The great thing about traveling in Europe is once you’re there, it’s really easy to get around. Within one hour, we touched down in Dublin. Home to some of the best beer, whiskey, bars, music, and colleges in the world.
Good, hearty food is what you’ll find in Dublin. I was very impressed with the restaurants, bars and cafes in town.
I found my new favorite drink in Ireland, and no it isn’t Jameson or Guinness. It’s called the summer breeze and it was served at Fallon & Bryne a cute restaurant that is above a supermarket. But this wasn’t any regular supermarket, it was one of the most beautiful supermarkets, filled with fresh meats, fish, cheese, everything looked so delicious! Anyways, back to the drink 🙂 It was tequila, white wine and muddled kumquats. It also came with basil, but I chose to have it without.
Here are a few things my family and I ordered:
Two things we also enjoyed: whiskey and coffee. Cheers!
For dinner one night, we went to a restaurant called Rustic Stone, where you order what meat or fish you want and they bring it almost completely raw to your table on a very, very hot stone and you cook it to your liking at the table. Oh and truffle fries. Yes, I had fries at almost every meal.
I think I’m going to have cappuccino withdrawals back in the states!
We tried this one restaurant called The Lord Edward – I can probably say this is one of the most old-fashioned restaurant in Dublin, but served some of the most amazing seafood I’ve ever had. It was brought to the table in the pan it was cooked in! Oh and we made a friend there too 🙂
When in Dublin, you must visit the Jameson distillery and Guinness factory. I was very impressed with the Jameson distillery and enjoyed a nice Jameson and Ginger.
To take in the local history, we toured Trinity College and saw the Book of Kells!
Well, that’s it for Dublin folks. Remember, life’s too short not to make time for good food, good wine, family, friends and great adventures.
