Ireland: Day 5

It’s our last full day in Ireland! What shall we do? Go back to Dublin and actually explore Dublin, now that we’re pros at driving on the left side!

Clark wanted to go do the Guinness tour so we went and learned all we needed to know about the beer!

The highlight for me, a non-alcohol drinker was this! The t statistic that we use everyday as a researcher was developed by William Gosset: the chief brewer of Guinness! It took beer to come up with the t stat! The power of beer.

How you ask? With your mouth.

The last part of the tour ended at the 7th floor, overlooking Dublin. Clark had fresh Guinness and he seemed to enjoy it very much!

We then headed over to city centre to grab a bite and look at old churches and buildings. The weather cleared up and it was a lovely afternoon!

It was so delicious I forgot to take a picture. But look how satisfied I am after my lunch!DSC02238 We walked around the beautiful streets of Grafton and the Temple Bar area and then headed to our next castle: Dunboyne Castle in Co. Meath!
