{day 27 - Dublin}

This morning we woke up and had breakfast at the most charming little cafe! The food was so good. I got a big breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage links, toast with butter and strawberry jelly and orange juice - so yummy! When we finished our breakfast we decided to hop on the Dublin tour bus that you pay to ride the whole day and it takes you all around Dublin and you can jump on and off wherever you like! It was so cool to be able to see ALL of Dublin on the top of a double-decker bus! We jumped off at a really cute little store that is a lot like Anthropologie, only it has an adorable bakery on the bottom floor with incredible cookies, cakes, cheesecake, scones, muffins - you name it! I HAD to get the cheesecake because it looked too delicious - which it was. It was unlike traditional cheese cake in that it had a sugar cookie like crust on the bottom and then the same crumbled on top with fresh raspberries and blueberries... way too good.

We also went to the Jameson factory with the intention of taking the tour but it was too long so we had a drink at JJ's, the totally Jameson bar, which was very cool looking, took pictures around the inside of things that looked like they could have been part of the tour and shopped in the gift shop.

We went to Hard Rock Dublin for lunch and ate way too much - but it was so good (It's a good thing we walk everywhere or I would have easily gained 20lbs by now). After our late lunch we went souvenir shopping and then left for the airport. Dublin was really fun - I definitely wish I could have spent more time there!
