Back to Dublin

The Guinness tour

I'd enjoyed my previous trip to Dublin, so upon receiving a new invitation from my friend who lives there, I decided to buy a couple of tickets (for me and my girlfriend) and go visit him and this lovely city for the weekend.
My friend works at the Google office (as do many people in Dublin), so he took us the visit his workplace. These folks really know how to create a great working environment!
We were lucky with the weather, as it was really sunny for 2 out of 3 days we were in Dublin.

The city has many things to offer to its visitors. We went to the National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology (with free entrance), a beautiful building which contains an exhibition of some of Ireland's archaeological treasures and to the Trinity College, where some of the teachers were giving very interesting speeches about what the University has to offer.

A trip to Dublin wouldn't be complete without a proper pint of Guinness. So, we decided to visit St. James Gate, Guinness original brewery and now a big museum. The ticket was quite expensive, but is nice museum if you like Guinness and want to learn a bit more about it (and they give you a "free" pint).

Next day, between shopping and sightseeing, me and my friend went to try a proper pint of Guinness at Mulligan's, one of the city's oldest pubs. Although it was too early in the day, some of the regulars where already arriving for a drink.
In the afternoon, we still had time to take a train to Bray and climb the hill for a short walk, enjoying the nice view.

After returning to Dublin, we went to grab a bite, at one of the Burger places (of course, after another pint of Guinness :) ) and enjoy our last night in Ireland.
