Hello Ireland! We decided to ring in the new year Dublin style! This was my first time in Ireland and I must say, it was quite an experience. We got SUPER lucky with the weather…it was 60’s and no rain which for Ireland at this time is usually impossible. Dublin was one of those places where you didn’t have to “dress up” or dress nice whatsoever. It was such a nice change….I wore leggings and a big teddy bear coat and sneakers every single day and I was beyond content.

Where to stay:

The Westbury Hotel was BEAUTIFUL. It’s centrally located and the staff was super helpful Their lobby is a destination for afternoon tea in Dublin so the people watching was phenomenal.


We drank a lot on this trip because why not. The Jameson and Guinness tours were a HIGHLIGHT. You learn about the history, the process to make it and there is a tasting at the end of both….the real reason to go. & to get a t-shirt at the end.


HOWTH(1/2 Day trip)

Howth was beautiful but I must say, freaking freezing. There were all theses little fish and chips pubs lining the water with music and people out and about. Only about 30 minute train ride from center city Dublin so it’s the perfect 1/2 day trip if you want to get out of the city for a little.

Can’t think of a better way to ring in 2019! Happy New Year Friends!
