Where I stayed
Trinity College was established in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I and is the most prestigious in Ireland. The college also houses the Book of Kells, which was originally created in the 8th century using calf skin for the pages. It houses four stores from the gospels in the Old Testament from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. We were unable to take photographs of it, but it was quite a scene. After that we toured the old library that houses over 200,000 books and is absolutely amazing
Sean and I attended the Guinness Storehouse and had a lot of fun. The museum leads tourists through the beer's ingredients and history, while allowing tourists a close look of the brewing process. The inside is shaped like a pint glass with exhibits around it and the workers there claim it's the biggest pint glass in the world. The tour also comes with a pint of Guinness that we enjoyed at the top of the museum at the Gravity Bar. This bar overlooks the city of Dublin with a 360 degree view. Too bad it rained when we were up there, but it was still an amazing view.
We all went to dinner tonight and enjoyed some drinks and live music at Fitzpatricks around the corner from our hotel. We walked the streets as well by the river and called it a night. We are sad the trip is coming to a close, but we are ready to come home and see our families. Tomorrow is our last full day here in Ireland and our trip, but we will make the best of it.
