Luck of the Irish!

Neil Conway, our Irish jeweler and friend!
The weekend of March 10th-March 13th a few friends and I went across the Channel and over the Irish sea to take a weekend trip to Dublin, Ireland!

We had such a great weekend. Dublin is such a different city than Paris. It's smaller so it feels so much more hometown compared to the sometimes gigantic Paris :) The best part was Lexi and I got to hang out with two of our best friends with our new Paris friends! It made the trip so much more fun to be able to enjoy it with good friends and have some tour guides show us around.

We literally packed as much as possible in 3 days. Lexi and I stayed with our two friends and our other two friends stayed at a local hostel. Lexi and I stayed up until 4 am for a much needed catch up session with our good friends and then Friday took on Dublin.

Breath taking view of Irish coast :)
We saw JFK's favorite pub, Trinity College, attended a book fair at Trinity College, had real Bangers and Mash and Irish stew, bought real Irish Claddagh rings from an Irishman, had Irish Coffee, sips of Guiness ,and Bulmer's Cider. What a day. To top the day off we saw Irish Step dancers and listened to an Irish band. Perfect.

Saturday we saw the green countryside of Dublin as well as the Irish Sea. We also enjoyed walking through the streets of Dublin. Some shopping may or may not have taken place. C'est la vie :)

When in Dublin...See Guinness' Home

Seeing best friend Elise!

Before boarding our 5 am Sunday plane back to Paris we went to Dublin's oldest pub. There we met our friend Dermot. It was Dermot's 26th birthday. All in a days work, exploring Dublin and getting invited to an Irishmen's birthday party...

Happy Birthday Irish friend Dermot!

Irish Dancers!
