Dublin Part one...

Last week hubby and I popped over to Dublin for a few days, as Steven was away for the week with school to Butlins...

It rained nearly the whole time we were there, but it was still a nice break, not exactly relaxing, more fun... We stayed in a place called Rathmines, which was north of the River Liffy, I just love the locks, it reminded me of a holiday we did years ago on the Norfolk boards in a narrow boat,....


We did a tour round Dublin and visited the Guinness Storehouse, which we found very interesting, especially the pint of Guinness you get given at the end of the tour...


trouble is after a pint, it goes to my head...


We visited Howth by train, where we had a portion of chips (and a hot cup of coffee, lol) while walking round the sea wall, it was wet and windy, but lovely seeing all the fishing boats... also hubby nearly stood in the footprints of King George IV who was there in 12th August 1821...


oh and we liked the look of the lighthouse so much that we decided to walk round to it...


but the wind started picking up by then so.....

part two to follow....
