48 Hours in Dublin

So recently myself and a group of friends booked a very last minute trip to Dublin, and here is what we got up to on our super speedy trip.
Flights - £11.50 return though Ryanair 
Hotel - £152 a night at Drury Court Hotel

We arrived on Tuesday afternoon, to find our rom had been upgraded to the three bed penthouse - not too shabby - and after unpacking and settling in we went for a wander around the city to find somewhere to eat and settled on a place called Crackbird, which focussed on chicken dishes - the buttermilk chicken was delicious. Then we went to Temple Bar a 160 year old pub which had the most beautiful Christmas decorations and live music, the place was so packed you could barely move.
The next day began with a wander around the vintage stores in the city centre before getting a taxi over to the Guinness Storehouse for a tour which was great, very interactive and we got to try a pint of it in the panoramic roof top bar, I'm not the biggest fan of Guinness but I would recommend this tour if your in Dublin as it really was a great experience. We also went for a tour of the Kilmainham Gaol which we all thought was the highlight of the trip, it was so interesting learning about the old inmates, escapes from the gaol and the original Italian Job was filmed there which was pretty cool. Then we went to Ladurée for hot chocolate and macarons, where we were gifted a complimentary raspberry tart score! We had to go to Brown Thomas to gaze at all their luxury fashion offerings and I spied the most beautiful pink sequinned Chanel bag and crystal covered Jimmy Choo heels, probably a bit much to ask for Christmas though... We rounded up the trip playing Jenga in P-Macs pub, with a pint.
