Dublin; April 2018 πŸ»πŸ€

I booked flights to Dublin way back in July for Sam as a present. He does a lot for me so I thought it was my turn to treat him πŸ’πŸ½ the flights were with British airways which was a treat as we normally have a budget airline! The hotel we booked on booking.com but the reviews seemed good & it was in the city centre. It was comfy & did the job! If you’re wanting a place to stay we stayed at Academy Plaza & it was Β£235 for 3 nights πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

Monday; when we arrived we decided to unpack & have a drink at the hotel to just chill as travelling is quite tiring. I had a couple of mixers & of course Sam had Guinness. When in Dublin & everything hey πŸ˜‚

We then got ourselves cleaned up & went exploring. We stopped for food at a place called Mexico to Rome. We really rushed this & it really wasn’t anything special! I had fish & chips & Sam demolished his fajitas! 

We walked across the road to the temple bar after this, a place I am sure everyone has heard of. The drinks were stupidly overpriced but the atmosphere was brilliant. It’s a place you really have to go to though as it shows how the Irish live πŸ’πŸ½πŸ»


Tuesday; this was an early start & jam packed day! We had booked to go to Kilmainham Gaol & it didn’t disappoint. I find this kind of stuff really interesting. We had breakfast nearby at a little cafe called lime tree cafe & it was so yum… Plus look how healthy it was. 


When we came out of the gaol it was bucketing it down so we got an uber back to the centre! 


We then went to the Jameson factory… As you do when neither of you really like whiskey πŸ˜‚ but I did try them all & sort of enjoyed my drink at the end πŸ™ˆ this was then followed by a trip to the Guinness factory… Not my kind of drink but Sam loves it πŸ’πŸ½ so he had 1 & 1/2 pints 🍻 


My legs honestly ached so much after all of this but we got back to the hotel, got changed & went out for our dinner! We ate at a place called bagots Hutton – look at that handsome man I got to stare at 😍😍 I had bruschetta, followed by a mushroom pasta πŸ˜‹

Wednesday; we got up & gymmed first before going out for a wander. We stopped for a quick snacky breakfast at the shopping centre first though… Our lives revolve around food I swear. We literally just walked for hours, browsing in some shops & just sightseeing before having some lunch at a place called Alfie’s. If you know me you’ll know why I wanted to visit here… Nothing to do with the dog, nooo πŸ™„  but the food & cocktails were yum & very well priced.


We then popped to tesco nearby & got a bottle of wine & drank that whilst getting ready for dinner that evening. We ate at Bar Italia this time & I think this was the best place we ate at. I did have bruschetta again, but it is my fav! We had some good drinks & sat & chatted for hours! I love having a bit of time just me & Sam. 


Thursday; we went & got supplies from tesco before coming back to have a quick gym session before getting ready to come home πŸ˜” 

I have to say the transport was brilliant we got a bus from outside the hotel to & from the airport for 12€ what a bargain! I loved getting away & doing some exploring. But I am ready to chill now πŸ˜‚ 

Has anybody else ever been to dublin?

  1. I love Dublin, I went for the first time in the Summer and it was so much fun. We went to the Jameson Distillery even though none of us liked whiskey as well, it was interesting but we hated the tasting and didn’t enjoy the whiskey at all ahaha. I am glad yous had a great trip X
