Since Amber isn't on fb, I'll be doing a few posts from the Ireland trip so she can travel vicariously. =) Ireland. We left Friday am (nov 6) and flew all day/night...
Saturday morning we landed in Dublin & met up with JJ at the airport. We did a whirlwind visit in Dublin-Trinity College & Guinness Brewery. On the 3 1/2- turned-5 hour drive to Doolin in County Clare (where our cottage was) we stopped in Athelone to see Sean's Bar, the oldest bar in Europe. (dating from 600AD) Unfortuantly it didn't serve food. We stuck around a few minutes to hear an amazing trad band and then off to Doolin for food. We got there at what felt akin to 3am but was more like 9 (?).
my irish fam, doing what we did all week. laughing at ourselves.
View from the top of the Guinness Brewery, where some of us poured our own "perfect pint".
Farmhouse stop...John and Sarah used a bathroom in somebody's farmhouse because we couldn't find a store or anything. Highlight! HahaIn my humble opinion, this was the best band of all the ones we heard.
