The weather was beautiful (well according to Stu & I, this is bliss!), it was a balmy 2.deg C, It was the bank holiday public holiday in Dublin, so all the locals were out in force which made for a manic shopping experience. Of course we managed to spend. We eventually had to stop, our poor flight ravaged swollen feet needed to rest, so there followed a 20 min walk back to our hotel (I'm sure it was only a 10 min. walk to the shops) and an hour of R&R in our rooms before we met up again for dinner.
Unfortunately, none of us had it in us to venture any further than the hotel restaurant, so we're still ignorant of what gastronomic delights Dublin has to offer, so the Terrace Bar & Grill it is. We had a lovely dinner - I started what I beleive will become a 7 week habit of Soup of the Day, followed by salt cured salmon, which was just wonderful & Stu had what I estimate to be a 1.5kg hamburger, which he couldn't finish no matter how hard he tried.
We skipped dessert, because by this stage, we'd been hit with the "OMG, I have to sleep" stick and were at risk of falling asleep in our seats, so it was off for an early night.
We needed to sleep because we had more shopping to do the next day, which is also to be the start of our Trafalgar Irish Highlights Tour. Off to the land on nod :)
