We decided to hit the road for the weekend in Dublin, a mere 4 hour bus ride away, unfortunately travel plans were hindered by the Gaelic Football Championship and all hotels/hostels were booked for Saturday. Nonetheless we had a great time touring centre city Dublin and enjoying all it had to offer. We opted to take a hop-on hop-off bus tour that turned out to be perfect. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and it was around 70 degrees. The major stops on the day were the Guinness Factory, the Jameson Whiskey factory and Trinity College. All were cool in their own regards. From my limited knowledge of Irish history (soon to be changed) I've gathered that Dublin has been a center for progressive thought throughout its history and this has often led to revolt. And more often than not, revolution is sparked by religious beliefs. Despite a bloody history, Dublin is certainly thriving today and seems to be one of the more expensive cities in Europe. A pint of Guinness, the cheapest and best beer is at least 4 Euro. That's all for now. Hope you enjoy the photos.
