Wow! What an amazing day!! This was one of the most memorable trips I have been on. We started off in Waterford City waiting for our busses at 7:30am. Everyone was dressed in green, and all the international students (200+) were Irish for the day.
As we entered the bus and took off at 8:00am, the drinking had already began. The green, white and orange make up was being applied and the excitement building up the closer we got to Dublin. Once there, the crowds were everywhere, watching the parade and while having a laugh.
Straight from the get go. We went bar hopping, including a bar named ‘Whelans’ which was featured in the movie ‘p.s, I love you‘. The whole day turned out amazing. There were so many of us that even when we were split up, we always managed to bump into someone we knew.
By the time 1:00am hit, we had to run back to our bus and attempt to make it on time, while some of us stayed back for the night. Overall it was a great day that was filled with laughter and great times. We met people from all parts of the world who came just to celebrate in Dublin. It was most definitely the place to be on St’ Patricks Day! ~cheers!
