Ireland - Day 5 | Dublin & Wicklow

Our last day in Dublin began with brunch at Herb Street. The food was delicious and the place became busy very quickly! The restaurant was in the more modern parts of Dublin which was a complete 180 from the historical parts we were in. Very nice area and definitely a must see!

After brunch the gang split up. My mom, sister, and I booked a half day tour to Powerscourt Estate in Wicklow. The tour I booked was through Love Ireland - started at 2:15pm and ended around 6pm. We boarded the bus at the Visitor Centre on Lower O'Connell street. The guide on the bus explained all the significant landmarks on our drive to Wicklow. We took a short break to see Ireland's east coast beach.

Once we arrived at Powerscourt Estate we had about 2 hours to explore the garden and grounds of the estate. The estate garden was beautiful! Recently it was voted Number 3 Garden in the World by National Geographic! I took probably 500 pictures of flowers and landscape at the estate. Everything was just beautiful and serene! 

Once we returned to Dublin we walked back to our hotel. On the way we managed to stop by Ha'Penny bridge to capture these beautiful shots.

I can't believe we were only in Ireland for 5 days because it definitely felt longer! We managed to see and do a lot in the shot time we were there. Being surrounded by family made the trip even more memorable. The weather thankfully was very cooperative and made the trip very enjoyable! Thanks for all the memories and fun Ireland!
