#Travelnews #Discoveryofthisisland

Hey to all our travelfriends 🙂

This past week I have been truely enjoying my trip to a country where I have actually never been and which was also never really on my bucket list. But then somehow I got myself into this and I must say, I am surprised how much I liked it!

So the flight took me from Cologne to Dublin, capital of Ireland 🙂

 

I must admit, I didn´t plan a lot and didn´t really know a lot about Ireland, it was more like a very spontanious discovery.

On my first day, I explored Dublin a little, just to get an overview. It is actually not such a big city, there are just many many tourists everywhere 🙂

The Irish are very friendly people except maybe for their busses (they nearly ran me over). As I was travelling with a group, we did a city tour together and our guide was awesome, very Irish looking and singing the whole time 🙂

 

 

Although I thought that the weather must be bad (stereotyp of Ireland), it has been a sunny week, which was even better since we took a short trip to the sea two times!

So what to do in Ireland/ Dublin:

  • city tour (lear about the Irish history and the monuments of Dublin)
  • visit the Guinness store house (participate in a beer tasting)
  • do an Irish dance lesson (and go to try dancing in a pub)
  • go to the Temple bar or any other bar with life music (which you can find everywhere)
  • drink a lot of Guinness (if you like it) or enjoy the atmosphere with an other drink in a pub
  • eat fish and chips (if you are not vegetarian)
  • go hiking in the Wicklow mountains
  • go hiking near the cliffs of moher (if you are at the east cost on the cliffs of Howth)
  • go to the beach (but I wouldn´t recommend swimming cause the water is very cold)
  • visit Trinity college
  • go shopping in some cute small shops
  • enjoy eating/drinking in one of many cute coffee and eating places

So this is list is what I did during my trip and it is a very nice balance between city and country life.

In Dublin I stayed in a hostel (Jacobs Inn) which was pretty good because you can meet a lot of young people from all over the world and also have a lot of space (big eating room, kitchen for everyone to use, relaxing area and roof top).

So now I am back in Germany and soon I´ll be travelling again, in one week actually and you´ll know where my next trip will take me 🙂

Hope you´ll have a great new week and just ask me anything if you have questions about my trip to Ireland 🙂
