Destinations, Europe, Ireland, Journal


August 17, 2014

Dennis and I ventured to a small fishing village in on the eastern coast of Ireland called Howth [pronounced like Ho-Ho-Ho-wth…if that makes sense :) ]

We sat in the front row of a double decker bus on the way there. It was cool to see a bit of countryside as we rode—my favorite part being the massive fields spotted with little sheep.

It isn’t that far outside of Dublin, but it definitely is a completely different environment. It is a TINY little town, with only one main street.

There is one main pier, some carnival rides, a few restaurants and a whole bunch of little fish markets.

The tiny bay was filled with sailboats and we wondered if we were going to get rain dumped on us as big fluffy dark clouds rolled in over the bay. It rained pretty much every day in Ireland—it makes sense why it is so green! We got super lucky though and just missed the rain during our time in Howth.







We got some fish and chips and sat down by the water. It was my first time eating fish and chips  [I knew I had to try it, as it is super popular in Ireland and we were in a fishing village!]

We got the haddock fish, and I have to say, I really liked it! [They only gave me one ketchup packet though, so I had to ration it :)]

We walked on the pier, and it was beautiful—and SO windy. Dennis took a picture of me and said, “Wow, your hair looks funny.” Thanks, Den–this high-force wind is obviously perfect conditions to create flawless, flowing locks… ;)

There was an elderly couple that was super adorable and looking at something [we have no clue what] through these GIANT binoculars. Dennis had me snag a pic of them because they were just too awesome.




We wandered up the hill a bit and found this beautiful old church and castle. We may have trespassed onto some museum property…but it’s hard to tell. Regardless—it was pretty great!






We finished our lovely day in one of the many fish markets. Dennis really wanted to try some more fish, so he got a huge package of smoked mackerel for about $3. Once again, we sat by the water and he chomped away at his fish [straight out of the package…].

It was an adorable little town [emphasis on little], and well worth the trip!

Ireland was good to us. It is incredibly beautiful and we really enjoyed it.

We are now off to our final European destination for the summer!

    I think everything posted was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I am not suggesting your information is not good, however what if you added a title
    that makes people want more? I mean Howth
    – kelsey heenan is a little plain. You could look at
    Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to
    grab people interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
