Today was a LONG day! I didn’t get much sleep on the plane, just isn’t my thing. We landed in Dublin pretty much on time. It was a beautiful sunrise to watch.


We went through immigration and customs to get these delights.


Then we headed to the hotel. Luckily they had a room for us at 9:30 am!! So we took a quick nap, unpacked, showered an went back on the town. We purchased a hop on hop off bus pass so we boarded that an rode it for almost an hour. When we got to the Gaol, our first tour, it had already been booked for the whole day!

So, we jumped in a cab and headed to Guinness Storehouse. It was a really fun afternoon … Store, tour, drinks, food, music. I even got the chance to learn how to poor the perfect pint. Loved it!


Afterwards, we found a store to get a SIM card for our phones and now have unlimited data!! We had some dinner. And now it’s off to an early bed time.

Here’s a photo of the Greening of the city where all major buildings are colored green for the weekend. 🙂


And we miss our pooch!
