Just checked the weather forecast for Dublin. Rethinking my clothing items. Next ten days shows highs mostly in the high 50's. Of course it could change but I'm thinking of layering more just in case. Warmer clothes means heavier clothes. Need to do a trial run of my luggage weight.

Getting closer!

Packing

We did the same thing. Our bag for Dublin is already OVERFLOWING! Not a good sign. We are usually light packers but we underpacked for our cruise so I am trying to reach a happy medium with this one.

I've packed pants/pullover sweaters, etc.

Great news.. the weather has moved into the 60's so looking nice so far.

Spoke w/ABD this morning. Wanted to know if they knew about our guides yet so I could plan the proper tips (euros or dollars) and looks like (unless it changes last minute) we'll have 2 US guides. Kelly & Kristen!

While waiting in the passport line at Dublin airport I met one our fellow adventurers. He had just been on the Scotland trip. We checked into the Westin and our room wasn't ready so they asked if we could wait and enjoy a complimentary beverage while we waited. It only took another 30 minutes and our room was ready and our luggage was already in the room. We were upgraded to a 'deluxe' room, bigger than the others I guess. My DD and I unpacked a bit and settled in to the room. We asked the concierge where a good place to find some Irish food was and he directed us to the nearby Gallagher's Boxty. DD and I shared some soda bread (so soft and yummy) and some cream of tomato soup. Also had 'Cottage pie' with beef and pees and mashed potato crust and Irish stew with lamb, carrots and potatoes. We shared everything and it was delicious. Then we stopped at the supermarket across from the Westin to get some goodies and water. See you all very soon.

Today was our first full day. Did a quick ride about the city on the Viking Splash and then a short tour in the river as well. Went on to see the Jeanie Johnston replica immigrant ship and learn history re: the famine in the 1840's. The ship was in place of the Dublin Castle as the castle was closed for some type of government election. Boarded our motor coach to the Guinness Storehouse where we had lunch. The big favorite was the Guinness beef stew. We then toured the storehouse and had free time of about 45 minutes to check out any of the exhibits further, get a free pint of Guinness or shop in their large souvenir store. My DD and I went to the top floor, the Gravity Bar, for the beautiful view of the city. At 3pm we regrouped and headed back to the hotel. For those who wanted the guides would get admission into Trinity Colleges exhibit of the Book of Kells and the Long Room Library. Most of the group wanted to do this so we had time to run up to our rooms, use the bathroom, drop items off and then we went into Trinity College which is just 1 minute walk from the front of the Westin hotel. My DD loved the library the most. No photos at all allowed where the book of Kells is on display and only photos with no flash are allowed in the library. The viewing area for the Book of Kells was crowded and the lights are low so it was hard to get a great look at it. It was still amazing how well preserved it was and to think of the time and effort put into it!! Our guides met us back in the hotel lobby if we would like directions or dinner suggestions as dinner is on our own tonight.

The Killarney Park Hotel where we checked in today on the 4th of July has nicely decorated a portion of their lobby and serving free cocktails and canapés. So sweet of them to put up red, white and blue accents for us Americans.
