Dublin, Ireland…

April 19, 2009

Dublin CountrysideIn April I visited Dublin, Ireland. Ireland is a beautiful city with a lot to do. We spend the weekend there and stayed at the Days Inn. The hotel was in a good location but not the nicest if you’re looking for luxury. On both days we spend in Dublin, we took the bus tours. The first day we went around the city. Dublin is a very interesting city. We visited Trinity College. It’s a beautiful campus and we saw the Book of Kells which was written by the Monks. We also saw the Guinness Museum, the Dublin Castle, and the Dublin Writer’s Museum. At night there are many bars to jump around to and the people are really friendly and fun. The next day we were there we went to the countryside. We visited a Palace in the country that was situated in a beautiful area. We spent the day there and had lunch overlooking the courtyard. To get to the countryside took a couple of hours but it was definitely worth it. We ate at fun pubs where they played good music although Dublin is definitely not known for its food; it’s still a very good time!
