Kilmainham Gaol, whiskey tasting at the Irish whiskey museum and of course, Guinness storehouse! All the people we met were super friendly and welcoming. The tour guides at each place I mentioned above were awesome, you could tell they were really passionate about their subject! Definitely will be visiting Dublin again!

Having a pint of Guinness in an Irish pub in Dublin is basically a backpacker's bucket list item at this point. But the city has a ton of beautiful history and culture beyond its music and nightlife. Great for a long weekend!

I always had a thing for Irish people. I love their music, their accent, how kind and good they are...so I loved Dublin, too! The most fun thing and that one thing I wanted to visited for a long time is the famous Grafton Street ( yeah, the one that Ed Sheeren sings about )which I thought it's super fun. It's full of people, bars, restaurants... The whole experience in Ireland was amazing and I would like to visit again, hopefully...very soon.
