    Dublin 2.0

    May 18 in Ireland

    Irish beer, that I can remember consuming:
    O'Hara's craft lager
    O'Hara's ale
    Hophouse 13 lager
    Smithwicks
    G
    Yankee White IPA
    Kilkenney lager
    (and at least two that I have forgotten the names)
    (quote for the self-guided pub crawl day "slow and steady wins the race".

    Ireland, like Belgium, has got to be tricky for bartenders/dishwashers. The breweries have a special glass for many of the beers, therefore, lot's of washing, drying and putting back in place. On a busy night at the bar, that must be challenging.Read more

    Cliffs of Moher

    September 14, 2017 in Ireland

    Some more pics of the Cliffs and a few of the drive to Galway. All of the rock walls are so neat. They are everywhere. And the maintenance of everything. People are always cleaning and really taking care of the whole island. The towns are adorable and so full of character.

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    The O'Hurleys storming the castle! T trying to climb the wall! And then slipped on the wet grass right after I took the picture. So in the dungeon he goes! If you lived here you wouldn't need any exercise equipment. The stairs are crazy in this place. Narrow and steep. They put in hand rails but we were trying to imagine no rails and the guards in their armor! Craziness! And Roxy, I want this table for family dinner! 😄Read more

    Slàinte to Dublin!

    September 8, 2016 in Ireland

    Hi guys, it's Rupal! This is my first blog post so let's see how this goes...

    Right now we're on a bus to Galway which is in the west of Ireland to see the more scenic side of the country where we'll spend two days. We woke up at 5:30am this morning to pack our bags and walk to meet the bus which was a bit difficult after a beer and whiskey tour last night! So I guess we say so long to Dublin or Slàinte to Dublin which means cheers in Irish Gaelic.

    OK I need to take a second to get off track because right now our bus driver is singing a song and cracking jokes in the thickest Irish accent while everyone is mostly asleep. I guess he likes to hear himself speak which I'm ok with because the Irish accent is awesome!

    Speaking of accents, yesterday we spent the afternoon in a local pub after a walking tour of the city to rest our legs and hydrate with a pint where we people watched the locals and tried to make sense of what they were saying; which is more difficult than you think!

    It's fun to remove yourself from the situation and think if we weren't in that pub or in Ireland or on this trip the locals we see everyday would be doing the same thing; we just get to witness them in their natural setting and see what their lives are like!

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    What we were watching in the Corn Barn. Plus what Adrienne will eat under peer presure! We had to sit with other people. It was very uncomfortable. The only thing questionable was the salad but I lived! 😄 I had Salmon and T had Lamb Stew 🐑🙁😢

  • Day1

    Kilkeny

    September 11, 2017 in Ireland

    Streets of Kilkeny. We parked and walked to the Castle. The cafes with outside seating had blankets on the chairs to use. Found some charity shops, no treasures yet. Us at a pub. The umbrellas were an entrance to an outside mall. It made me smile! :)

  • Day3

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    We have been here all day! I thought the castle was pretty small and wouldn't take long to look at but the folk park is a village! So walking through the whole thing, going through all the farm houses, visiting with the animals, and look at all the flowers, well, puts us at ALL DAY! 😄 Plus the heavy spiratic showers of rain in which we had to look for cover because we haven't caught on to the spiratic rainfall by day 3 and left the umbrellas in the car! 😂🌂Read more
