During my semester abroad, I traveled with a group of friends to Dublin to celebrate St. Patrick's day and explore the city!

Dinner at Fade Street Social

Fade Street Social Restaurant, Fade Street, Ireland

We went for a late tapas dinner at Fade Street Social - The Gastro Bar when we arrived in Dublin Thursday night. The menu was filled with delicious, creative, and flavorful tapas and a great wine selection. It was a slightly more expensive meal than the typical abroad meal, but the food and the atmosphere made it all worth it! Added bonus was the exposed brick walls.

St. Patrick's day festivities in Temple Bar

The Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland

Friday morning we woke up, decked ourselves out in as much green as possible, and bar hopped in the Temple Bar area, visiting all the famous Dublin pubs, drinking Guinness Beer, and enjoying the live music and energy of the city!

Day trip to Cliffs of Moher

Cliffs of Moher, Clare, Ireland

Saturday we woke up early to go on a day trip to visit the Cliffs of Moher. We used a tour company that organized a day trip to visit this "8th Wonder of the World", just 3 hours away from Dublin. After visiting the cliffs, we went to the nearby town of Galway, a small but authentic town with fun shops and restaurants. After this we headed back to Dublin and were dropped off right where our day started.

Dinner at Pitt Bros BBQ

Pitt Bros, Dublin, Ireland

Delicious BBQ dinner at a restaurant with great vibes and great food. This restaurant is in the heart of the city and was very easy to get to.

Wandering around Dublin

St Stephen's Green, Saint Stephen's Green, Ireland

Before we flew out of Dublin, we spent Sunday wandering around the city shopping, eating, and enjoying live street performances. We also walked around St. Stephen's Green, a beautiful park right in the city.

Airbnb (5 min walk from Temple Bar)

Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland

If your planning on going to Dublin for St. Patricks Day, stay as close to the Temple Bar area as possible. The area gets very crowded because it is blocked off from cars for the parade, and will be very hard to get to by taxi or Uber.
