Day One Dublin - Doolin

Leaving Dublin along the Liffey we head for the wild west. Kick-start your adventure with a tipple at one of the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world!THIS PLACE WAS COOL!! THE GIRL GIVING THE TOUR HAD A REALLY COOL IRISH ACCENT. AFTER A TOUR OF THE WHISKEY PLACE THEY GAVE US SOME WHISKEY! WHICH WAS ALSO GOOD. I DRANK MINE AND AMYS AND ERINS CAUSE THEY DIDNT LIKE IT FOR SOME REASON.  THEN I HAD SOME CHICKEN WING ON THE TOUR BUS.

Cleanse your soul at Clonmacnoise, Ancient monastic city on the shores of the Shannon. THIS MONESTARY WAS ALSO COOL. IT WAS RIGHT NEXT TO SOME LAKES AND THERE WERE COWS EVERYWHERE. AMY WANTED TO TOUCH ONE SO WE WENT OVER THE FENCE AND TRIED TO TOUCH A COW BUT EVERYTIME WE MOVED CLOSER TO IT, IT STOPPED EATING AND LOOKED AT US.

WHEN WE GOT PRETTY CLOSE IT STARTED MOVING FORWARD AT US. HAHAH AMY STARTED RUNNING AND THE COW CHASED HER A BIT TILL WE GOT TO THE FENCE. HAHA (ALSO THERE WAS A CUTE REDHEAD AT THE RECEPTION AREA WORKING THERE.. TAKE THAT JEGS!! THERE ARE CUTE REDHEADS SOMEWHERE) =P


Explore the Burren - limestone landscape scattered with ancient tombs. Hear tall tales of warriors and wenches at Pol na brone Dolmen before taking in the dramatic views at the Cliffs of Moher - the most famous cliffs in Europe.  THE TOMBS ARE COOL ALTHOUGH WE ONLY SPENT A FEW MINUTES THERE.. THE STORY THAT CAME WITH IT WAS FUNNY.  THE CLIFFS OF MOHER WAS THE REASON I WANTED TO GO TO IRELAND IN THE FIRST PLACE.. IVE HAD IT AS MY SCREEN SAVER FOR MONTHS AND I FINALLY GOT TO SEE IT.. I WASNT DISSAPOINTED.

. THE CLIFFS WERE AWESOME EVEN THOUGH THE PUT A FENCE AROUND IT. IT WAS RAINING A LITTLE BUT I DIDNT CARE.. THE LITTLE CASTLE WAS COOL TOO.. I THINK SOMEONE LIVES IN IT CAUSE I SAW BEER BOTTLES WHEN I LOOKED IN THE LITTLE WINDOW.


We stay in a hostel on the Atlantic coast in Doolin �" the home of traditional Irish music. THE TOWN WAS SMALL.... 4 PUBS AND A STREET. HAHAH WE ALL WENT TO THE PUB AND HAD SOME DRINK AND FOOD... IT WAS A REALLY SMALL PUB BUT IT WAS A GREAT TIME.. THE AUSTRALAINS CANANDIANS SOUTHAFRICAN AND AMERICANS ALL GOT ALONG AND GREAT STORIES SHARED BY ALL... EVERYONE WAS POSING LIKE TIGERS WHEN THE AUSTRALIAN GIRL KEPT SAYING "YOURE A TIGER!" IN HER FUNNY AUSTRALIAN ACCENT.. WE WALKED BACK AROUND 12AM WHILE THE REST WAS STILL IN THE PUB.. IT WAS RAINING AND LIGHTING.. AND DARK HAHA NO STREET LIGHTS.. IT WAS PRETTY CREEPY BUT WE GOT BACK TO THE HOSTEL WITHOUT BEING ABDUCTED BY THE MYTHICAL PONY THAT STEALS YOUR SOUL WHO LIVES UNDER THE BRIDGE WE HAD TO CROSS.. PHEW...
