The Pogues @ Terminal 5, NYC - 3-15-2011 (34)

Going to Dublin end of April!

April 7, 2009 | Photography, Travel Photography

Last weekend, I was about to book a flight with my girlfriend down to Florida to see my parents again. I’m glad I didn’t (no offense Mom and Dad haha) because we found out that tickets to Dublin were cheap! Well as cheap as they have been. Kristen and I decided we should do it and go to Ireland. After all these years of wanting to go, I’m finally going! What’s even cooler? I’m seeing Shane MacGowan of the Pogues perform with Sharon Shannon as well! That show is on May 1st at Olympia Theatre by the way…

I’ll be going April 26th and flying back May 4th. All year I have been putting off my vacation time at my job, and I need to use before May so it makes sense to go now. I’m not sure how the weather will be, but at least point I don’t care. As long as I can take pictures of stuff, I’ll be happy. I’ll bring my baggies so I can put them over my camera like I did in Scotland. We’ll be staying a week in Dublin, by the Grand Canal area. We plan on going to see all the sights and tourist-y things like Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Dublin Zoo, St Patrick’s Cathedral, and even the Guinness Factory. I don’t drink but still might be cool to see how things are made over there. Then we’re still deciding what other things to do but I’d like to get out to Howth, Malahide, Dun Laoghaire and Newgrange (I know that from Clannad’s song haha). It’s still up to debate on whether to spend the money and visit Galway or Cork for the day. I’d love to see the Cliffs of Insanity..err I mean Cliffs of Moher on the west coast.

Whatever we decide to see, expect to see a TON of photos from the trip, and I’ll have plenty of blog posts after I get back. Comment down below on things I should see in Dublin and outside of Dublin, thanks!
