Back from Dublin!


It's been a few days since we've updated the blog. Partly, this was to let Monica's post sit on top of the pile for a few days (a huge congrats to her for cracking the Top 100!), and partly because we've been away.

Dan turned 18 earlier this month, and in the UK that means being able to drink alcohol. Without further ado, we flew out to Dublin for a lads weekend which was pretty epic. As well as hitting up the usual spots (Guinness Storehouse, Jamesons' Distillery, Dublinia, Dublin Zoo, Bewleys etc) we got to see the FlightFest on the Liffey - over 130,000 people turned out to see 30 aircraft fly insanely low over the river.


As well as playing tourist, we did the obligatory drinking. This included a drunken trip to Temple Bar with the endless Dubliner tribute bands, drunken tourists and insane prices. We ended up hitting Club M for most of the night where a couple of bottles of bubbly and a bottle of jaeger rounded off the night. We're keeping the drunken pics off the internet (we're professionals, honest!) but here are a few of our snaps of the best of Dublin (and all these attractions are included in the excellent Dublin Pass)...
