St. Patrick’s Day is today! Exciting, huh? If only I didn’t have a million inches of snow outside my window and could actually go to a parade, but oh well. I’ll live. Instead of wearing green and cheering in the streets, I’ll settle for sharing a couple amazing photos that will inspire you to visit Dublin in the near future.
I went to Dublin (and Ireland) waaaaay back in April of 2014. I missed St. Patrick’s Day by quite a few weeks, but I still had an amazing time. Dublin is a super safe and fun city. It’s strong tourist infrastructure, friendly people, fascinating history, and more make it a wonderful place for travelers – especially nervous or solo female travelers.
Happy viewing! Book your ticket soon and tell me about all your epic Irish adventures! And don’t forget double checking your ultimate Ireland packing list. You want to be prepared.
St. Stephen’s Green. Note: I can still clearly remember how jetlagged I was here. I almost passed out on a park bench. Classy, huh?
Of course, Dublin’s one of the greatest literary cities ever. So many references to Oscar Wilde everywhere! Be still my nerdy heart.
Trinity College is incredible. Part of me wishes I earned my Masters degree here, but I suppose we can’t have everything in life. I settled for roaming the campus fifteen million times.
It doesn’t get much better than Trinity College’s library, though. Be sure to see the Book of Kells! The line is totally worth it!
St. Patrick’s Cathedral glistening in the sun. Don’t miss going inside!
Dublin Castle and pretty yellow flowers. Part of me would love to live in a castle, but I don’t think I could handle all the cleaning, haha.
I wish my apartment building had these colorful doors. I’ll take pink, please and thank you!
