After officially leaving the Seychelles we finally made it to Ireland! Two long flights, a lot of time waiting in airports and barely making our flight in Abu Dhabi we landed in Dublin, what a difference! Though it’s been sad to leave the place we’ve been living in for two months we are excited to explore even more before our return home!
Right when we stepped off the plane we knew we were far away from the Seychelles, the 30 degree difference definitely changes things! We took a bus into Dublin city centre and realized we had over 5 hours before we could check into our hotel so we had some time to burn!
We walked around the city a bit before deciding to go to Kilamahain Gaol, an old prison in Dublin. It was a place we tried to go to in our last trip but didn’t have enough time so we were excited to finally see the inside of the jail! The history was amazing and the tour was awesome and informative!
Afterwards we could finally check into our hotel and we were amazed by the little things like a fully functioning bathroom with hot water and a huge bed! After living so simple for two months having commodities like that is amazing!
Now we are preparing for our few days we have in Ireland and can’t wait to travel around just a little bit more before our return home!
After our time in Seychelles, we’ve decided to spend a few days in Ireland! It made sense since we’re flying through Dublin already, and it actually saves us some money on the flights to stay an extra couple days in Ireland on our way back. Since we will only be there for a couple days, we were looking at just spending some free time in Dublin, maybe spending a day or two traveling around and seeing attractions, but overall just being able to walk around the city and experience more of the Irish culture. The Dublin Pass is a great tool for being able to see many of the great attractions in Dublin which we’ll take advantage of for sure, from the Guinness Brewery to the Kilmainham Gaol the pass has a lot of perks and saves you a lot of money, rather than paying for each place individually! There also are many day trips you can take from Dublin, and since the one place we weren’t able to travel to last time around was a pretty well known spot in Ireland, we’ll be taking a day trip to the Giants Causeway, and even have some time to stop in Belfast in Northern Ireland as well! Hopefully after two months in the Seychelles we’ll be up for some more traveling, but I’m not too concerned with that.
Until then we’re just continuing to prepare for our time in the Seychelles, 4 months to go!
