The Skisters Do Ireland

Day 13: Back at Square One

Filed under: Uncategorized — skisters @ 7:39 pm

Well folks, we’re right back where we started our journey in Ireland…in Dublin.  We’ve traveled all over this beautiful little county.

From Dublin, to Cork, to Killarney, to Ennis, quick stop at the Cliffs of Moher, then on to Galway, then the Connemara region, then Donegal, then to Northern Ireland for a bit of the Antrim Coast and Belfast, we have now arrived back in Dublin where we will spend our final night.  We have an early wake-up call to make our flight, so it’ll probably be a fairly early night tonight.

After driving in from Belfast, we got the car returned (with only a couple of minor scratches which will hopefully go unnoticed) and checked into our hostel.  We then set out to do a little bit of  walking around the city and getting a couple of last minute items.  Since it’s our last night in Ireland, we decided to get a couple of traditional Irish dinners.

Mindi got bangers and mash.  It’s a type of sausage and mashed potatoes.  She said it was quite tasty…and she now has a food baby in her belly.

I got a Beef & Guinness Stew which also came with mashed potatoes and a “crispy pastry” as they called it.  Mine was also quite tasty…and not too Guinnessy, thank goodness.

And of course our Irish dinners were consumed with beer.

While out & about, we (well, I) decided that we needed some more of these lovelies.

Yes, that’s right.  Cadbury Creme Eggs…and not at Easter.  They have them year-round here and I just couldn’t pass them up before we head back to the States.  They are chocolate eggs full of deliciousness, ya know?  And I may have already bought 6 of these at a previous point in our trip…but I definitely needed more.  They have  so many types of Cadbury goodies here…and none of them that we’ve had have been a disappointment.

As I said, I think it’ll be an early night for us.  We are semi-depressed that it’s our last night.  Which is why we drowned our sorrows in Irish comfort food, beer, and chocolate tonight.




  1. Isn’t it great that they have Creme Eggs all year in the UK? What a happy place!
