Trip! Dublin

From Ibiza we headed over to Ireland! Ireland is especially dear to me. While i’m a bit of a mutt (and proud of it) my family connects most closely with our Irish heritage and upbringing. Our family on my Dad’s side (via my Oma/Grandmother) originates from County Cork. For this trip we stayed in Dublin solely but we do plan on returning for County Cork and Galway. :3

We struck up many random conversations in Ireland. I’m introverted by nature but everyone we encountered was beyond charming and lovingly quirky and I couldn’t help engaging any chance we got.  In these conversations Seth seemed to have fun informing people that my family comes from County Cork and the reaction was almost always the same, “Aaah, where the rebels and freedom fighters are from.”  Seth: “Makes sense!”  >:D

We used Airbnb for Dublin and stayed at the apartment of a college student who was returning home to the states to visit her family. Here’s the exterior on James Joyce Street…

At the Jameson Distillery you can get a flight of their different whiskeys. I had no idea at the time they had such variety!
