Dia Dhuit! It means hello in Irish (Gaelic). It is the only word I can remember from a friend that I met in Dublin. Anywoo, my flatmates and I arrived in Dublin after St. Patrick's Day. We were a bit worried that there might be no celebrations anymore like parties and parades but actually, there are several post-celebration parties everywhere in Dublin especially when we went to the area of Temple Bar. It is the place where Irish and Tourist people are. Most of them are just hanging out, drinking beers and making new friends. All pubs are jam packed with lots and lots of energies. Believe me, all people are so energetic to go out, drink and dance all day and all night long Ha Ha Ha.
Just to let you know, every time I travel with my friends, we always opted to travel on weekends because we have busy and different schedules every weekdays. Our trips may be short but it was fun at least we were able to manage to travel and study at the same time. :) Our second day was spent in Guinnes Storehouse. Omg, I remember the countless giant pint of Guinness I had during that day. The storehouse is a massive seven-storey building where it shows you how the famous beer was created and just imagine that you can get free guinness glass in every floor. Amazing isn't? Again, If you plan to visit the Guinness Storehouse, please do book a ticket ahead of time as there is a long queue for those people who don't have any ticket yet. Trust me, it will save you a lot of time if you purchase it online. Moreover, my friends and I had a Girls Night Out (GNO) at Diceys Garden Bar. The place was great and they play EDM/Hiphop songs! I was extemely happy because they played a lot of Justin Bieber songs that night :P Ha ha ha! If you want to try different clubs, just go to Harcourt Street. :P
On our last day, we took a Dublin Tour Bus to save money and time. I think it is very practical for all tourists to take a Hop-on Hop-Off Tour Bus because it will bring you to the top places in the city. Luckily, we we're able to witness a mass at St Patrick's Cathedral and was able to ask for a blessing from the priest.
Overall, I observed that Irish people are genuinely friendly, helpful and talkative. I would not mind to go back here anytime soon with some of my friends :) By the way, we met a very nice and kind taxi driver in Dublin. If you are visiting the city and looking for a driver that can pick you up and drop you off to the airport, kindly email me and I will give you his number. :)
