Tonight’s my last night in Dublin. I’m getting ready to fly to Paris tomorrow (woooo!) but I wanted to give a brief update before I disappeared into vacation again.
We stayed near the grand canal, which was a cute area:
There are loads of buses in dublin so it’s pretty easy to get around and see all the sights. Overall one of my favorite things about Dublin was the architecture:
The other thing I loved about Dublin was the food. I forgot to take photos of some of the stuff I ate (mmmm, giant pot of mussels) and other stuff was delicious but not photogenic (a giant hunk of lamb on top of a giant pile of mashed potatoes that was supposed to be a “stew”). But here’s the awesome breakfast I had at Queen of Tarts:
Some fancy fish and chips:
And Baileys cheesecake. Om nom nom
We checked out the Natural History Museum, aka “Dead Zoo.”
Of course we went to the Guinness Storehouse:
And this made me giggle because I’m immature:
Overall I couldn’t help but notice Dublin bore a remarkable resemblance to Seattle: overcast, raining, not particularly fashionable, and filled with 90’s music. I guess that’s why I liked it so much.
