A weekend in Dublin!

I escaped Nottingham a couple of weeks ago to spend a weekend exploring Dublin! It was incredible and I’d highly recommend a trip if you’re looking for a short city break. I got up to some typical tourist stuff, so I’m sharing a few of my favourite sights with you guys today.

Our first stop was Dublin Castle, which was beautiful and the blue sky (despite it being really cold) made it feel a little bit like spring. I’m definitely a fan of the signs of spring that are emerging!

My favourite part of the trip was definitely Trinity College. The geek in me found the Science Gallery there super-duper cool. Despite saying “I go to uni all the time, I’m not going to go away to go to uni!” I’m very glad I took the trip. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a snap of the Science Gallery, but take my word for it that it’s worth a visit!

And when in Dublin, who doesn’t head to the Guinness Storehouse? I managed a shot of Guinness… but I found it pretty disgusting! The experience itself was great, though. Here’s the view from the top:
