So after running around the UK for a few weeks, i head over to Ireland for 10 days. I liked Dublin as soon as i arrived. I stayed in the funky, but expansive Temple Bar area. I set off around the south of Ireland on a 3 day Paddywagon tour and saw Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Blairney Castle, Killarney and heaps of amazing little towns and country side. Our guide was very jolly and filled us in on heaps of history about the land and the politics of Ireland. When I got back to Dublin i set about chasing up some of my family history. It was a big task and i didn't get much done in the time i had, but it was great to see some of my ancestors history recorded. I went down to the county of Wiklow for the day and saw some amazing scenery. I also saw Dublin Castle, the Natural History Museum and St Patrick's Cathedral. I spent the weekend with a friend who is living in Dublin, which involved lots of drinking and shopping. Then I made my way back to London...
