Ireland: Dublin

It’s been almost six months since my trip to Ireland; I feel horribly behind in these updates. Is anyone still out there?

By the time we arrived in Dublin, we’d already been in a car, a train, a plane, and a bus. After getting our car rental and learning how to drive in Europe (Just keep Beyoncé’s “to the left, to the left” in your head), our first stop was a place to sit, rest, and drink a hot cup of tea at the Brazen Head.

Once our second wind kicked in, we ventured out into the city. Trinity College Library was one of our first, and favorite stops. With two stories of floor to ceiling books, this library is reminiscent of the library in Beauty and Beast, and is just as impressive. There is no flash photography allowed as the light could degrade the old books.

     

There were many beautiful and colorful architectural details around the city; it was hard to pull myself away and head to our first B&B in Kilkenny.

   

The last night in Ireland was also spent in Dublin, though we arrived so close to dinner there wasn’t much time to further explore the city. On our walk to find dinner, though, we spotted a few unique pieces of street art.
