Almost exactly a year ago, my parents came to Dublin to visit me. It was their first trip to the Emerald Isle and I was so excited to show them my home and what Dublin has to offer. Hopefully, someday we’ll all be able to go back and bring Melissa with us, but see even more of the country than we did last spring. Until then, we have some pretty great memories from the first trip, and I can’t wait to share my new home with them soon.
Me and my pops at Trinity College. This was the first day of their trip and of course Dublin welcomed them with plenty of rain. We still had a great time!
We went to the Powerscourt House and Gardens for a stroll on one of the beautiful spring days.
My handsome father at the oldest pub in Dublin, The Brazen Head. He is also sporting his new Irish cap.
We saw Christ Church Cathedral.
We went to Drogheda to see St. Oliver Plunkett’s head and shrine. Apparently, we are distantly related to him, so this was on the “must-see” list.
We went to one of my favorite restaurants in Dublin, The Port House. On a sidenote, I think this could quite possibly be the cutest picture of my parents ever!
And we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day! In fact, this will be the first year in a couple years that I’m not in Ireland for Paddy’s Day.
