... so we were fortified for the next leg of our trip.
The next stop was Kilmainham Gaol, a historic point in Ireland's fight for independence. Unfortunately, there was a waiting line (in the rain, of course) of an hour and a half for the next tour so we decided to move on and revisit the Gaol tomorrow morning. Next stop--the Jameson Distillery. No kidding. It was turning into a very tipsy day!
... things are going pretty good here in Dublin there is still no place I would rather be than home right now. Today is Emily's graduation party, I'm very glad I got down to Towson to see the ceremony but I would really like to see all the family, at our house. The most important thing I can do is stay positive. This will be the experience of a lifetime and a once in a lifetime opportunity. Never again will I be free ...

I carried my gear to the Glenomena residence office and waited there with a Norwegian when we realised it was closed we didn't know what to do.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBotanic View B & B Dublin
This B&B was a 10 minute bus ride outside of downtown Dublin, meaning it was quiet! The best thing about the B&B was the hosts - Bernie and PJ. We were welcomed on arrival with tea and were given a made to order hearty Irish breakfast each morning accompanied by smiles, stories and helpful tips and advice about where to go and what to see.
