What is your dream vacation? Ireland has been on my list for years. I imagined green countryside, cobblestone streets lined with shops, cheerful locals toasting to life, and rolling green countryside.
Well, I was lucky enough to check Ireland off my “adventure wish list” this month. One of my best friends, Brittany came to visit me in Paris recently, and we decided to take a girls trip to Dublin! The flight from Paris to Dublin is a breeze.
We arrived on a Tuesday afternoon, checked into our adorable Air BnB, located across the street from City Hall (great location!!). First stop, Queen of Tarts, a well-known, quaint and cozy bakery. We stopped in for sandwiches and caffeinated pick me ups! immediately the locals appeared friendly and helpful to tourists. I have to admit after living in France for the last 4 months, hearing the english language buzzing in my ears was exciting.
December in Dublin was chilly! Naturally, we were ready to warm up with a Guinness! We walked to the Guinness Storehouse for the infamous brewery tour, along the way we saw some cool street art, several cathedrals, and a ton of pubs advertising “the best” Irish Coffee!
