"If you're lucky enough to be Irish..

then you're lucky enough". - Irish saying Last weekend we were "lucky enough" to visit Ireland and while it was a beautiful island with warm and friendly people, we couldn't help but get the feeling that given their tumultuous history, the Irish aren't lucky at all! We had a great time though and learned a lot in our short time there. On Saturday we did a walking tour of Dublin, getting our 4 hour fill of exercise AND history. I'm SO thankful that the kids are at the ages that they are, and that they can endure and even enjoy said 4 hour tours! ;) It was an extra treat for Danny and I, as it was our first time there as well AND the sun was abundant, so all of us were giddy. So first up, Dublin proper: These were taken in the Temple Bar area. It reminded me a lot of New Orleans, as there were HUNDREDS of bars (but minus the "cover-the-kids-eyes" establisments. However, during the day, it was fine with the kids and we were able to see where U2 was first discovered and the hotel that they own today. * I must warn you.. if you do decide to go with kids, we ran into trouble finding somewhere to eat after 7pm. unlike the rest of Europe, where in some places, dinner time STARTS at 9 or 10pm!?, most people eat early here.. around 6pm and start drinking after that. So any of the cute/historical gastro pubs, will be closed to minors after 7pm. We ended up having sushi, which was fine, but I thought i'd point it out.
