On the coach at 9.30am for city tour with Tricia then to the 'Book of Kells'. This was an ancient book of bible written (in latin) around 500-500AD very intricate and neat with lots of pictures very well preserved. Then had a walk around on our own and found a pub for lunch then went to the university museum very interesting, time just disappears when you are in places like that. Dublin is a very pleasant city, seemed clean and well organised. Hurling is a local sport is seems like a mad form of hockey, but number 1 in Ireland. Got picked up by the coach at 3.30 and taken back to the hotel and we had to get ready for our tour of the Guinness Storehouse, Mark very excited but still feeling a little under the weather. Tour was fabulous I really enjoyed it, a must see for anyone going to Dublin, had a tour of the factory and how the beer is brewed, followed by drinks in the gravity bar which has a panaromic view of Dublin. Followed by an aweome traditional Irish meal two choices: Irish stew cooked with Guinness or boiled bacon and Cabbage, don't knock it I know is sound gross but was really delicious. We were also all given a small drink and taught how to drink properly.Back to hotel around 9pm Mark seems to have been cured by the Guinness as it is was promoted as a health drink in the 60s, low calorie and high in Iron etc. Mark had drinks with some of the crew.
