we came home from ireland last night, after spending the past weekend in dublin and at a wedding out in the irish countryside. the trip has been really good, and the wedding was A M A Z I N G. but back to the wedding later on. we’re starting with day one – departure and the first day in dublin. gosh, i love ireland.
liz on the bus on our way to the airport
the “cozy” ryanair plane..
i’m so scared of flying, so i always hold my love’s hand. pretty hard.
our very first stop was starbucks, hehe
we checked in at our hotel which was located right in the temple bar area
the street where the hotel was. dublin was invaded by PLENTY of americans since there was this big american football game between two american collages (with an irish founder). yes, they went to freaking ireland to play the very first game of the season. so american flags were all over the city, as the americans.
beautiful dublin and some shopping…
we went to the bus stop because…
…my brother was arriving in dublin in the evening…
…and we went to a really good pub with many different beers…
they had live music, of course
we were hungry and went to a really good tapas restaurant
and then ended the first day with some guinness at another pub
the next day, friday, we went out in the irish countryside (tipperary) and the amazing wedding celebrations started. but more about that tomorrow!
I have ancestors on my mom’s side who were born in Ireland in the early 1800’s. I have determined I am probably have more UK blood in me than Scandinavian, as even the Broberg/Paulson ancestor married someone named Chapman, so it comes through both of my parents.
