hit our two main objectives:  The Book of Kells in Trinity College, and the Guinness Storehouse.  I am proud to say that I am now officially certified to pour (and drink) the perfect pint.

I wasn’t allowed to take photos of the actual book, so this is my proof that I was somewhere in the vicinity of the Book of Kells.

  1. I came across your blog, and I absolutely love it! I have recently started my own food and travel blog, and you have truly nailed what I hope to accomplish. Follow me to check it out, let me know your thoughts, and finally…keep writing!!! You’re great at it 🙂

  2. I did these exact two things ten years ago during a week-long exchange trip in Dublin! I need to go back though. It was before Iphones/digital cameras were a thing and my memories are very vague. Great pictures.

  3. Ha! Proper Irish. 😀 I’d genuinely never really thought of going to Ireland before. I was all “Meh, it’ll be the same as Wales, England and Scotland” but the more I read about it on here, the more I quite fancy taking a trip over.:D

  4. I have fond (fun…!) memories Dublin. My trip there was actually a part of the Irish writers class I took while studying in the UK. It turned out to be less of a class trip and more of a “let’s find pubs where famous Irish writers used to frequent and drink Guinness with the prof just like they used to!” Love that city 🙂
