There were too many to keep track, in all honesty. I saw this gate and took a picture. Once we turned the corner, we read that it was the oldest Medieval church left.
After getting lost for another hour with a crappy street map that didn’t make sense, we finally stumbled into St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
It was at this point that I was sick of walking all over the place, we’d been walking for about five hours including Guinness, so I talked Bob into riding a double decker bus for the rest of the afternoon. This was the most brilliant idea, if only we’d done it sooner. You can get on and off the bus, all over the city, all day at each of the sites we wanted to see.
I have pictures of all of those other sites, too. But I’m actually too lazy to upload and label them at this time.
Lunch was spent at a little pub on a corner near our hotel, where we stuffed our faces on Beef & Guinness stew, the other stew was called Irish stew with cubes of beef, and then we ate an entire plate of Irish cheeses- blue, goat, and brie.
We spent the evening walking around and shopping, but weren’t starving for dinner. We caught a glimpse of the Bills game on a tv at the pub outside of our hotel, so we sat down to watch. We split a fish and chips (guess who ordered that) and mushroom soup.
Dublin was great and a lot of fun, but two days was perfect. I really loved the Westbury Hotel, I can’t imagine there’s a hotel with a better location. It was clean, modern and beautiful. Not to mention the full Irish breakfasts served in the morning were amazing. Bob and I were both addicted to their brown bread toast.
