Dublin was lots of fun. It feels like I was away a lot longer than three days/two nights. It was the first time I’d ever been in a country (other than Australia) whose history was directly relevant to my family’s history. I’m still working out what that means.
We saw the Book of Kells at Trinity College, visited the Guiness Storehouse, where an informative and interesting tour was followed with an informative and interesting pint. The literary pub tour Foo had recommended was really entertaining. We spent Sunday afternoon in the Archaeology and History branch of the National Museum of Ireland.
