We arrived in Dublin late, so we slept in the next morning (as much as the baby would allow) before setting out to explore Dublin. We walked across the city to the national museum, taking our time and drinking in the sights along the way. Too much time, I think, because the museum was closing as we walked up! Frustrated, we sat down for a minute so I could nurse the baby and the hubs could figure out how to get us back to our hotel. We walked back the entire way, stopping to snap a few pictures of the Guinness brewery and to eat a nice dinner at Harry’s.
The next day, we took the train to Limerick and then a bus to the Shannon airport to rent a car. Then, we drove to Dingle through Connor Pass. That was a long day, but Ireland is so beautiful that it made up for it.
We arrived at our hotel in Dingle, the Dingle Skellig, which was very family friendly and set on the beautiful southwest coast of Ireland. Every day we looked out our window and could see the water and, if we were lucky, we could spot boats chasing Fungie, the local celebrity dolphin. The next morning, we hiked to the watch tower on Dingle Bay and enjoyed piddling around town. The next morning we left bright and early for the Slea Head Drive, which was spectacularly beautiful. On our last day, we drove to Shannon via Killarney and spent the night before our early morning departure the next day.
