St Patrick’s Cathedral

Yes, another Dublin post! but I just had so much fun in Dublin, that I want all of you to buy a plane ticket to Ireland as you read this! Don’t even worry about the rain, its manageable.  Just get layering and grab your umbrella.

When we realized we only had a couple of days left in Dublin, we made a list of everything we still wanted to do, the list was long and we still didn’t manage to see everything, but hey, Dublin has not seen the last of us.  4 months was way too short to get to experience everything that Dublin has to offer.  One thing we really wanted to go see was St Patrick’s cathedral, and its easy to see why.  Its extremely beautiful! All the detailed carvings, amazing stained glass and just a general feeling of peace, makes me want to go back and make it my home somehow.

Walking around this beautiful place of worship makes you feel like architecture and has really gotten laid back.  I mean who is going to build me a house with such fine details?  One thing I have noticed in Ireland is that a lot of strange things go on sale…I saw the most amazing convent with wonderful grounds going for extra cheap in county Cork so maybe one day I could make my holiday home a cathedral, it won’t be St Patrick’s Cathedral, but it would be something I could work with.

Dublin Adventure Part 2

Dublin is just such a beautiful city.  Cobblestones, old buildings, surprisingly clean and a lot of first world problem protesting going on around the city.  People walking their dogs, walking themselves or just taking the kids out for a walk.  Its definitely a beautiful walking city, a great place to get lost in with a hot beverage in your hand and adventure on your mind.  Everywhere you turn there is something interesting to stare at.

Its easy to fall head over heels in love with this crazy beautiful city.
