Dublin (Part 2)

Indian Chicken Curry
Steak sandwich
We arrived back at our hotel in Dublin in time for dinner. We headed back to O'Shea's to try out their food. John ordered the steak sandwich with chips and I ordered the Indian chicken curry. The steak was a little bit dry, but good nonetheless. The curry was really good! Baby Boy liked it so much that he dipped his sandwich in it. And of course, we got Guinness to accompany our meals.

BIG breakfast
Eggs Florentine
After dinner, we headed back to the hotel to get some rest. In the morning, we got up and John bought Guinness Storehouse admission tickets (10% off if you buy online) on his phone (using the free wifi). Then we were off to breakfast at the Italian Connection. John ordered the big Irish breakfast and I ordered eggs Florentine. YUMMY!!

Brazen Head
Liffey Bridge
After breakfast, we walked towards the Guinness Storehouse. We stopped at the Liffey Bridge (Ha'Penny Bridge) and the Brazen Head, the oldest pub in Ireland.
double fisting!
tada!
The Guinness Storehouse was fun. It's just a walk-through museum type tour, but it's interesting and there's free samples and a free pint at the end of the tour at the Gravity Bar. The view from the Gravity Bar is spectacular. You can see a 360 degree view of the entire city.
Christchurch
Grafton Street
After our drinks, we headed towards Christchurch and the Dublin Castle. Then we shopped around Grafton Street for a bit. We got two bottles of wine at Marks & Spencer's as well as croissants and some other snacks. Then we picked up fish and chips at Leo Burdock's (site is still under construction) for dinner, and brought everything back to the hotel to enjoy. The fish and chips were good!
fish & chips <3











We had a relatively calm night. We stayed in and watched television (an episode of Glee, some weird dating show, and the X Factor). We just wanted to be rested for our flight back home in the morning.
