4 days in Dublin

This New Year’s I decided we should do something different and get away for a bit, so I bought Oli a trip to Dublin for his Christmas present (a Christmas present to myself too I guess). We spent 4 days in Dublin, which included us spending New Years Eve in Dublin too which was amazing! Here’s what we got up to…

So to combat those itchy feet, I’m writing  a series of blog posts on my top 10 travel destinations in the world.

This week, we booked two days in London as we were going to see a show. The question was, what do we do with the rest of our time, that we haven’t already done?
