So this is the final day of the Dublin trip, and I can’t believe how quickly it has gone. It doesn’t feel like 5 minutes ago since we landed, and now I am sat in the airport lounge writing this and waiting to go home. It’s been a whirlwind trip but a great one, and I am already looking forward to coming back towards the end of the year.
We got up relatively early, and after having breakfast we were out of the door and ready to explore again. We only had two full days so we tried to make the most out of them by starting quite early! That being said, I feel like this post is the shortest of the three purely because we didn’t do anything specific and instead just wandered around and relaxed for the whole day.
There were a few places across the river that we hadn’t seen and some shops that we didn’t have time to visit the day before, so we went to them first. I love O’Connell street as it’s such a bustling shopping area but is all pedestrianised, so there is so much space too. The weather was still so cold and bitter but there are a few indoor shopping places around that area too so we kept going inside to warm up a little.
By mid afternoon I was so tired, so I decided to go back to the hotel on my own to just chill out and leave my grandparents to have some time on their own and finish what they wanted to do on Grafton street. It was so nice to just put my feet up and watch a YouTube video for a few minutes. However if you know me you know that I can’t relax for too long before feeling guilty for it, so I ended up writing the introduction and first paragraph of a sociology essay that is due the first week back at sixth form (when you are reading this actually because it’s pre-scheduled).
About a hour later, my grandparents called me and said they were having a snack and a few drinks at a pub close to the hotel, so I put my shoes and coat back on and went to join them. It was nice to be in quite a traditional pub and the chips were pretty great too. I apologise for the lack of photos of this, but I didn’t take my camera with me from the hotel room! Sometimes it’s nice to not be thinking about the specific shots though and instead just switch off with family.
This was our final evening before our early flight the next morning, so we went back to our favourite Dublin restaurant again. The food is just so good! If you go to Dublin I would 100% recommend Luigi Malones, we have been going for years and it is honestly incredible. Their buffalo wings are one of the best that we have tried, and they have a huge menu too of both American and Italian style food. If you have read my blog for a while you will know just how much of a cocktail lover I am, and their drinks menu doesn’t disappoint either. Such an all round fantastic restaurant, and one which I would recommend to anyone.
We had an incredibly early flight the next morning so we went back to the hotel room, got packed up and ready and then had an early night. 6am starts are not my friend! So this marks the end of the series, I really hope that you have enjoyed seeing what I got up to in Dublin and having a nosey at some of my favourite photos I took. Overall I’m really happy with how they have turned out, both on here and on social media over the past few days. As always thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate all of the support I have had recently despite not being around as much as I would like (A levels are hard!) ❤
