St. Paddy's Day

Well after a disastrous start to our St. Patrick's day, we actually ended up having a lovely walk about town.

We started off looking at this fun pub. This is actually where we waited for the bus that never came.

But then we got over it (not really, our money still has not been refunded) and headed into Merrion square for a walk through Funland. The city had set up a small carnival with cute rides. I'm not such a rides kind of girl, so we just walked around and pretended to take super artsy pictures. 

We then headed to the Natural History Museum of Ireland. I loved it! I recommend popping in if you're in the area because 1. It's free 2. It's full of dead animals. 3. It makes you feel like you've been transported back in time to 1892. 

Cool, right? (If you're a creep who likes dead animals, I suppose)

We then headed to a cute pub who had a trad band playing. We stayed for a couple of drinks because we had seats (which was HUGELY scarce as town was sooo busy with St. Paddy's Day revealers)

We then finished our St. Paddys' day by watching the Irish rugby match closer to home enjoying Ireland's finest brews. 

What's not in this post? Pictures of us fast asleep at 9:00. We're CRAAAZY partiers :)
