I’m so excited to be sharing some of our recent travels with you all! Truth is we got back just last week and I’m already asking the hubby “where was that place that we had that thing?” Haha! I have the worse memory! But I went through the pictures and they definitely brought all the memories back and they also made me realize it kind of looked like we were on a beer drinking tour! 🙂 You can’t help but want to drink all the local beers and live like the Irish when in Ireland, right?!
Dublin was the first stop of our trip and it was a quick 24 hours. We literally landed at 10 in the morning and hit the cobble stone streets in tourist fashion! So I am excited to share where we stayed and things you should totally do even when you only have 24 hours in this city!
Where We Stayed: Camden Deluxe Hotel
This was the cutest hotel! I typically like staying at chain hotels because I know what to expect, but Brandon found this boutique gem and I couldn’t have been more surprised. It made me feel like I was in Ireland! The décor was so cute and for being in Europe the room was gigantic! We had 3 beds guys! It was right in the center of all of the shopping and restaurants BUT that can also be a bad thing if you are traveling with kids or if you are wanting any sleep at all LOL. The hotel was literally in the center of all the happenings that you could hear music and party goers until the sun came up! If you can’t beat em, join em! But in all seriousness, if you are traveling with kids you won’t want to stay there. Even if they do give you 3 beds!
Where To Eat:
As you can probably assume the choice of food here is pub food and even though it typically wouldn’t be my first choice as a meal, they know how to do it guys! You really can’t make a bad choice when walking into any random pub for lunch, but a place definitely worth mentioning for a really nice steak dinner is F.X. Buckley Steakhouse (OMG so dang good!)
Coffee & Sweet Tooth Fix:
You already know this is a priority no matter what city/country we are in.
Where We Shopped:
We stayed walking distance from the main city center where all of the shopping was. It is right off of Grafton Street and Henry Street. Here you can find cute local shops to all the major chains, but a place you MUST go is Siopaella! It is a designer resale shop and well… enough said!!
Unfortunately, we did not have too much time to shop because we wanted to make sure we saw some of the main attractions in our 24 hours! I’m including a list you should add to your itinerary when in Dublin!
Have you guys been to Dublin recently or have a tripped planned?! I would love to hear!
