Trip Report Our 10 day Ireland adventure

Jump to last reply

Day 1 - Just returned from our 10 day vacation in Ireland. My husband and I are in our later 50's and our 27 year old son went along as well. Started out at Minneapolis airport and had a hassle to start off with - but am finding more and more that the airports are a huge hassle. We arrived in Chicago for our Aer Lingus flight to Dublin. Was an uneventful flight and arrived in Dublin on the morning of 6/24 to a rainy, cool morning. Rented our car from Dan Dooley and as everybody else has stated - they were great. We got a Ford Focus. Our son drove out of the parking lot and got us to our first B&B in Malahide without difficulty. We stayed at the Evergreen B&B. We were too early to check in to the B&B, but Olive was very kind and gave us good advice and let us leave our luggage in our room. She made us a cup of tea and then we drove to Howth. It was a short drive from Malahide, right on the sea. We took a walk along the fishing piers, saw some seals and got lunch. We ate at the Waterside Inn - a small pub. Had fish & chips for our first meal in Ireland. We then walked to St. Mary's Abbey and saw the old graveyard and abbey ruins. We stopped by a Tesco store and bought some meat and cheese and strawberries and returned to the B&B for a nap. When we woke up we ate supper in our room and went to bed.
