Last weekend I visited Dublin. I went to take part in the Rock n Roll Dublin Half Marathon (more on that later) and to for birthday celebrations of a friend, but also to have a bit of a break – affordable mind. I was with great company; friends and fellow runners from Nike+ Run Club Stratford (aka #e20Tigers).
I stayed for 4 days, but it felt like so much shorter, especially as my friends and I were constantly on the move.
I took a stupid amount of pics for short trip, but here are a "few" highlights:
I think the highlight for me as a tourist was visiting the Guinness Storehouse and pulling my own pint; however I was surprised how long we spent at the storehouse - hours!
Dublin is a beautiful city; the mixture of old buildings with new, long standing Catholic Churches beside stylish cafes and striking graffiti.
Dublin is definitely worthy of another visit, especially as it is an hour flight from London.
More to follow.
