Today’s a big travel day … we have to go from York all the way to Dublin.
By train we have to go from York to Manchester, then to Chester, and ending up in Holyhead. At Holyhead we take the ferry to Dun Laoghaire in Ireland.
Once we got to Dun Laoghaire, we had a bit of a problem figuring out how to get into Dubliin … as the people at the DART station (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) were not all that helpful when we asked for information.
We finally got to down town Dublin and took a cab to our hotel. The trip was longer because we were being driven … had we walked, it would have only been about 6/10ths of a mile. But, considering we had luggage, it was worth the â‚¬5.
Once we got checked into the hotel, we gave my friend Paul Tuohy a call over Skype. He agreed to pick us up at 9 in front of our hotel.
