So hello from Ireland. We are here in Dublin
and it is lunchtime so we’ve tracked down the oldest pub in the whole country. We are
here at the Brazen Head which apparently dates back to 1198. That’s like what 900 hundred
years or so that this place has been around. But I mean obviously not the whole structure
is authentic. It is probably just a few bricks and stones. But anyways it is the oldest in
the country and we’re here for lunch. So Sam is having his Guinness and I’m going
for a nice pot of tea. Got to stay warm in the city. teetotaller. Owe that burns. Oh
my gosh. Hahaha. Wow. That is hot. Careful over there. Be careful. I’ve seriously been waiting for this for a
long time. Of course I’ve tried Guinness before but this is my first pint of Guinness in Ireland
and I’m ecstatic because it is basically my favorite beer in the whole world. Ooh. An extra special beer today. Oh, so fresh.
So tasty. You know what, I could drink this literally as a meal. It’s that good. So it is a cold day here in Dublin so I’ve
gone for a cream of vegetable which isn’t a very typical Irish dish but I think it is
going to keep me warm. Mmmmm. Tasty? Very. So you’ve gone for something a little bit
more hearty. Yeah, like this burger is enormous. It’s one of the biggest looking burgers I’ve
had in a while. Oh la lah. And these fries. These are the thickest cut
of fries. Look they’re thicker than my finger. I hope you’re planning to share. Hahahaha.
I don’t know about that. Time to try one of these bad boys. It’s hot. Yeah, they’re done really nicely. Really crispy
on the inside and mushy in the middle. Like that. Ready to devour that monster burger of yours?
Alright, this thing is so massive I’m barely able to hold it here. Wow. Can you chew and describe it at the same
time? That was such a big bite. So I got a bit of everything in that bite.
Bacon, the meat, the vegetables and the lettuce and the patty. That’s a really good burger.
It’s thick, the meat is juicy and the cheese is fresh and delicious. Let’s have a little bit of a travel update.
What are we going to be doing over the next few weeks? So, over the next two weeks first we’re going
to be spending one week in Dublin just checking out the city, visiting some of the main attractions,
eating lots of Irish food and seeing what that is all about. And then our second week in Ireland we’re
actually parting ways. Sam and I will be doing our own thing. I’m doing a girls road trip
with my two sisters. You sound really happy about that. Yes! But yeah, I’m doing a girls road trip for
a whole week and my sisters and two of my friends are flying over from Canada. So this
is just going to be the five of us. That will be lots of fun and no boys allowed. And I guess Sam, you’re going to be hanging
out here watching football. All by my lonesome huh? Mmm hmmmm. That’s the plan. So it is not all doom and gloom over here.
Even though I’m by myself I’m planning a trip up to Kerry and I’m going to be coming back
to Dublin and I’m going to watch some Gaelic football. I don’t know a lot about the sport
but they’re having a really huge event happening and I want to take it in. Well that was a really neat bar. What kind
of makes it unique, aside from it being the oldest pub in all of Ireland of course, is
that there is all of these different kinds of rooms. You can eat outside, you can eat
inside a bar and there is a second level up top. And so we checked out most of it.
