Sound of Silence

Today has been a bit of an eventful day. We started our day with what was supposed to be a “continental breakfast” but turned out to have nothing but cereal and bread. After breakfast we went off to the Leprechaun musem, and stopped in some of the stores on the way. As we got to the museum, we learned we would get on the 1’o clock tour, so in the meantime, we went off to check out the Saint Michan Church.

It’s a beautiful building, but also very very old. It was built already in 1095, so imagine. After this, back to the museum we went and got to discover the world and tale of the Leprechaun. It was a very interesting to learn the real tale about it, and not just the glorified version of it. The funniest room were the room of the Giants, where we actually got to feel like Leprechauns.

Funnily enough, we met a Swedish guy at the exhibit who had been at Sweden Rock, who so happened to think Lordi was the best show. What are the odds!

After this, we went to have some lunch at T. P. Smiths bar, and it was heavenly! All the food we’ve been eating here so far has been nothing but delicious. Once done, we headed towards some smaller monuments, like the Garden of Remembrance, before we headed off toward the Museum of Wax.

That, my friends was an experience of it’s own. We got to learn a lot about Irish history, and also get scared to death in the Horror Chamber. To be honest, we didn’t actually dare to go all the way into Dracula in case he’d sit up for something.  But we really, really enjoyed it.

After this, we headed home at to the hotel, waited for Sophie to come back and to go and have some dinner. Nathan decided to sit out on this one, and after a long looking around we decided on a pub and it was the best choice ever. Not only was it cheap in comparison to dishes, it was the coziest place, and they had live musician there, which, I guess, most pubs DO have, but what I liked about this one is that he talked to all of us, interacted, entertained, made jokes about where we were from. The dinner became very very pleasant because of him.

Back in the hotelroom we’ve been catching up, talking, planning and enjoying the fact that we are living on the pubstreet and have constant Irish folkmusic 24/7 right outside our window. It’s so fantastic and cozy. Tomorrow, it’s the Guinness musem.
