Weekend travel guide to Dublin

Travel guide to Dublin

Are you itching for a quick getaway to Dublin? Look no further! Join me on a whirlwind weekend trip to the vibrant streets of Dublin, packed with affordable flights, hotel drama, delicious dining experiences, and a sprinkle of unexpected airport experience. 

Booking Your Trip:
I opted for an affordable two-way flight with EasyJet, keeping my travel expenses in check. Tip: Morning flights tend to be cheaper, but if you're not an early bird, consider the trade-off between cost and comfort.

Weekend travel guide to Dublin


Accommodation:
My friend used Booking.com to snag a hotel, but my stay at Louis Fitzgerald Hotel left much to be desired in terms of customer service. I recommend exploring other options for a more enjoyable stay.

Exploring Dublin:
After checking in, at night we headed to Café en Seine for a fun-filled evening. However, the highlight of my gastronomic journey was the fantastic lunch experience at Joel's Restaurant. Just remember, Dublin's notorious rain calls for umbrellas and warm jackets, so come prepared!





Unexpected Encounters:
Lack of sleep from the night before and a jam-packed schedule led to some serious snoozing during my travels. But the real excitement unfolded at the airport on my way back. As I waited for my flight, a fellow traveler left his phone behind. Acting quickly, I alerted the café staff nearby, hoping to reunite the forgetful passenger with his device. While I never learned the outcome, it was a memorable moment amidst my Dublin adventures.

Unexpected Connections:
Before I wrap up, let me share some heartwarming encounters I had in Dublin. I had the pleasure of meeting some lovely people, capturing memories in photographs, and even stumbling upon some surprising connections.

During my time in Ukraine, I had a roommate who often spoke fondly of her sister, although I never had the chance to meet her. Imagine my surprise when, attending church with a friend in Dublin, I spotted none other than my roommate's sister – someone I had only heard about  and seen her picture at the beginning of medical school! Our reunion was filled with laughter and warmth, and I couldn't help but notice her radiant skin.



Another memorable encounter unfolded in a rather amusing way. After church, my friend and I decided to take photos together. Struggling to find someone to capture our moment, I approached a nearby lady for help. To my astonishment, she and my friend recognized each other from their secondary school days and immediately embraced. As they reminisced and exchanged contact information, I stood by, amused by the unexpected reunion. Eventually, the kind stranger became our photographer, capturing the joy of our impromptu reunion.



These chance meetings added an extra layer of magic to my Dublin experience, reminding me of the beauty of unexpected connections and the joy of shared moments. As I reflect on my weekend adventure, I'm grateful for the memories made and the wonderful people I encountered along the way. Cheers to Dublin – a city brimming with surprises and heartwarming encounters!



So there you have it – my weekend travel guide to Dublin, complete with tips, tales, and a dash of airport drama. Until next time, happy travels!
