    Dublin

    September 12, 2017 in Ireland

    Getting ready to take the Guinness Tour. We weren't sure if we were on the right train and this lovely lady, Sheila, helped us. She said she would take us all the way to Guinness if she wasn't meeting a friend! Everybody is so nice! Guinness horses!🐴 This is Molly 🤗

    Dublin Day 2

    October 4, 2017 in Ireland

    Spent the day exploring. Headed off to the Guinness Factory for a tour. Spent a few hours there. going through the distillary building. Great tour. From here we caught the hop on hop off bus and traveled around for a bit on it. We got of at Trinity College as we wanted to look at the old harp and the book of kells. The place was packed with people but mostly uni students and it was like a mad house so we didn't hang around. From here we walked up the road a bit and came across Molly Malones statue. Onwards from here we headed to Dublin castle which has the State rooms open for viewing. Very interesting place and they even went to details about the make up that the woman would wear that contained lead. Needless to say they did not live long as they died from lead posioning. They had lead in the white powder that was used to colour the hair white to. The price of vanity and status. From the castle we went up past St Patricks church to Teillings Distillary were we did a wisky tourn. This was good to and Clint got to have my share of the wisky so he had a double helping. The road we travelled along to get to and from the distillary was fantastic. Its a place I would enjoy living in i reckon. For dinner we went up to Dublin's oldest pub, the Brazen Head. It was established in 1198. We had the Irish Stew which was delicious and we struggled to eat it all. Weather was lovely today. No rain and the temp was around 11 degrees.Read more

    Y'all, We're going to Georgia.

    June 25, 2016 in Ireland

    A little recap about what happened last night... We met our friend at the Woolshed for karaoke night. The pub enjoyed that we were Canadians, but the Dj unfortunately would not let us sing Shania Twain, but Michael Buble was a song that was chosen. He told us he threw out our paper suggestions and would rather shoot his head off. It was about 1:30 am and the bar was closing. It was then we found out that the bars during the week close at any fecking time. Yes, fecking is a term that is used frequently here and highly accepted.

    After which Breanna, Tay, and I continued walking the streets of Dublin searching for a bar that was actually open. On the way, Bree had the urge to buy Vaseline because her lips were falling off. While we waited for her, we ran into someone from Jersey. Being a local, we guided our new friend, Gavin, to the bar his brother was at. PYGMALION bar was the only bar open at 2 am and we jumped on the opportunity...... unlike home, we were rejected from the bar. May I point out that we still got beer (Canadians still do it best).

    We ensured all got back to their hotels safely after wandering the streets of Dublin for a few hours. We finally headed to the hostel at 4:30 am. We were greeted by the singing of the birds, and probably laughing so hard that our laughter woke everyone up. Yup, we of course we're having a blast (montreal style -sorry Bree).

    After a wonderful 3 hours of sleep, BEEP BEEP BEEP. We were up, slightly disoriented, for our free breakfast. We quickly packed and got ready to walk to the Guinness Storehouse, in the on and off pouring rain. Once there we learned about the ingredients, the way it's brewed, how to drink it and how to pour it. We are all now certified Guinness pourers- we'll pour your next one for you. We got to enjoy the galaxy bar where you get a 360 view of Dublin City. Incredibly breath taking.

    Leaving Guinness Storehouse we took a wrong turn somewhere. We got to experience some local areas of Dublin (while also trying to be the locals we think we are). It wasn't until we asked a group of Irishman where to go. Ricardo not knowing the difference between the river and the canal, almost brought us further from our destination.

    We then went for lunch the 5 of us. We're sad to say we're leaving Ireland to tomorrow, due to such a beautiful culture and to the wonderful new friends we made. We're off to Georgia next, y'all.

    It's Guinness Time

    June 14 in Ireland

    Da wir in den letzten Tagen schon diverse Marathons gelaufen sind, haben wir uns dazu entschieden heute eine Hop-on/Hop-off Bus Tour zu machen. Unsere erste Station war eine, die dem Aviva-Stadium am nächsten ist. Als wir dann nach ca. 2km Fußweg (wir wollten ja nicht so viel laufen 😂😂) dort ankamen, mussten wir feststellen, dass das Stadion ab heute für zwei Wochen geschlossen ist und keine Touren stattfinden. Also sind wir die 2km wieder zurück zur Bushaltestelle gegangen. Nächste Station: Dublin Castle.
    Das hatten wir irgendwie spektakulärer in Erinnerung. Aber war es nicht. Deswegen waren wir auch nur 5 Minuten da und sind dann mit dem nächsten Bus zum Guinness Storehouse gefahren. Das Paradies auf Erden. Zumindest für mich 😂😂
    Es ist immer wieder schön hier. Ich war nun zum dritten Mal hier und ich hab das Gefühl es ist jedes Mal ein bisschen anders gewesen. Aber immer schön.
    Danach hatten wir extremen, also wirklich ganz extremen Hunger. Das erste Pub, was wir uns ausgesucht hatten, hatte leider nichts für unsere verwöhnten Gaumen im Angebot. Also sind wir weiter und haben eine tolle Pizzeria in Temple Bar gefunden.
    Frisch gestärkt haben wir dann noch die restliche Bustour bis zurück zur O‘Connell Street gemacht. Die Damen mussten dann noch Souvenirs kaufen und weil das hungrig macht, gabs danach noch ein Eis 😃😃✌️

    Dublin City Tour

    July 3 in Ireland

    Heute wollten wir bei Guiness vorbeischauen. Petra meinte das wäre nicht weit. Da laufen wir...
    Nach ner knappen Stunde waren wir dann am Guiness Storehouse angekommen. Die Menschenmassen vor dem Eingang und auch die 25€ Eintritt pro Person haben unsere Begeisterung ordentlich gedämpft. Daher mit dem nächsten Taxi und zur O‘Connell Brigde.

    Dann noch nen Souvenirladen leergekauft und anschließend in ‚The Oval Bar‘ erstmal bei Guiness und Smithwicks erholt. War erst 1/2 Drei 🍻😉.

    Auf dem Weg war ja noch Murrays Pub. Für die letzten Meter musste Smithwicks Red Ale uns noch etwas Kraft spenden.

    Vom Hoteleingang bis zum Aufzug hat wieder ein Guiness für den Endspurt gesorgt. Das wars dann auch...

    Dublin pt2

    May 27, 2017 in Ireland

    Das schöne Wetter hat uns leider verlassen. Es regnet wie aus Eimern. Auf dem Weg zum Guinness Storehouse sind wir ganz schön nass geworden. Aber das gute ist: Ab 1700 soll es in Slane nicht mehr regnen. Wir sind gespannt.

    Guiness store House

    May 24, 2017 in Ireland

    Wenn man Dublin besucht muss man - als Guiness Liebhaber erst recht - ins Guiness Store House. Gesagt, getan.
    Naja, es glich einer Massenabfertigung und so haben wir uns mit einer Masse an Menschen über 7 Stockwerke drücken lassen um die Geschichte und Gegenwart der Guiness Brauerei zu erfahren. Highlight war die Panorama Bar ganz oben, in der wir ein Guiness mit herrlichen Ausblick über die Stadt geniessen konnten :)Read more
