The next day in Ireland, we woke up to a pretty nice weather, warm (for Ireland standards) and sunny. We had a very nice Irish breakfast and took our car for a drive to the Malahide castle.
In Dublin, we walked around a whole lot.
We mainly walked the streets and the parks and tried to embrace the whole spirit of the city, which is not difficult.
Back in October, over mid-term break we travelled to Ireland. The plan was simple: rent a car, take a look around the country. However, we ended up spending half of our days in Ireland at a very close friend’s place. We had a lot of fun and we wouldn’t trade it for the world, but we have to go back to see what we missed out on.
Ireland was my very first travel abroad (as in, not Spain or France), it was the first time I ever flew on a plane, I was 14. It was very exciting and I remembered Ireland as being very different and fast paced, and packed with everything a 14 year old might want.
This time, I actually thought it was a really nice quiet place. We still ended up renting a car and drove quite a bit around, the weather was meh (I was there in May, back in the days, and the weather was exactly the same), but it was still very very nice. Ireland has a magic, mysterious aura in its forests that always make me feel like I might be surrounded by mythical creatures — I love it.
So here are a few pics to show off the first few days.
