Weekend In Dublin!

So last weekend, myself and five friends spent our weekend in the beautiful city of Dublin! Celebrating a friends birthday in one of the happiest, friendliest places on the planet! It’s only right that when you take a trip to Dublin you do the ‘typical touristy’ things, including Temple Bar, Kilmainham Gaol and of course the Guiness Factory! I decided that I would share some of my pictures from the amazing weekend spent in the Capital of Ireland!

 

Temple Bar!

Kilmainham Gaol Museum

Thus the opening and closing of the Gaol more or less coincided with the making and breaking of the Union between Great Britain and Ireland. During the intervening years the Gaol functioned like a political seismograph, recording most of the significant tremors in the often turbulent relations between the two countries. At the epicentre of these relations lay the Irish aspiration to political independence, setting off shockwaves of varying force throughout the nineteenth century and reaching a climax in the years 1916-22. There can be few places, therefore, that more intensely crystallize the forces that shaped modern Irish nationalism than Kilmainham Gaol.

Guinness Storehouse!

Located in the heart of the St. James’s Gate Brewery, the Guinness Storehouse® is Ireland’s most popular tourist attraction. It’s the home of the Black Stuff, the heart of Dublin and an unforgettable start to your Irish adventure. The journey begins at the bottom of the world’s largest pint glass and continues up through seven floors filled with interactive experiences that fuse our long brewing heritage with Ireland’s rich history. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with a pint of perfection in our world-famous rooftop Gravity Bar. Now that’s our kind of higher education.

    It looks like an amazing place – I really have to visit Ireland at some point, considering it is so close.
