Last Day in Dublin

Our last day in Dublin, we took the train out to a little coastal town called Howth!  We had a couple of people tell us to do this and I'm so glad we did!  We walked a couple of blocks to the train station and then had a 25 minute train ride out to Howth!  

It was beautiful!  

All of the fresh seafood is delivered right off the boats to these amazing fish markets and restaurants.  

We walked in and out of the shops and stopped at a cute place for a glass of wine and fresh seafood plate!

We went for a boat ride around a nearby island!

 I like this below picture with the Ireland flag in it. 

We also went to the Yacht club to check that out and we got a few souvenirs here!

Of course we had to stop and share some famous fish and chips too!

We cruised back on the train to Dublin and got ready for dinner.   Before dinner we walked around some more then met two other couples for dinner at Bull and Castle.  It was delicious!  

We started with a couple amazing charcuterie plates.  

Kevin and I shared the T-bone and they serve everything over there with fries.  Meat and Potatoes!

It was a wonderful last night spent with good friends!  

Friday we hit the road via Uber to the airport and flew direct back to Charlotte.  We arrived back home around 1:15pm local time and ran home to get our act together before going to get Grady.  It was so nice to unpack and shower quickly.  Kevin went directly to the office.  The next morning I woke up early and drove to Pawleys and back (3.5 hours each way) to pick up our girl!  It was sooooo good to see her.  Yes, she had the time of her life with her cousins and aunt and uncle!

Whew, what a whirlwind of a trip!  Thanks for following along!
