Since Lauren was here of course she had to go to the Guinness Storehouse. What else is Dublin famous for? We spent the morning trying to map our way around an unfamiliar part of the city on the trek to Guinness. Luckily we made it & Lauren loved the tour! I have to admit it is quite entertaining, even the second time around!
After Guinness I brought her into the city to St. Stephen’s Green Park, one of my personal favorite parts of the city centre. We could have walked & caught up for hours! Unfortunately, she had a 5 am flight to catch so bed was calling our names early!
One of the best parts of the day was the souvenir shopping. We bought each other Claddagh rings. A traditional Irish ring which represents love, loyalty and friendship (hands represent friendship, heart represents love, crown represents loyalty). The ring dates all the way back to the 17th century. What better souvenir to get with your best friend, right? (Plus we got a good deal!) 🙂
