Spring Break in Ireland...Colllllege!

Well, I've finally recovered from our Spring Break guests. Tyler, Ian, Kevin and Maura visited for UT's spring break. What a week!

It was the guys first trip to Ireland. We did the usual: Trinity College and the Book of Kells, Christ Church, St. Patrick's, Guinness and Jameson. We also got to stay in Waterford Castle. Thanks Maura! It was amazing. There's really nothing like taking a private ferry to an island, driving up the misty lane and arriving at a castle for the night. It was a very unique night in Ireland. And it was definitely the best meal I've had in Ireland. I can't wait to go back soon and play the golf course as well.

Other highlights of the week included being kicked out of a pub in Dublin (soooo Spring Break), becoming official Jameson whiskey tasters, brewing our own batch of Guinness, the St. Patrick's Day parade and testing out many, many pubs in Dublin. Check out the slideshow below for some of the shenanigans.

And as a warning to all our future visitors, this is what happens when you nap the first day instead of getting your body clock adjusted: jet lag. Kevin pretty much slept in every seat he took, the entire week.

I'm exhausted, but it was great to have family visit us so soon. I had fun getting to know Ian and Kevin, who both came so close to becoming classy cousins. This is definitely a St. Patrick's Day I will never forget.
