let the irish fun begin! 1.0

4 Sep 2012

ok, peeps. here we go. day one in ireland! i must say, this was an unbelievable weekend. u.n.b.e.l.i.e.v.a.b.l.e. the main event of our 5 day trip to the emerald isle was to celebrate the wedding of our two dear friends; but we had a day in dublin before we headed out to the irish countryside for those celebrations. so, here’s a little peek at how we spent our time when we arrived. now you’re gonna see why we looove dublin so much!

ryanair is freaking crazy. you don’t have assigned seats, so you’ve gotta claw your way as close to the front of the line as possible. we’re just waiting here, watching all the anxious people waiting to board a plane to london.

our plane!

ready as we’ll ever be. but, super excited.

all checked into our hotel in the middle of downtown dublin & ready to take on the town.

first things first, now that we’re all together. what time is it? beer-thirty. us: “we’d like to order 3 guinesses, please.” bartender: “we don’t have guinness here. we sell local beer.” us (stunned): “uhhh… well, give us something good…

yep. it was good. so, no guiness yet. but, still, a success.

and there was live irish music. never wrong, ya know. i love it.

we got a little hungry, so we went to a tapas restaurant & went crazy. delish.

ok. what can we get ourselves into now? hmmm… how ’bout a guiness to end our first day in dublin, ireland? sláinte!

now, that’s only the beginning of the pictures from my weekend. you have no idea some of the things that are waiting. tomorrow, i’ll share with y’all what we did on friday. let’s just say it included a road trip into the irish countryside (where we got lost) and a billiard room. check back tomorrow!!

wishing you peace, love, & rainbows.

      Barb, they were Americans. It was an invasion of Americans from Notre Dame during the weekend. It was crazy!

    The Temple pub was so gorgeous, as are the brightly painted doors & cobblestone streets- so much great use of colour there. It all looks (to these Australian/American eyes), like a little fairy-tale book…What a shame about Lina’s fear of flying- I had a GF once who is still like that to this day (only worse- she takes valium just to board!). Ah well, if a hand-squeeze gets her there, that’s all that matters, yeah? You two take care & brilliant photos Liz. 🙂

      Tracy, it is a gorgeous, fairytale kinda place, you’re right. My eyes could barely soak in everything, it was as if I had to inch myself constantly. I feel soooo blessed. Thanks for the compliment! xo

    Dublin looks like a very interesting and beautiful city. I always wanted to check it out, together with the Scottish Highlands. Maybe I’ll roadtrip the two countries at some point in time.

    Mhm, isn’t Guiness Irish? How strange! But seems like you still got it after all. Yeah, what would an Ireland trip be WITHOUT Guiness?!

      PS: I hate Ryanair! See my Ryanair hate post here:

      Always trouble with them when you go to Great Britain, it seems. I flew with them to Austria once, that was fine. People are really crazy trying to fight for the first spot on the plane.

        Hehe! Ryanair… cheap tickets, which is awesome; but soooo much stress.

          …Not sure I want the cheapest plane-ride? You’re in the air, after all?

      Oh, a roadtrip to Ireland & Scotland sounds perfect. I’ll meet you there! Nad we’ll drink tons of Guinness! 😉
