Ireland Day 1 Limerick


The flight on Aer Lingus was fine.  We arrived in Dublin and found our way to the bus to take us to Limerick, a 2 1/2 hour bus ride away.  If you do this make sure to have cash and exact change as the driver does not accept credit cards. We were dropped off at Arthur's Quay and we were about to hop in a taxi when we spotted our hotel, The Limerick Strand Hotel , about 400 metres away!

We left our bags at the hotel (too early to check in) and set off for breakfast at the Hook and Ladder, a fun place to begin our day.

Later in the day, we set off to explore the pub scene and enjoy our first Guinness in Ireland at the Mickey Martin's Pub, a little authentic pub where the locals frequent. The place was buzzing! The Guinness  was definitely better than at home.. It tasted fresher, richer and fabulous!

We met Shirley, who advised us to go to the Tom Collins Oyster Saloon where we headed next.  

We picked up fish and chips from Donkey Fords and headed back to the hotel for a good sleep!
