My first time in Dublin did not disappoint. It’s a city I’m considering living in for a year (after my UK visa ends) so it was great to explore the city, catch up with a friend and see how the locals live!
On Saturday morning, I got up relatively early and walked through Phoenix Park, seeing the Wellington Monument and the beautiful gardens with flowers blooming.
Temple Bar is a touristy spot but has a very Irish feel so it’s definitely worth walking through.
I walked around the beautiful St Stephens Green where the flowers were blooming.
For brunch, I walked down to Brother Hubbard. The food was on point!
I then walked up towards Merrion Square and went to the National Gallery of Ireland.
In the afternoon, I met Anthea for the Guinness Storehouse Brewery tour. The tour is self guided, really interactive and you can pour your “perfect pint” and it was super interesting to learn how Guinness is made.
Afterwards, we came back and ordered some fish and chips and relaxed before heading out again.
