trapt in Dublin by the Irish Sea, things could be worse...

Left work on Friday and switched a train four times, got on a ferry with a crazy old Irishman, and found my friends at our hostile with little direction. Time to squeeze in a whole city in a day with no sleep! This included visiting a fishing town, an old pagan hill where you can see all of Ireland, a castle, and some pubs. Sunday included trekking to the Guiness factory (but not touring it because we were scarred we would miss the ferry back) and then spending a wonderful evening in some fine bus stops and ferry stations. lol Cheers!

fresh fish and chips and Irish cider

tasty desserts!
At pub #1 cider and Guiness

pub #2 Kilkenny's and cider
Bulmers is Irish Cider and the advertisements for it say which side are you on: North Cider or South Cider

Finally found a legit Irish pub complete with live Irish music! And of course more Guiness

switching to Cider

Irish music!
Hauling all our luggage to Guiness the next morning

yay finally there!

Guiness being made inside the vats! 

On our way home! ...or so we thought...
Oh no! Stuck at the docks :(

everyone was so envious of my comfy sweats

Finally on the ferry, so close yet so far to London
Good thing there was a bar, chocolate, and food on the ferry

Irish Sea, I hate you!
