I finally made it Ireland! For 4 days and 3 nights I spent my time in the Green Isle, and I only wish I could have stayed for another week to see more. Wednesday I flew into Dublin and within an hour or so I was checked into my hostel and set off to see the city. That afternoon was able to see a good portion of the city, north of the river Liffey on O'Connell Street, and south of the Liffey through Temple Bar, Trinity College, Grafton Street and St. Stephen's Green. By dark I had found my way back to my hostel and fell right to sleep.
I decided to have lunch at The Temple Bar. I got there just in time too, I was able to enjoy my sandwich to some live Irish music. The guy playing was very good, so I decided to get a drink and stay to listen to him play. Two hours and one strong Baileys and coffee later, I made my way back out to the city. I stopped at a small pub for dinner, a huge bowl of Irish stew, which was delicious.
Friday morning I was up before the sun and was off on a day tour to the Cliffs of Moher. On our drive up, we stopped in Limerick to see the famous treaty stone, St. Johns Castle, and the river Shannon. We then made our way through the Burren, and made a quick stop in Galway Bay for pictures. By this time, it was about half past noon, and we made a stop in the small town of Doolin for lunch. After lunch, it was time for the main attraction, the Cliffs of Moher.
