I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
We visited a few bookstores looking for copies of books by some of Dublin's famous authors. On a walk we found a tiny street art fair and a small floral shop with beautiful wares.
Our last night in Dublin, we ate in a bar that was established in 1886, the same year Husband's great grandparents settled on his farm homestead. We learned from our trip that Europe has age and America has size.
We opted for traditional fish and chips and shepherd's pie.
This bespoke tailor was located across from our hotel.

Dublin is where Guiness is made. We took a city tour by bus, but since it was rainy and wet, we did not do the Guiness factory tour.
