I consider myself lucky to be able to travel as much as I do for both pleasure and work and turning thirty years old in Dublin with eight of my closest friends certainly is among my best trips to date.
Not only do I have some great shots of my Knack backpack but also a few suggestions of great spots to check out in Dublin, Ireland.
Exploring Dublin Castle was a remarkable self-guided tour and makes for a pretty stunning sunset walk as well. We took advantage of less foot traffic saving our walk of this centuries old national landmark for the end of the day.
The best pint in all of Dublin had to be the true and tried Guinness Stout at the Bow Street Experience in downtown Dublin. Not only did they convert what was the original Guinness Brewery into a multi-million dollar experience, they still happen to pour the freshest, smoothest glass of beer in all of Dublin. (For a Knack travel tip, save your entry ticket for the end of your tour to enjoy a pint at the 360 degree observation bar atop the Guinness Brewery building.)
For authentic Irish Music and lively entertainment look no further than Temple Bar in historic Dublin. This place gets busy but the music is as traditional as it gets and while the food may seem tourist-focused with favorites such as "Shepard's Pie" and "Lamb Stew", the cuisine is actually perfectly executed and hits the spot after a day of exploring the cobblestone streets of Dublin.
Traveling across the Atlantic ocean for a fun-filled long weekend was surprisingly simple using my large Knack backpack. I wasn't sure if my backpack would be enough for four days worth of clothes and an additional pair of shoes along with my computers but sure enough with the two multiple sections and expandable suitcase compartment I was able to make my entire trip work with literally one bag.
Overall, whether it happens to be a celebration or not, Dublin is great place to visit and has so much to offer between history, food and fun. I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a next destination for an adventure.
