With our upcoming trip departure a mere 4 months away, I have been frantically researching things to do and what to see on the different parts of our trip.
Stop #2 on our trip will take us to Dublin, Ireland.
Fun Fact: Dublin or “Dubh Linn” is an Old Irish Gaelic phrase that translates to “Black Pool”.
We will be driving (may result in a missing hubcap and a few paint transfers) up to Dublin from Killarney. Considering we make it there unscathed, we will be checking in at the Parliament Hotel, just steps away from Christ Church Cathedral. With only 3 full days to take in this city (we will be arriving the 11th and flying out to Edinburgh, Scotland on the 15th), we’re having an incredibly hard time picking and choosing what to do.
The absolute must-see on my list is the Cliffs of Moher. This will involve a day trip out of the city, leaving us with 2-full days to cram everything else in. As much as I am hoping we have time to do this, I’m not going to hold my breath.
To no surprise, the must-do at the top of Brady’s list is tour the Guinness Storehouse. The man likes his dark, stout, gross (in my own opinion) Guinness. Reservation – check!
Fun Fact: Ten-million glasses of Guinness are produced daily throughout the world.
What other sights have weaseled their way onto our list? Dublin Castle, Ha’penny Bridge, Merrion Square, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral, Famine Sculptures, Oscar Wilde’s house, Dublin Spire, Temple Bar District, Trinity College.
Of course, we are open to any suggestions y’all have to offer! I have read countless blogs on things to do in Dublin, but it’s just not the same as coming from the horse’s mouth!
So, with that said, what are your favorite things to see/do/eat in Dublin?
