On Thursday, we went to Dublin. We were going to take a walking tour, but decided to just grab and map and go exploring on our own. Our first stop was Dublin Castle. We were able to go in and tour a few of the rooms on our own.

On Friday, we woke up early to head to Howth. Des sat down with us to show us where to go and the walking path to take once we arrived in Howth. He helped us call a taxi and explained the Dart, which is their metro system. Once in Howth we found our way to the Howth castle and stopped to make some new friends along the way.
On Saturday, we journeyed to Malahide and took a tour of the castle. It is from teh 12th century, and one of Ireland´s oldest castles that is still in use. During this tour we were able to learn about the history of the castle and some of the antiques that are held within.
