...well, Guinness is actually a pretty big deal:
We did plenty of other fun things. Tried soda bread, shepherd's pie, and had a lot of salmon (never got around to an Irish breakfast or black pudding, though), got served free icewater at restaurants, and met some awesome Irish people. One of my favorite weekends in Europe yet.
It was a great weekend in Ireland and a fun few days back in Florence, Tomorrow I'm off to London!
