A Weekend In Dublin

Dublin has always been a place I have wanted to visit and having friends from uni living in Ireland it seemed only right to book a weekend away with the girls to experience it over the bank holiday weekend - tasting Guinness, listening to Irish folk music in Temple Bar and visiting Kilmainham Gaol.


It is fair to say we spent most of the weekend talking, eating and drinking, which was utterly perfect. It was great to just catch up about our summer holiday and time at home with family. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever laughed that much as I did that weekend! 

A weekend to Dublin isn't complete without a trip to The Guinness Storehouse. That was the first stop we made, it was certainly great to learn how to pull a perfect pint and how to taste test it so you get the best tasting drink so you can reallllllyy appreciate the full flavour.


It is clear we embraced the full tourist vibes by getting multiple photos outside St. Jame's Gate Brewery and Temple Bar! But we also took a bus tour around the city, we got to see as much as possible and our tour guide was honestly the best.  

Ohhhh... did I say that Pope Francis drove past us on when we were stood in O'Connell Street as he made his visit to the city. 


We took a trip to Temple Bar and develled in to there to watch the live Irish music being played and it felt super fancy and traditional – what more could you want?


We had only planned to stay for three days, but managed to squeeze a hell of a lot into the weekend. Most of our time was spent in different pubs where the atmosphere was always buzzing and lively. The one thing I fell in love with, was the Guinness…. I mean I tried it and I tried it again... the first pint was beaut, second not so much but I guess it's a love hate drink!!

On our final day we took a very looooong walk out to Kilmianham Gaol, omg the stories about what happened in their during the riots and rebellions during the Easter Rising in 1916! Walking around the jail and seeing the markings and blood stains on the floor and walls was so surreal seeing it all a century later. 

It is fair to say that the weekend was AMAZINGGGG, spending time with the girls, drinking far too much beer and eating the best breakfasts it was a weekend I will never forget.
