We only spent a day and a half in Dublin but we did a bunch of stuff!
We stayed at a pub/hostel that was a bit grotty but the location was great.
We visited the National Portrait Gallery.
Luke met an American lady who’d come to Dublin just to see this Caravaggio.
Jess went on a Viking bus/boat tour and a walking tour while Luke and I walked around town and then sat in a pub (just for something different). We did see the statue of Molly Malone.
Guess which bit you rub for luck?
Dublin has some shops with funny names. Also people in Ireland really love knitwear.
We also went to a comedy night – there is so much comedy in Dublin! If we’d known we might’ve booked tickets to something decent. As it was we saw three guys in a basement and they were ok. In the same pub there was a ukulele jam happening. People brought ukuleles and were given music books and all played along together. It was funny to watch.
Hrm… actually, we didn’t actually do all that much as there wasn’t much time. We enjoyed Dublin though and were looking forward to another fun ride on the ferry back. We ended up with the same kitchen crew as the way over and they remembered Jess was a vegetarian, which was pretty impressive. We slept a lot better as the sea was not as rough.
Next: driving through the Cotswolds and staying at Makeney Hall.

I an not wait to visit Ireland! Looks like you had a great day and a half! Did you come home with any of that knitwear??? 😂
Ha, I only bought a hat, Jess bought a jumper, a cardigan, a scarf and a hat. There’s so many beautiful things I couldn’t decide!
They really were beautiful! I’ve never seen knit leggings before. 😁
