On Monday, we started as usual at Starbucks, and walked to Kilkenneys, near Trinity College. We took the tour bus (tickets are good for two days!) to Dublin Castle and followed the self-guiding tour there.
We walked to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and looked around.
Then, we hopped on the bus to the Jameson Distillery.
We were a little early for our 2:00 tour, so we had lunch at Christophe’s Cafe. I had a beef stew and an Irish coffee. Both were tasty.
We followed the Jameson tour and had a comparative whiskey tasting. The tour was interesting and fun. It was enlightening to taste the difference between Scotch, Irish, and American whiskies. We took the bus back to the hotel.
We walked to Merrion Square and then to the National Gallery, but it was about to close.
We then walked to St. Stephen’s Green, and to a nearby mall.
Then, we found ourselves at Wagamama for dinner. After Pad Thai and Gyoza, we walked to Neary’s for a pint of Guinness.
