Dublin Bublin Day 2: Sightseeing

31 07 2010

Wakey Wakey rise & shine…it is Day 2 of my Dublin Bublin experience. I could not meet my tutor etc on this day since she was not available, and therefore this day was spent sightseeing etc and doing some other things.

After breakfast (Full Irish Breakfast it said on the website…although I have no idea about the difference from an English breakfast…we had bacon, eggs, sausage, baked beans and toast…breakfast cereals were also available), we left to go around Dublin. After doing some ‘errands’, such as checking when the buses leave to the Uni the next day, going to some banks to check about opening a bank account and doing some shopping, we went to our Free Walking Tour. I have been to another New Europe tour in London last year, and have been to a free tour (operated by someone else) in Barcelona. This was my third tour of its kind. I certainly was not disappointed. Out guide knew a lot about Irish history etc. He in fact has a degree in Medieval history if I remember well, and could give us lots of info. The tour took 4 hours (including a short 20min break for coffee in the middle), and not 1 minute was boring! He was willing to answer questions and knew a lot of things. Thank you Gravan.

After this we went to the National Museum of Ireland of archaeology. We were quite tired at this point, so we certainly did not get the full experience. But anyways, we went around, and we will certainly be back!

After this lunch, and back to the hotel (having our hotel so near the centre was great allowing us to just pop in for 10mins, leave some things behind and move on). Then left to do some shopping. After shopping we again went to sit down next to the River Liffey and have a talk.

After this we had a hot choc and an apple pie and off to sleep we went!
