Tip o’ the day to ya! We woke up wonderfully refreshed at our bed and breakfast. We loved this place the minute we stepped foot in it last night and things have only gotten better since! Here’s me and grandma out front. Our friend from Chanhassen, MN is also in the picture! Not only that, but his sister had just gone to the animal shelter yesterday in my hometown to get her new dog! Cue music: It’s a small world after all…
Today began with a delicious traditional Irish breakfast our B&B host, Patricia, made just for us!
Grandma: Hold up your fish!! Cause it is such a nice big fish!
And it was such good fish. It didn’t really have that fishy taste, either. After that we got some coffee and wandered along the coast of the Irish Sea. Malahide is a fishing village so there are TONS of fishing boats.
We went back to Swords and wandered around the shopping mall conveniently located right across the street from our B&B. Check out the shirt I found! I didn’t buy it, but I think I’d better go back and get it tomorrow. I googled and this place doesn’t exist in Ireland. Gotta have it.
After shopping we went to dinner at a pub converted from an old school house. It was decidedly the best food I’ve had yet on this trip! Even better than Bavaria…tough call. We had goat cheese crustini and THEE best shepherd’s pie. Alex and dad, you would go to Heaven if you ate this. I’m not kidding. And, duh, more Guiness. When in Rome! Dad, I think even you would like Guiness here. It’s so smooth and tasty! We can’t get enough of it – we’re going to the factory on Monday.
