Well, I arrived safely in Dublin, Ireland. I truly had the smoothest air travel I have ever experienced on RyanAir. Strangely, customs took all of 2 seconds, and I met Mary really easily. We then took a 30 minute bus ride to the hostel.
Traveling around Dublin, we visited or saw: the Custom House, The Jeannie Johnston Famine Ship, Merrion Square (a park), the National Gallery of Ireland, Trinity College and the Book of Kells (a very interesting place but they don't let you take pictures of the cool library above the musuem), and then stopped at St. Stephen's Green (another park) for lunch. Following lunch we saw the Mansion House, The Molly Malone Statue, Dublin Castle (we didn't go in as it was closing and didn't look to exciting anyway), and St. Patrick's Cathedral.

The Book of Kells sign at Trinity College. This is about as close as you could get to taking a picture of the Book of Kells library.

We found a Hard Rock cafe, but didn't actually go inside. Too much to see!

Dublin Castle, not that interesting by the sound and sight of it. Plus it was expensive.
