After a long night of flying we arrived at dawn in Dublin.  Of course, could not sleep on the plane, even when it was too dark to see much of anything.  As the dawn arrived, we were almost at our destination.  I was Sooooooooo excited.

Just before landing in Dublin the rosy gleam of dawn.

After getting off the plane we had to go through the customs.  There were two lines, those who were coming from someplace far, far away – ok those who were not Irish or EU and the rest.   But I guess because it was way early in the morning, the line seemed to only consist of people we had seen on the plane with us.  It didn’t take very long at all to go through.

Then we had to walk, and walk to get to the place where the shuttle bus to our hotel would pick us up.   We were very ready to see it arrive.   But oh the fun.  We were the only ones on the bus, but ended up making a side trip because another one had broken down on the way to the airport so our bus went to the rescue.

By the time we got to the hotel the sun was definitely up!

Bewleys' Hotel Dublin

Bewley’s Hotel – Dublin

We had booked Bewley’s Hotel – Dublin on recommendation of our family in Ireland.   Very much appreciated.  Food was good.  Rooms were nice and the view was nice too.  We would come back there anytime!
