    Dublin

    October 8, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    We left the motorhomes at Red Cow parking lot and rode the tram into Dublin. I just love listening to the various Irish accents but often have no idea what they are saying!
    A local lady on the tram pointed us in the direction of the Leprechaun Museum assuring us we would learn lots about Irish
    fairytales. Our story teller was very dramatic and entertaining!
    With trusty google maps Kath lead us to the Guiness Storehouse for the obligatory tour.
    While I am not a Guiness fan, I did find it interesting seeing the process to make this roasted barley, hops and yeast stout.
    Mr Guiness and his wife Olivia started making the brew in 1759. They had 21 children although only 10 survived to carry on the business. It has been exported worldwide for decades and is synonymous with Ireland.
    Heading back out of Dublin we followed the highway towards Galway and stayed at a lakeside pitch at Ballykeeran overnight.

    Guinness and lots of walking

    November 9, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    Slept in a bit, which was nice. Delightful crepes at the Goose on the Loose, followed by a trip to the Guinness store house - also excellent. The food was wonderful and the tour was kind of a self-guide type of deal, so easy and fun. Having eaten too much, we wandered over to the Jameson distillery, but the tours were a long wait - we opted for a drink instead. Stopover at a bar called The Oak followed, where we got to catch some of the Leicester - Arsenal match. Ended the night on a very high note, at the Vintage Cocktail Club and some truly exquisite cocktails and great atmosphere.

    Sunday, we are off to Belfast - but first, to the airport to pick up our car.

    Ein Guinness kommt selten allein

    August 11, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Heute standen eine Kajaktour 🚣‍♂️ durch Dublin auf dem Fluss Liffey, sowie eine Guinness-Verkostung 🍺 auf dem Plan... bei letzterem, haben wir uns deutlich besser geschlagen... 💪😂

    Dublin Days

    January 6, 2020 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    We arrived here in Dublin on Sunday from Copenhagen. Our hotel is located not far from the city centre on the south side. We had arranged to travel out to Navan on Monday to meet up with Narelle and Eamon but as both of us had colds and we feeling pretty tired, we decided to stay in Dublin to get some errands done (including washing) and just have a wander around. Guy went to the Dublinia museum in the afternoon and we had dinner at a pub (The Hairy Lemon) that night where they had a traditional Irish music group playing.
    On Tuesday we had a bit of a self guided walking tour of the city centre, learning a bit of the history of the Irish republic. Due to some rain, we went to the movies in the morning (Star Wars) and then took a tram out to Kilmainham Gaol where many political prisoners were executed and even the former PM of Ireland was once locked up. That evening we had another pub dinner (The Old Storehouse) and some Irish music, this time a ballad singer.
    Wednesday we had booked a bus tour for the day to Glendalough and Kilkenny. It was a wonderful day weather-wise as we had good visibility and no rain. The guide took us to St Kevin’s monastery and then we could walk to Glendalough. After this a farmer gave us a sheep dog demonstration with his border collie Maggie. We drove on via the Wicklow mountains towards Kilkenny. Here we took a guided tour of the castle. After a big day we had a quick dinner in the Temple Bar area and walked home to the hotel.
    Today is Thursday and we will be flying to London at around 1pm.

    A round up of day one

    July 15, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We reached our hotel by 11am, dropped off our bags and went out to see some of the sights of Dublin. First stop was City Hall then onto Dublin Castle where we booked a guided tour for mid-afternoon (which was very interesting). Then we walked to Christchurch Catheral which had a pop-up food village operating within its grounds.
    We had a very tasty lunch at The Larder then walked along the River Liffey in the afternoon, seeing lots of bridges , including Samuel Becketts bridge (see photo), and the Famine Sculpture.
    We had an interesting self-guided tour of the Guinness Storehouse which ended with a pint of the 'ruby red' ale in it's Gravity Bar on the 7th floor with 360 degree views of the city.
    We ate dinner in the Old Storehouse in Temple Bar then listened to live Irish music by 3 chaps, 1 on guitar, 1 on flute and the other on the handheld drum - clapping and singing along were aided by another pint of Guinness!
    We returned to the hotel through the very lively Temple Bar area.

    Day two was a long one!

    July 15, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Fuelled on a full Irish breakfast, we visited St Patrick's Cathedral before taking a stroll around St Stephens Green then looking in the shops along Grafton St. After a slice of delicious cake at quirky Dolce Sicily, we took a guided tour in the Little Museum of Dublin then walked around the Government buildings and Trinity College before returning to the hotel and getting changed for our night at the theatre.
    According to Allison's phone step count we did 24.100 steps today which was marginally up on the 23,600 we managed yesterday.

    Trinity College

    May 21, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Heute haben wir grandioses Wetter. Das Thermometer zeigt 14 Grad, gefühlt sind es aber 20 und die Sonne scheint. Wir haben eine Führung im Trinity College gemacht. Eine der ältesten Universitäten der Welt. Eine Studentin hat uns mit der interessanten Geschichte bekannt gemacht und lustige Anekdoten erzählt. Der Campus ist wirklich schön und im Sommer kann man hier sogar Zimmer mieten. Ist vorgemerkt für die nächste Reise. Danach waren wir in der alten Bibliothek, haben das Book of Kells gesehen und den beeindruckenden Long Room mit 200.000 sehr alten Büchern. Wirklich beeindruckend. Leider haben die Touristenscharen ein wenig das tolle Ambiente geschmälert.Read more

    Last evening in Dublin

    May 21, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Nachdem wir restlos begeistert und vom Winde verweht aus Howth zurückgekehrt waren, sind wir am Liffey entlang geschlendert, um den wundervollen Tag gut ausklingen zu lassen. Da ich unbedingt einen Whiskey probieren wollte (selbstverständlich aus rein medizinischen Gründen gegen meine Erkältung), sind wir danach in den Norsemen Pub eingekehrt, weil wir den am 1. Tag bereits so charmant fanden. Ich liebe die Pubkultur hier, nette und entspannte Leute, Bier, Schnaps und Musik. Wir haben den Teeling von einer Dubliner Destille probiert und waren so begeistert, dass wir gleich einen 2. geordert haben, Alex natürlich nur zur Vorbeugung ;-). Danach sind wir durch die Dämmerung zurück zum Appartement spaziert und waren froh, dass um 22:30 Uhr endlich die Sonne unterging, damit wir guten Gewissens schlafen gehen können. Gute Nacht, schönes Dublin - oíche mhaithRead more
