Dublin

site 4 Comments 25th February, 2014

I’m finally trying to make some kind of update. First my laptop was in repair (it’s not good when they know you by face in a repair shop) and then I’ve just been busy. I haven’t reviews any books I’ve read here but I try to say few lines about those at some point.

I’ve been now about 1,5 months in Ireland and I love it! I have 1,5 month left and I’m starting to feel panic if I have enough time to see everything I want. I booked my flight to London next month and I can’t wait! Planning to see at least The Tower and British Museum. I also plan going to Galway and I’m curious to see the other side of Ireland.

I study┬áBusiness and Administration and I’m doing my internship/job experience here in Dublin at a bookshop. I’ve really loved working there but it’s also very dangerous place and I’m fearing for my suitcase when I travel home… I’ve already bought 27 books and I’m only been here half of the time! My friend came last weekend and took almost all of my books with her so now I can buy new ones :D

Kilkenny Castle

I visited Kilkenny and I fell in love! I could move there! It’s beautiful medieval style village about 2 hours from Dublin. I visited the castle and just walked around the city for a day. I could easily have spent more time there. Sadly the medieval part of the castle was really small but the rest of the castle was really pretty.

Malahide Castle had huge and beautiful garden which I walked through and got lost lol. Thankfully the rain stopped for awhile and I could get few photos of the castle.

Trim Castle

Last weekend I went to see Trim Castle. Some scenes for Braveheart was filmed there and we went to the room where Edward I throws Piers Gaveston out of the window. I was so wearing the wrong shoes for this trip! High heels for climbing tiny steps was not fun but it was worth it. We also went to the roof and the view was awesome but there was also (again) heavy wind.
