    The Brazen Head - Dublins ältester Pub

    June 9, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    So, nun sollten wir etwas essen. Auf dem Weg vom Guinness Storehouse sind wir etwas vom Weg abgekommen. Finally arrived, ergattern wir einen Tisch in einem kleinen Raum, der wie Mamas Wohnzimmer wirkt. Irish Stews und frisch Gezapftes lässt uns den Tourinepp von Brauerei schnell vergessen.Read more

    Christ Church Cathedral - Dublin Castle

    August 22, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Christ Church Cathedral ist Dublins ältestes Gebäude und mehr als 1000 Jahre alt. Neben ihrer ansprechenden Architektur und den außergewöhnlichen Bodenfliesen ist sie bekannt für ihre Krypta aus dem 12. Jahrhundert.

    Die Cathedrale wurde in den Jahren ihres Bestehens wichtiger Zeitzeuge der unterschiedlichsten geschichtlichen Entwicklungen. 1487 wurde in ihr König Edward VI. gekrönt, heute beherbergt die Krypta eine nennenswerte Ausstellung an Schätzen und Überbleibseln alter Zeiten. Auch als Filmkulisse musste sie schon für große Filme herhalten.

    Von der Kathedrale aus gehen wir in Richtung Dublin Castle, aber nicht ohne an der südlich der Cathedrale gelegenen Visualisierung einer alten Wikingersiedlung vorbeizugehen. Da in Dublin sehr viele Relikte der Vergangenheit gefunden werden, können nicht alle ausgegraben und ausgestellt werden. Daher hat man sich hier entschieden, mittels Markierungen im Boden das Gefundene zu visualisieren.

    Von hier aus gehen wir zurück zu Dublin Castle. das Schloss nicht von innen, verschaffen uns aber über den oberen und unteren Hof einen Eindruck von diesem Gebäude. Da die Essenszeit mittlerweile herangerückt ist, beschließen wir hier auch unseren kurzen Rundgang.

    The Motherland

    June 21, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After an easy 6 and a half hour flight with more then half the plane empty, we have arrived in Ireland --- I am already in love.

    We waited for about 10 minutes at the wrong baggage claim (hehe). Once we wondered a little, we found the right baggage claim, we got all our bags safely :)

    We navigated to find the 747 bus to Dublin City Center. After a 25 minute bus ride and the whole time trying to understand how they drive on the other side of the RIDICOUSLY narrow streets, we are at our hostel!!

    We are currently waiting for our room to be ready to check in before we head out towards Trinity College.

    Christchurch, Dublin

    September 7, 2015 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Christchurch is the largest Protestant church in Dublin. It is an Irish Episcopal Church, part of the worldwide Anglican communion. The first presentation of Handel's Messiah took place in an auditorium across the street, which no longer exists. Underneath the church are remains of a previous building, and several historical and archaeological displays. One shows a gospel book that comes from the early medieval period.Read more

    May 16, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    This might come as a shock but I really don't think I have even had a Guinness before, a Black and Tan, yes, but not a straight pint of the G. I visited the brewery today and I was completely blown away. Magnificent, educational, they did a fabulous job with all of it. Heaps of staff to help you through the beer journey. I even got emotional as I was watching vintage footage of a "cooper" (now I know what that is) making a barrel by hand, yes, you heard me right, emotional! Then came the taste test and learned how to drink this stuff! You first inhale and hold your breath, take a gulp of beer, hold it in your mouth a few seconds, then swallow it while you exhale. This allows you to taste the flavors in all of the different areas in your mouth, and it really worked! Then on to the finale, on the 7th floor, you were given your reward after the tour with a pint of the black stuff at the Gravity Bar, with a 360 degree view of the city. It was happening in the there!

    I then went from drinking, to church. St. Patrick's Cathedral (1192!) was having an Evensong, the members of the church chorus sing the mass, if you will. Got emotional there too, natch. Jonathan Swift (Gulliver's Travels, 1726!) was dean there for 32 years and is buried there also. On his grave in the nave, his self-penned epitaph reads "He lies where furious indignation can no longer rend his heart". Heavy.

    Grafton Street

    June 21, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    After being amazed by the Book of Kells, we headed over to Grafton Street (the shopping district) to spend a little bit of our money. To be honest, most of the atorea were a little more on the high end and out of our budget, but we did manage to find an amazing jewellery store owned by a third generation Irish family who designed many of the pieces themselves. I picked up a cute ring and necklace, and Shaunessa & Taylor grabbed a ring each themselves.Read more

    The Temple Bar

    June 21, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After grabbing a quick bite of some amazing fresh cod and chips at the famous Leo Burdock's (yes, snoop dog has eaten here), our last stop of the day was the famous Temple Bar. One of the oldest bars in Ireland (founded in 1840) and home of some famous irish bot brewed whiskey.

    We listened to traditional irish music while drinking some Irish beer (breanna was daring enough to drink some whiskey on the rocks).
