Dublin...

Having barely recovered from the previous night's partying we rather gingerly made our way into town yesterday to join Helen on the Dublin Bus City Tour. And let me tell you there is no better way to clear the head than sitting on a a windy open-top bus.

The bus tour itself was great. A suitably witty local tour guide talked us through the history of Dublin including Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Kilmainham Gaol and dropped us off at the highlight of the trip, the Guinness Storehouse for a queue-jumping tour. Word to the wise, book online to walk to the front of the hour long line - even if you book the tickets in the queue like we did! The Guinness 'Experience' was fine; the free pint in the Gravity Bar on the seventh floor being the best bit though.

We then rejoined the bus tour to be dropped off in town. There we had a bite to eat before meeting Jenny in John Kehoe's for a pint or three.

Today we are just packing up and getting ready to head off to Dublin airport. Jenny has very kindly offered to give us a lift.

Dublin is a lovely city and well worth a visit. In fact all of Ireland is a great holiday destination. We've had to pack in a lot in the last week as there was just so much to see. My liver could do with a rest though!
