Ah Dublin….Dublin…..what to say about Dublin? If asked to describe it in one word? Dave says alive Merry Jo says joyful. One may or may not come to Dublin to pub crawl—not that there’s anything wrong with that…….. We have found however to properly immerse yourself into local culture you’ll end up in a few pubs. Our intent was to listen to some good Irish music and indeed t... Read Full Entry

Awww, we miss you guys. This sounds like a very fun trip: "pub, pub, church, pub, pub (there are always two or three pubs outside each church) castle, pub, pub, library, pub, pub, nap. Pub, pub, chocolate shop, pub, pub literary pub crawl, pub, pub, story telling." Great photo btw. Love the idea of a literary pub crawl. ;)

Ireland
It was all we wanted it to be and more! Found several Irish beers that I like so all is good. The literary pub crawl and the story telling were a lot of fun.

Fab holidat!
You lucky ducks to have experienced the book of Kells and Trinity College Library. I love illustrated manuscripts and was dying to see this classic, but there were long lines when I was there in one summer; since I'm allergic to lines, I missed it. How wise to visit in March--your whole holiday sounded like a dream--an anniversary to remember!

Fab time
Indeed it was a nearly perfect trip. No complaints. I can understand being allergic to long lines. March is really a good time to visit. I'm glad we came when we did. No lines for anything.

About
About the only thing you haven't done in Ireland is have an Aussie BBQ in Waterford. A mate of mine started that so I know its real. Sing-a-longs and selfies you excel...but what about Riverdance? Gotta see you doing that!!!

Riverdance
No we didn't get to the Riverdance and didn't know about the BBQ in Waterford or we might have gone to do that. Next time.

Nice shot with the black stuff :)
The pints look really tasty! :) And is it sun I see? You surely came to Dublin at the right time! Loved your daily itinerary also... Just like you said, it's impossible not to visit a few pubs (per day) while in Dublin. I've lived there for 6 years and was planning to come back there once my Asian adventure finished... Plans had changed though... But it sure feels like home still... Loved the atmosphere and the people... So it makes me really happy you both had good time in Dublin! Looking forward to your next blogs. Regards!

It would be great to live in Dublin for 6 years. LOL....yes there was a large golden foreign object in the sky. We enjoy your blogs also and looking forward to reading more.

Drink up
We've got some friends in Seattle who went to an Irish Pub to drink Smithwick's after reading one of our blogs. Maybe you need to grab yourself a pint.

Thanks for the travels through Dublin!
We have wanted to get there but as of yet haven't - will definitely keep it on the list. Isn't it great when you meet local people that "mark up your map" and give you great local knowledge - we so enjoy that & it really does come in handy. Sounds like you definitely picked a great "island" to celebrate your anniversary this year. Good luck in figuring out next year! If you haven't been to the Azores, you might want to check them out!

Always looking for islands
Bob & Janice, glad you enjoyed the blog. Ireland was a perfect location. We'd love to get to the Azores! We will keep them in mind. Local information is always the key to success.

Island Celebrations
What an excellent tradition to celebrate your anniversary! The trip sounds excellent. It certainly makes me want to make my way to Dublin for a pint and a story! Wonderful photos and description, as always.

We loved your blogs from Ireland. This country is also high on our bucket list. But I think we have to wait till Nina can have a beer or two again. The pub tours seem to be too much fun - pub sotry teeling, GREAT! Loved the pics! Thanks for sharing.

Ireland offered more than we expected. It was FUN. I hope Nina will feel better soon and you'll be able to check it out.

Dublin is worth to visit again
Reading your blog from Dublin I realise that we missed a few things when we were in Dublin a few years ago. I guess I have to go back there again some day

Revisit Dublin
Every minute of our month in Ireland was wonderful. I'd love to go back. There is so much to see and to do in Dublin and all the other towns. We loved all the music in pubs.
