We started the day with two plans in mind: get to the bay to see the water and meet up with Jonathon’s cousins before leaving bright and early the next day. We also had a reservation at a speakeasy called Blind Pig that I was *really* excited about. Our last day was everything I expected, and closing out the bars with Jonathon’s cousins was the perfect ending to our Christmas vacation.
On our fourth day I realized just how bad my jet lag was, but we were able to get up and have brunch at Taste Company before going to the Guinness Storehouse and doing the full brewery tour. We had a great time learning how to pour the perfect pint, before meeting Joanthon’s family for tea at Bewley’s, lunch at The Green Hen, and more walking through Dublin. There was then a nap (did I mention my jet lag?) before a gluten free pizza dinner and drinking wine at home while watching TV.
Listen to the the new EP from Wiredogs called Kill The Artist Hype The Trash! They got the name from a funny interaction with Iggy Pop himself.
We *loved* our breakfast yesterday, and considered going there again, but after much deliberation on where to go for breakfast, we decided to venture just down the street to Elephant & Castle after inspecting the menu online and learning that they had a meal with potato cakes (perfect to satisfy our American appetites). Unfortunately the cakes were quite small. Delicious, but small. I had the Omelette with Irish cheese and bacon (which is more like ham here). It was a great meal to fill up on before heading over to Jameson. The walk to Jameson was quick, and warm as we stayed to the North of ...
We got started a bit late on our second day as I was struck with jet lag and was WIDE awake from about 2-6 am after getting into Dublin in the early morning the day before. Jonathon woke up around 9 am, but couldn’t bring himself to wake me, so by the time we got up and moving, it was on the later end of brunch.
We spent the rest of the day walking around and exploring the city, and got to see this amazing sunset over the river!
After traveling all day on Christmas, we arrived in Dublin at 8 am (local time). Jonathon and I rented an apartment during our stay that is located on Cow’s Lane just behind the Arlington Hotel in Temple Bar, Dublin Ireland. Unfortunately we landed on Saint Stephen’s Day, which meant that most places in the city were closed. Luckily jet lag helped us sleep during the day until pubs opened for the day, allowing us to have our first of many Guinnesses during our trip.

I just couldn’t resist sharing this new song, Colors, from one of my longtime favorite singers, Genevieve. She used to be the lead singer of Company of Thieves, whom I’ve had the pleasure of seeing many times.
