The Best Excursion

As I near the end of my internship here in Ireland, my days now mostly consist of going to work, going home and doing homework, rinse, and repeat. I have found myself swiping through pictures of my time here and excursions I have been on, and by far my favorite is visiting the Giant’s Causeway.

A group of students and I woke up at the crack of dawn and caught a bus to the Dublin City Centre in order to take the Paddywagon tour. Our first stop was the Dark Hedges and I was the most excited for them because I am a huge Game of Thrones fan. To my disappointment the Dark Hedges were a lot smaller than I imagined and they looked very different from the show, but I still got a few good pictures.

Our next stop was the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge in Ballycastle. I personally hated the hike but it was really worth it because the views from the island were stunning. After the painful hike back we quickly stopped for lunch before heading to the Giant’s Causeway.

The Giant’s Causeway was unbelievably beautiful and we were lucky enough to get clear skies all day, which is apparently rare up there. I loved seeing the waves of the sea hit the basalt columns of the Causeway. After taking a plethora of pictures we headed back to Dublin but not before stopping in Belfast and getting the best coffee and donuts in Northern Ireland from the very famous Canadian Tim Hortons.
