Jamie and Jessica and I spent Saturday hitting all the highlights of Galway from the fresh doughnuts and the Saturday morning market to the Galway Museum and adorable shops on Shop Street. Then the three of us headed to Dublin Sunday morning.
|Traveling with sisters is a special sort of adventure|
|We all successfully poured our own pints of Guinness|
|And then we enjoyed said pints of Guinness|
We then headed to the Jameson Distillery. Since their tours are guided we had time to kill so we browsed the gift shop a bit then got ourselves Irish coffee/hot whiskey. Super tasty.
|A year old, three year, five, ten and eighteen years old whiskey|
showing with different levels of evaporation
The evaporated amount of the barrels of whiskey is referred to as "the angels' portion". The idea of tipsy-little-angels skimming whiskey out of the barrels entertained me.
|Since it was a trade passed from father to son they had lots of nicknames to keep them all straight|
I wonder how the last Kavanagh boy there got his nickname, seems like it would be quite well suited to Anthony Weiner
The tours were really fun and Jamie even revised her low opinion of Dublin. Dun-dun-dun... [ominous music cue]
To be continued.
