It has been almost five years since I was last in Dublin, and G and me had never been there together. So last Sunday we got up (relatively) early and set off. Luckily, the weather was beautiful. Look at those gorgeous cherry blossoms above!
We walked around the gardens at Trinity College, but missed the last entry to see the Book of Kells. I have always wanted to see it, so there will definitely be another trip soon. The gardens alone were beautiful, and I bet whoever owns the pink bike above is a lucky student who gets to attend the old library there every day.
I think one of the main highlight if the day was the epic burger, fries and milkshake combo from Eddie Rockets. If you’re ever in Dublin, you have to go there! It’s a small chain of 1950′s American style diners, with amazing food and a juke box on every table.
And here I am, squinting into the sun and wearing a very bright jacket. Pink seemed to be a theme for the day, judging by these pictures! Only one shopping bag there too, very unusual. I was delighted to find a Tiger shop in Dublin, so had to buy lots of little knick-knacks like key rings and mini art canvasses.
It is great to be a tourist in your own capital city, I’m looking forward to lots more trips to explore it.
