Hello! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my first post. Let’s talk Ireland. First, I couldn’t have had a more wonderful time (shoutout to Caroline Federer for making my stay so lovely)! I hadn’t really ever thought to make my way out to the island, but i’m so happy I did. The city, the people, the beer…THE BEER… it’s all amazing. As some friends and family might know, I am not a beer drinker. Arriving into Ireland, I was prepared to make the step from Corona to Guinness. Yes, the very dark, very daunting beer I had never, not once tried it in the States, so what better place to try it than the place where it originated? I unfortunately did not go to the Guinness Storehouse, but since I was with a local (again, shoutout to Caroline), she told me I needed to taste the best Guinness in all of Dublin.
She didn’t have to tell me twice.
We showed up to a pub in Dublin’s city center called Kehoe’s. A quaint, super crowded bar where literally every single person was drinking a Guinness. Now, I honestly thought the beer would taste like burnt toast, but I was very, very wrong. Guinness is partially like having dessert, partially drinking a cloud.
To everyone I have mentioned that all beer is bad. I was very wrong and I apologize. Guinness is phenomenal and is now my favorite beer.
