Hello Lovely people,
A little late, as ever, but i’m finally writing about my long weekend in Dublin. I went on the first weekend of June and its now July. Oops.
I thought Dublin was a really cool city. We were so lucky with the weather too, the sun was shining the whole time!! The taxi drivers said to us, this is really rare! I now think back as it being a really sunny lovely place.
We arrived late Thursday evening and just chilled. Friday morning we got up fairly early and went exploring. We went to the little museum of Dublin. I would definitely recommend doing this. It’s a really small quirky place and the guide was so funny and I actually learnt so much about Dublin’s History. We were also given a 10% off voucher for the cafe downstairs at the museum which served really delicious food. I got a Goats cheese and beetroot sandwich, I didn’t get a photo as I was too busy enjoying it lol. We then walked to the other side of the city to the Guinness Store factory. My favourite bit was the roof top bar, some amazing views and a lovely place to drink my pint
Saturday we took a boat tour along the river which i would also recommend. Again, I learnt loads about Dublin and the guide was really nice 🙂
We stayed in an apartment near to the Dog racing track that we found on http://www.airbnb.co.uk . It was perfect for what we needed it for and it was really nice to be able to sit on the balcony with prosecco and strawberries and watch the races on Saturday night 🙂
About 10.30 Saturday night we headed to the area of the city known as Temple Bar. this is a strip of pubs and bars along the river. if you go to dublin you must go here! every place we went had live irish music. ! I drank Guinness the whole night lol. It was really good fun. There was a real mixture of people, young and old and it made for a really good night.
I think a long weekend was the perfect amount of time to spend in this City and if you get the chance to go, do it !
