Things I Learned in Dublin

“A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures.” – Irish saying

*There are 2 kinds of people, “those that are Irish and those that want to be.” (There is a lot of national pride in Ireland)

*Dublin has no Catholic cathedrals.

*Brits like to dress up for stag & hen parties… and it is perfectly acceptable to go out dressed as a condom.

*Real men wear tutus.

*”Americans are just European rejects… the real ones stayed.”

*The Guinness factory closes at 5pm and it is a good idea to check that last admission is at 4pm.

*Real Viking helmets didn’t have horns; just a very popular rumor.

*The Patron Saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, was actually British!

*The Irish fought for their freedom for over 700 years and finally got it in 1921!

*I learned that I can’t wait to visit again!

      • L-plates are what all our learner drivers have to stick in the back window of their car when they’re learning to drive. It’s a white square with a big red “L”.

        People on stag and hen do’s where them too – sort of a tradition.
