Ireland

I went to Ireland earlier this month. I flew in and out of Dublin but I had visited the capital city about 10 years ago on a long weekend when I was studying in London so, I took the opportunity to quickly catch up there, but I tried to spend the rest of my time in other parts of the country. In that vain, I took a daytrip to Belfast, Northern Ireland, and then went to Cork for one night (basically two days). I enjoyed my time in all the cities. Cork was very quaint and Belfast was larger than I imagined. All of the political murals in the city are pretty far from the city centre and I took a Black Cab tour to see them.

The visit there was pretty quick and there was a lot of time spent on Irish Rail, but it was nice to get away and relax and not be hurried into seeing a million things.

A few photos from my trip are below and the rest can be found on my Flickr page.
