I saw this on my way to work – a guerrilla gardener had decorating the lamp-posts with roses to spread the cheer. How lovely!

Leafy Dublin…

We wonnnnnnn! England beat Ireland 12-6 today in the Six Nations Rugby tournament. Pretty good result for my first ever rugby match! My friend Laura made us some English roses for our tshirts, so we were appropriately dressed when we thrashed our opponents. This earned us some dirty looks at the pub…

A bit of the black stuff!

My baby Guinness & the boyf’s man-size one!

I went to the Guinness Storehouse today with my boyfriend and his parents who are visiting. I didn’t expect to enjoy it that much as I’m not a big fan of the “black stuff” but I was intrigued to see what it might be like after my research last year for Arthur’s Day.

Fun fact of the tour was that Arthur Guinness originally signed a lease for 9,000 years on the Dublin St. James Gate site – quite the commitment!

I definitely found it entertaining and it’s quite interactive so I’d recommend it to everyone, even non-beer drinkers like myself!
