So, I’m back. 🙂
It was a week of cold, windy, rainy fun. The Irish really like their pubs as it seems they are always full and not full of the tourists. 😉
I saw the Guinness brewery, the city in all possible ways (we walked it through and through) and visited the lovely villages of Howth and Bray in the larger Dublin bay area.
We also went to Belfast one day.
All in all, I had some great Irish beer (new favorite Galway Hooker) and some great fish and chips in Howth (highly recommend that fishing village) and also visited the only Irish niche perfumery but more on that in the next post.
I’ll leave you now with some photos.

Welcome home, Ines. I’m glad you had such an enjoyable stay – and lovely to see your pictures. Did you go just to visit the country of Ireland itself, or do you also have friends or family that you met there?
That church bar is really cool looking. And fish and chips … mmmm, I’m officially jealous now.
We met with our friends’ daughter who lives there now.
The Church bar was really cool and had great staff working there. Actually, generally speaking, most barmen we came into contact with were great.
Fish and chips were truly delicious.
I want to go to Ireland sooooo bad. Great pictures!!
If you go, prepare to get wet and cold (due to their windy weather). 😉
Love the pic of you. Great outfit and posture!
I’ve never been to Ireland but would love too. Doesn’t Dublin have the youngest population of any city in Europe, or something like that? No wonder the pubs are always full!
Thank you! 🙂
I would certainly think so – about the youngest population, the streets seemed full of young people.
Oh, oh, I missed this report – I have been a bit hijacked by work of late. And you made it to Belfast too, hurrah! Will check back later and catch up properly – it is time for bed now, sadly.
Hope you’re getting enough sleep, especially if you’re swamped with work (says the person who doesn’t). 🙂
Yes, we made it to Belfast – it was a nice trip.
I know that mosaic fish very well, even though it was built long after I left the city. Anyway, I really liked the photos from the Dublin area, especially the one of the church bar and of you on the beach at Bray. Fantastically atmospheric. If you ever go back to the North, I would love to show you around the province – that’s as likely a place to meet as Zagreb maybe. 😉
Oh, and I am afraid that I am not getting nearly enough sleep, because I am trying to have a life outside of work – there’s not enough hours in the day – or the night for that matter! 😉
Any place to meet you is fine with me. 🙂
I’m not getting enough sleep either but I’m working on it. 😉
