We stayed in Dublin for the entire trip and took a lovely day trip to The Wicklow mountains on the "P.S. I Love You"(yes, the movie!) tour. I think the hubs enjoyed it, not! We saw beautiful rolling hills, Lake Guinness, a Monastic Church with two lakes, and the Avoca Mills.
Here are the beautiful and fun places we visited. Enjoy!!!!
|Avoca water mill, Avoca, Ireland|
|The River Liffey, Dublin, Ireland|
|The husbands favorite place, Temple Bar Pub, Dublin, Ireland|
|Guinness Storehouse, Guinness Beef Stew Dublin, Ireland|
Guinness is a big deal in Ireland. Everyone and their mama drinks this stuff. We drank Guinness almost everyday. I couldn't handle full pints so I downsized to half pints instead.
|Monastic Site, Glendalough, Ireland|
|Avoca Mill, Avoca, Ireland|
This was the highlight for the day tour, The Avoca Mill. They still hand weave Irish wool from sheep, dye them bright colors, and make blankets, totes, scarves, and more! We were able to tour the mill and see the weavers in action.
|Queen of Tarts Tearoom, Dublin, Ireland|
|Trinity College, The Long Library|
Trinity College is the oldest college in Ireland. It houses the largest library, The Long Library, with 5 million books and counting. The old relic The Book of Kells is here. Truly amazing!

I hope you had fun viewing my trip to Ireland. I'm off and away to another island but this time, East....I'll be back soon, and this time, I'm coming back with 3 suitcases full of Japanese fabric for my upcoming shows! Yay!
