    Travel Diaries // Dublin, Cobh, Youghal

    img_0714

    Ireland, oh Ireland! Such a wonderful place! But first things first, we rented a car after our first few days in Dublin and it was one of the best decisions. But if you are under 25 make sure you have all of your documents in. We had a little hold up at the airport (2.5+ hours but who’s counting?!) because they needed verification that we have had our license for 5+ years. Sheesh but with all that said, once we got our car it was all worth it. It was terrifying whipping around the little country roads (hello Cameron Diaz in the Holiday). But it was also the most beautiful drive. Also, major snaps to Katie for driving during the trip! Now let’s talk about Dublin

    We started our adventures in Dublin and spent 3 days there. It was really a great time and let me tell you Dubliners like to party! Every corner there are pubs full of people laughing, singing (singing + chanting all day long), and all drinking! But who is complaining? There is something unmatched about their pride and I loved seeing it.

    Dublin is pretty big and has so much to do! There is castle however we ended up passing on that but we did see Trinity College and their library and that was by far my favorite part of Dublin! It was beyond beautiful and breathtaking! I would definitely recomend doing the Guinness Tour as well. I am not even a huge beer drinker but it was really informative and cool to see. There is also tons of shopping, cool restaurants and bars. I would definitely recommend checking out some of their local spots like the workshop  and brother hubbard. Also make sure to take in all of the street art, Dublin is full of it!

    After picking up our rental car on the 3rd day we headed to Cobh which was an actual dream. I like to think of it as the Irish Charleston. It is a TINY town but just as dreamy as the pictures make it out to be. Cobh was actually the last port before Titanic headed to America so I would 100% recommend the Titanic Museum. It was incredible and the history nerd in me was going a little bit crazy! We also ended up eating at this little local restaurant and I had the best salmon pasta. THE BEST! There is something about fresh fish that I just can’t turn down! Anyone else with me?

    After we walked through little Cobh we headed to Youghal where were staying. One mistake I think both Katie and I would admit is that we didn’t spend enough time in Ireland. We ended up choosing Youghal solely because we loved the cute little Airbnb on the water and it was close to Cork. But when we got to Youghal that night we didn’t want to leave. As soon as we got there we walked down to the beach and all around the little town. The beach was absolutely breathtaking. I don’t think I’ve seen anything as peaceful or beautiful!

    We woke up bright and early and headed to Cork for the day which I can’t wait to share but you’ll have to wait until next time for that one! Thank you so much for stopping by!
