As the weather was bright and sunny we decided to head out to Howth for a seaside journey. We caught the train out to Howth, buying the tickets at the station, finding the right train was not an issue and it took ~45 minutes to get out there. The journey out to Howth was was through suburbia of Ireland and it makes you realise how much of a boom this country is going through when you see all the building that is happening. Howth is north of Dublin and is a seaside fishing village with a small harbour and lots of little cafes and restaurants.
We walked around Howth, stopped in and had a nice coffee before walking up to the vintage radio station and viewing the Hurdy-Gurdy, gotta love that name! :) After that we walked back down to town and found a nice place for lunch. After lunch we walked out to the lighthouse along the harbour wall, now it was a strong wind blowing on this particular day, which when you're wearing a short sleave shirt tends to make you cold :) A slight rain began to fell while we were out at the lighthouse and we decided to head back to town, grab a coffee and the train back to town. We fell asleep on the train back (thankfully Erin stayed awake, someone needs to be responsible), we walked across town to Stephens Green and a general sight seeing walk through Dublin.
Finished up the night eating Tapas with Erins friend Hope, and my friend Heardy. After dinner we headed off to a bar for a few quiet drinks before retiring late in the morning.
