Everyone's Irish on March 17th

Since it's St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd take you on a tiny tour of Ireland via our honeymoon pics (don't worry, they are all G rated). 

The fishing town of Kinsale

I came home with bundles of "flake" bars - my absolute fav.  But there were tons of different candy bars to try!

Kensale

It really is good for you, I learned at the Guiness factory that it's only 140 calories a pint and contains mostly water so it's good for your belly!

The University where Dr. D (father-in-law) attended school

The Irish fam took EXTREMELY good care of us!!

I loved the train, and it was fun seeing my new last name displayed in red lights

Brian's cousin got us AMAZING tickets to the Rugby game: Ireland v. S. Africa

It was also the 1st game in the new arena in Dublin


Rugby anyone??
The Google building in Dublin

There were TONS of amazing old buildings in Dublin, if we had more time, we would have gone in all of them!

One of my fav pictures

The Dublin Castle

I spy Houndstooth!

The tile floor at Christ Church - we had a TON of other great pics from this church but they were on the camera I left on the plane =(

We NEVER got used to people driving on the wrong side of the road. 


St. Parick's Statue at St. Peter's Church


The Guiness factory, Brian's favorite part beside the Rugby game.

Or you can do what I did and marry into Irish =)

The view of Dublin from the top of the Guiness factory

Do you see the Shamrock in the Guiness??

Traveling Ireland was exhausting!!! We got to sleep a lil on the train

The Aran Islands

It would rain for 15 mins then the sun would be out for 15 mins...needless to say I did not get a tan on my honeymoon. 


The cliffs of Aran...Brian is afraid of heights so I got super up close and personal with my camera
I have soooo many great pictures but believe it or not...it took like an hour to upload all of these and I had to go to bed.  I have a few more pics here

I'm heading to a St. Patrick's Day themed wedding tonight. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! I think everyone should wear GREEN everyday!!

I've never been out of the country (beyond a cruise ship) but I think Ireland is going on the "to visit" list! :)
