Ireland Day 5: Ardmore to Dublin

The last day of our Ireland Road Trip!

If you missed the other days find them here:

Our last day was spent first exploring the town of Dungarvan – not a very well know place, but special to us as it where Lee’s mum is from, and lived until she was 16. Lee and his family used to visit a lot when he was a child, but he hasn’t been for 20 odd years so it was nice for him to go back and reminisce. Mostly it seems about the ‘red lemonade’ that him and his sister used to drink in the pub! Now contrary to what I thought, this isn’t alcoholic and tastes just like normal lemonade but it’s just blood-red, so his mum wasnt doing anything wrong bribing them with it to get them to sit still in the pub! We had a  brief look around Dungarvans castle ruins before setting off on the drive back to Dublin.

In Dublin we spent a few hours exploring the city, had a pint or 2 of Guinness in temple bar and walked a good few miles along the river. Lee spotted the Guinness factory but I steered him away!!

When in Dublin

I couldn’t bear to spend a day in Dublin without visiting one of their gorgeous Michelin starred restaurants, so booked us in for an early dinner on the ‘pre theatre menu’ at Chapter One. Well for us it was more like ‘pre ferry’ than ‘pre theatre’ but the food was delicious, so much so it deserves a post all of its own. And that was that. Dinner finished it was time to catch our 9pm ferry back to the UK.

Until next time Ireland!
