Exploring my heritage in beautiful and green Ireland was one of my favorite trips ever. Most of the time was doing the "Touristy thing" in Temple Bar, but was able to explore for a few days outside of town.

Local Lunch

Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland

I failed at finding a quality restaurant in town worth raving about but almost anywhere will serve a dish similar to this. Meat and potatoes is the go-to bar food but you can definitely find nicer dining options with a quick walk in town.

Castle's & Courtyards

Christ Church Cathedral, 8 Christchurch Pl, Wood Quay, Dublin, Co. Dublin, Ireland

There are many beautiful castles, churches and historic buildings in the Temple bar area of Dublin. I highly recommend writing down a few necessary stops while in Dublin. Two of my favorite's are the St. Patricks Cathedral and The Christ Church Cathedral. Unfortunately my phone died so i couldn't get any great photo's of the Cathedrals, but I attached two I saw online that represent the Church's well. The Christ Cathedral has a medieval tour guide trip underneath the church where you can explore a cool cave.

Guiness Factory

Pim St, Ushers, Dublin, Ireland

I only had enough time to stop at the Guiness Factory or the Jameson Factory. The local Irishmen told me the Guiness Tour is the better bang for your buck. The tour includes multiple floors or information on how the beer is brewed, how the beer became so popular and of course, a fresh tasting at the top with a great view of Dublin City. I also added a picture of my mom next to the barrel's the beer's shipped in.

Night Life

Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland

There are A LOT of bar's to explore while in Dublin. I heard to go to a few non-touristy bar's but unfortunately I visited during Halloween weekend which, Irish folk take very seriously so I dressed up in costume with everyone else and went bar hopping around town. Every bar will have Guiness and Jameson and every bar will tell you there the first bar in Dublin. I would find out when the local Soccer "Futbol" or Rugby game's are being played and go to the bar's with the most local's in it. Temple Bar is great because you can walk everywhere and if your not feeling one bar, you can walk into the one next door and have a great time.

Trinity Colleg

Trinity College Dublin, College Green, Dublin, Ireland

Trinity College is known for being one of the most beautiful campuses in the world so we had to walk through campus and pretend like we were students. Walking through the courtyard and into the classrooms was very cool with a lot of great artictecture to admire. Stop in the Pavilion Bar on campus to grab a beer during your walk-through.
