Dublin is the perfect destination for your first oversee’s travel. Other than the stay-focused on the round abouts and the other side of the road brain retrain. It was perfect. With rolling hills and sheep just outside Dublin’s city limits. Our Ireland trip was a celebratory trip for me and my husband after paying off a SBA business loan after ten years and five months.
Ireland was the perfect place to catch our breath and celebrate.
OUR TRIP TO IRELAND
Dublin was like a scene from It’s a Wonderful Life.
Except, in any Dublin pub you are bound to hear a specific swear word used in every part of speech.
But when you add an Irish accent the swear word sounds poetic when used as an adverb, adjective, verb, noun, and preposition. If you know an Irish man or woman (I work with one) or have enjoyed a few Irish guys at a rugby match (my son played rugby in high school) you know that word.
But that word was not offensive with an Irish accent.
We spent the majority of our Ireland trip in Dublin. Walking the Trinity College campus had me on my phone texting my daughter to consider grad school in Dublin and maybe meet a cute Irish boy with an Irish accent. #momstop
Every morning we woke up and found these on the streets.
And, of course, no trip to Ireland would be complete with a little Guinness. We did a self-guided tour which means we sampled when we wanted and on every floor. I think a tour would have been more fun.
Some of you know I have a thing for clocks. These clocks were in the Guinness museum. The details got a little blurry by the 3rd floor.
And, finally, I loved the message on this awning outside a little cafe.
