Dublin day 1

We got in Dublin at 1 PM and when we took our luggage we went to the parking near the airport.

At 2 pm there came the Van of our hostel that took us to the hostel. We took a 6 dorm room in Paddy’s Palace for 3 nights.

We took this Hostel because they had (I don’t know if they still do) great offer that if you stay in theirs hostels in Dublin or Belfast for at least 2 nights,

you get a one day tour with their travel agency for free. And they also have  free transfer from and to Airport.

That was for me the first time to stay in the hostel.

When we got in our room there was only one guy there from Texas.

It was little weird to sleep with someone else in the room that you don’t know but after a while I got used to it.

Next day came two girls from Germany to our room, and the last night we were alone in the room.

Hostel was ok, not very fancy, but it was pretty clean, we had shared bathroom, there were 2 on our floor and there was no crowd.

Also it was very cheap so I don’t have any complaints on the hostel.

Breakfast was included in price (typical hostel breakfast – toast, tea, butter, jam…)

We left our things in the room, took our camera and went for a walk in the city.

We just wandered around the center for a while and then decided to go for a beer.

Our first beer in Dublin was of course Guinness and we had it in Temple bar in Farringtons pub.

After enjoying the cold pint we went for a walk a little more.

Then I needed to go to bathroom so we got in the next pub, for another beer 😉

There were two guys just preparing to start the gig so we decided to wait and enjoy the music for some time.

There were really great, playing and singing good old songs.

Our best friend has a friend that lives in Dublin, so we decided to meet her for a drink.

She called us when we were in the pub so we told here that we are in Peadar’s Kearneys pub.

She came with her friend from Israel so we had another drink with them and then she wanted to take us in her favorite pub.

So we went to Porterhouse. We talked, enjoyed the music and drink beers of course . It was around 1 AM when we went back to the hostel.

Our friend point us where to go and we went, and we got a little lost.

We have not turned in the right street so we walked by the river hoping to find someone to help us.

After a while there were two guys walking toward us so we asked them for the direction but it didn’t help us much,

then we asked another person and still didn’t find the hostel.

After some time we did find it, we were around it all the time, very close.

I believe we had too much beers that evening . 🙂

We got to our room and went to sleep. That was our first day in Dublin.

    I brought you nearly to your hostel door and you managed to get lost! 🙂

    Glad to see you are blaming it all on beer tasting platters in Porterhouse, that’s exactly what I would do as well!

    Nice reading about your adventures
