Throw Back Thursday – Dublin

Dublin was one of the first weekend breaks that I went on with my boyfriend, I had always wanted to go so we went for a long weekend. Dublin is such a fun loving places that It has a great vibe there. I was so excited to go and it lived up to my expectations.
We stayed in a lovely hotel in the middle of temple bar, it was the perfect location for us as we had easy access to all the areas that we wanted to go too. We used one of those city sights buses to travel around Dublin so we could hop on and off when we wanted to explore somewhere.
We visited the Guinness Factory and Kilmainham Gaol. The Guinness factory was more of my boyfriend’s choice whereas Kilmainham Gaol was where I wanted to do. I love anything crime related so getting to explore the old prison was really fascinating. We had a great time at both places.
On an evening we went and explored the local bars and pub and we were surround by so many talented singers and musicians. There is nothing more that I love than listening to live music.
On our last full day we decided to go on a coach trip to Northern Ireland, it was a spare of the moment trip as we had always wanted to go and see the Giants Causeway so even though the journey was quite long we decided it was worth the trip. Seeing the Giants Causeway was amazing and we even got to see the Dark Hedges from Game of Thrones on the way as well.
Dublin is one of my favourite places that I have visited purely because the energy there is amazing. There is so much to do and see and there is live music around every corner.

  1. Good afternoon and thanks for this nice article. What a pity that you didn’t visit anything related to James Joyce and his “Ulysses.” Next time, maybe. Un baccione. Arrivederci!
