Guess what, we are in DUBLIN! Leigh is on the Loose and we are ready to rumble!
We started the tour with coffee (and tea for the Leigh).
Dreamy! We wandered by the Dublin Castle to oogle this round tower, the only intact medieval tower in Dublin. We also swung by the spectacular Christ Church Cathedral, which was pretty impressive. The old industrial architecture around the Guinness Storehouse was pretty amazing. The required activity when visiting Dublin is to find a pub with live music and a warm, boisterous atmosphere. We definitely checked both those boxes with Cobblestone. Not only did I have my first pint of the year (dry January + most of February, with a special Ireland exclusion clause), the live music was excellent, and which also included impromptu singing by rowdy groups of Welsh men and talented locals (who show up at pubs with violins and flutes, even when not part of the official band). It was pretty heavenly!
