I arrived at 9am to Dublin International, waited in a crazy long line at customs, got my passport stamped and then was ready to go. I caught a bus into downtown Dubin, and then walked to Abby Court- the hostel we are staying at all week. Kourtney wasn't arriving until around 2pm, so I found my bed and took a fantastic nap.
Once she got settled in, we hit the Temple Bar area of the city for some dinner and drinks while we caught up with each other. First we ate at Quay's, a small pub with flowers hanging from all the windows and Irish flags out front. Then after food and our first real Guinness, we moved on the The Temple Bar for some live music and a few more beers.
I goal was already completed for this trip, hearing the song from PS I Love You, Galway Girl, sung live at an Irish Pub just like the move! One day here, and we heard it twice.
We turned in early, and planned out the next several days in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
