For today's post I thought that I would share with you some pictures of my weekend away in Dublin for my auntie's fortieth. I tried to take pictures of everything including food but I got so excited that I had already eaten half of my food before I took a picture, so there are no pictures of dinner but I will tell you where we ate anyway.
We arrived in Dublin at our hotel at about 11 am. We stayed in The Clayton Hotel in Cardiff Lane, which was quite a central area to everything which was good and it was a really nice hotel. I totally didn't take enough pictures this day but all we did was go shopping and eat out. I highly recommend eating at the Elephant and Castle restaurant in the Temple Bar area as their food was gorgeous! We then also went into a traditional Irish bar and had a few drinks and danced.
We acted like proper tourists on this day. We went to the Guinness Factory and learnt all about how they make it, and then we all got to pour our own pint, (where we got a certificate and everything), and drank it up in the Sky Bar which is a room right at the top of the factory with 360 degree views of Dublin. We then did a long bus tour around Dublin seeing lots of sights such as the Zoo and their old prisons, before jumping off to have dinner at The Mongolian Barbeque which is a self service Asian restaurant which I also highly recommend! We then went back to the hotel, got all dressed up and headed out to Sam's Bar which is a really cool bar which plays old school music mixed in with current tracks and has a really cool vibe.
We flew home on Sunday on the 3 pm flight, and so I didn't take any pictures as all we did was have breakfast and go. My last post was what I bought at the airport though if you're interested (here).
I would highly recommend Dublin as a perfect city break for a weekend away or even longer. I definitely want to go back. Have you ever been to Dublin or live there and do you have any recommendations?
