We got a late start this morning. After a lazy morning we walked down to Trinity College where we caught the Hop On Hop Off bus and headed to the Guiness Storehouse. It is a museum inside a multi-storied glass atrium on the site of the old fermintation plant. You do not get to tour the working brewery.

... We visited the Jameson and Guinness factories which were very cool even though I'm not into either! We got to taste both drinks and at the Guinness factory we were even taught how to perfectly pour a pint of Guinness. We went to a pub/bar called The Globe on Saturday night. It was an older crowd of people but we had tons of fun!
Sunday, we packed up all ...
