Anyways, we went to Abigail's hostel to find the boys waiting for us,we got our room and went to bed! After a few hours sleep we woke up to find two Australian girls getting ready to go out. They had been traveling round the world, but weren't exactly traveling light! I had a wee chat with them as they applied their fake tan and straightened their extensions, then we started to get ready. Everyone always says its expensive in Dublin, but it is truly EXTORTIONATE for alcohol. Food and touristy things are fine, but drink is unbelievable! So we stayed in the hostel with some drinks with the full intention of going out again, but we got caught up playing Articulate with an Englishman called James, so we had too much fun.
The next day was Rachel's birthday! So we took advantage of the free breakfast, and went on the bus tour. The tour is well worth the 13 Euros for a student, it shows you all the sights hop on hop off stylee, and does it with a bit of Irish banter and a sing song. We obviously stopped off at the Guiness factory, which I think is well worth the money! The views from the rooftop bar are wonderful, and you get free pint. That night we went out to the same bar with the cocktails and drunkenly wandered to Oliver St John Goggarty's to hear some Irish tunes, and pay 10 Euro for one Vodka and lemonade! The music was good though.
The next morning me and Rachel went market shopping. We found a wonderful one in a shopping centre off of Grafton St, and also found George St Arcade, which is awesome too, and is on all week. After spending all of our money, we went back to the hostel and drank the rest of our rock shandy. Which is the best soft drink on the planet! And, next to the hostel there is a supermarket which makes noodles that are amazing, a great snack. Later on, we found the boys and went to the hard rock cafe and had a final party night in a great city.
