DUBLIN DAY 1 | GUINNESS STOREHOUSE AND TEMPLE BAR

We landed in Dublin at 10am after nearly 3 hours of delays with our flight. After checking into our hotel and freshen up, we hopped on a bus to the city centre and boarded the Laus from Abbey Street to the Guinness Storehouse for €4.80. A piece of advice to anyone planning a trip to Dublin, make sure to get lots of change if you're planning on using public transport as drivers only accept exact change. Tickets are roughly €2.15-3.30 each way. 

While I'm not the biggest fan of alcohol, you can't visit Dublin without visiting the Guinness Storehouse and Temple Bar. We booked our tickets for the storehouse online for roughly €50, a drink voucher is included with your ticket. I was expecting the Guinness Storehouse to be floor upon floors of Guinness but it was so much more than that. There was music, interactive stations, video explanations of the history behind the famous beer, artwork and so much more to see and get involved with. At the top floor, there was a rooftop bar overlooking the city and this is where you can claim your drink voucher. This was my first time trying Guinness and I can confirm, it was disgusting. Sorry if I have offended any avid Guinness drinkers.

Our next stop, Temple Bar. Again, I wasn't sure what to expect but I wasn't expecting for Temple Bar to be more than just one bar. It's actually an area bursting with pubs, restaurants and galleries. If you're looking for somewhere with a proper Irish feel, this is the place to go. Please note, it can get very crowded so if you want to get good photos, I'd suggest going earlier in the day.
