Day Trip to Dublin and the Spectacular Scenery of Mahon Falls

by Jessica Barney, Greenheart Travel Independent Homestay Participant

Emma and I took the 7:10 train  to spend the day in Dublin, Ireland. From the train station, we walked to National Museum of History. We were there too early, so we went into the cafe and had tea and a danish (a croissant with chocolate chips). After the museum, we took the Luas to Dublin Castle, and took the tour there. After the 12:00 tour at Dublin Castle, Emma and I went to Temple Bar, and ate at The Quay.

After a good meal, and apple crisp for desert, we walked to St. Patrick’s Park and Church. Of course, we fit in shopping before we had to go back to the train station. I bought the rest of my souvenirs at Carrolls, and Easons, and then we went to Penny’s. Pennys is now my favorite store I have ever been to. I bought a nice pair of jeans for 9 euro! It was very cheap, but with many stylish clothing. After our day in Dublin, we took the train back to Waterford, and watched UP! It’s a good movie.

We went to Mahon Falls (pronounced Man Falls), where I saw sheep, and the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. We drove along the South Eastern Coast of Ireland, where we stopped at numerous places for pictures. For dinner, I had my first “chipper” experience, and we ate at the boardwalk.
