four seasons in one day
Guess where we are?! Dublin 🙂 We got a bit of rain, a bit of sun, a bit of breeze and a bit of chill. Sadly we didn’t give ourselves enough time in this great country and only had the 4 or so days here. Definitely on the to-do list again in future!
In our short time, we saw Trinity College, St Patrick’s Cathedral and the Guinness Brewery. We were fortunate to witness the city’s atmosphere during a Gaelic Football game – the city was simply abuzz.
The biggest highlight of our time in Ireland would have been the Wicklow Mountains day tour, which visited Dublin Bay, Dun Laoghaire, Dalkey and Glendalough. We had a fabulous guide who shed light on lots of topics and educated us on a number of things. We had no idea that bodies are buried with legs pointing to the east, or that the altar of churches are placed in the front of the east facing window, or that the door of the Round Tower of Glendalough was found 15 feet off the ground to keep solid base.
One thing we did learn though for ourselves was that it is an expensive city. We had a Thai dinner (nowhere flash) and we played almost $50 for an entree and main which we shared.
