"There is nothing great about the Great Southern Dublin Airport Hotel"

This is a phrase that I coined early on in our trip when we really discovered how wonderful our hotel in Ireland was....

Granted, any hotel with a name like The Great Southern Dublin AIRPORT Hotel, is not going to be the most expensive or best accommodation. In fact, it was the cheapest to be found rated at three and a half stars, so we took our chances....

I don't want it to end!

Today was indeed our last day to see the hustle and bustle of Dublin, ride the wonderful and long public transportation, and see the rolling green hills. But, we did all of these! It was a long day, full of fun which taught me a few things...

1. Don't rely on public transportation to make a fast and speedy trip

2. Check times of the attractions you want to see (again, refer to number one)

3. Try different Irish foods when you are here, it will be worth it whether you like it or not

Touristy Day

Today we saw some awesome things, and got to spend more time with my friend. But the better part of the day was spent wandering around, just experiencing the pedestrian experience. It still amazes me that pedestrians just walk when they see the most opportune time, even almost right into cars and right in front of them. Today, I was almost run over by a bus-ish, van-ish looking vehicle.

Worldly Lessons...

Today, on your day tour to the Cliffs of Moher, the people made almost as much an impact on me as actually seeing more of Ireland. The first was the run in with the actually Irish gentlemen. They were very informal in the way they spoke, and very open about drinking, sex, and language...something that I am not used to at all. Most of all, I am surprised at how hard it is to understand many dialects of Irish accent.

Seeing my Friend

So, Saturday, after we got to our hotel, and found it to be rather poor accommodations we decided that if we found somewhere better to stay for a night, we would just stay there. We then went to Dublin, and after texting my friend for a couple hours, finally met up with her!

Go Ireland!!! :-)

Hello everybody, I am on vacation with the two guys that blogged before me here in Ireland! I got the idea to come to Ireland over my spring break from my friend studying abroad here. She suggested it, I thought about how much it cost for about a minute, and then decided that was not any question about it because I have not seen her in so long (she is here for an entire school year) and it is IRELAND! So, here I am :-)

Rock for Life
