Dad’s bday! We had a buffet breakfast this morning-mostly English breakfast stuff like eggs and bacon and sausages, there was like irish pudding which wasn’t all that nice but at least it was different. I stuffed myself! Since irish food is rather expensive we decided to have a big breakfast and manage not to have lunch! We drove to the National Botanical Gardens to have a walk around, there were lotsa species of plants there with magnificent greenhouses. We stopped by at the pub opposite a bought pint of Irish lager which was quite sweet, better tasting than yesterday’s Guinness. We then drove to Dun Loaghaire, which was a really nice coastal town! We had trouble pronouncing the name at first, it sounds totally different to the English way of pronouncing it. Then we went to a restaurant within the town with lotsa traditional shops, they had a good 2 course meal offer for 15 euros. There was salmon, pizza, lamb etc. pretty good. was a special birthday meal for daddy.
