First off, I want to give credit where credit is due. We would't've been able to see Ireland without the help of many people. We wanted to see the country but it is a very expensive one with hostels at ~20 euro/person and B+B's at 30+. We were lucky in that we contacted the church mission office in Dublin and were able to get recommendations and contact details for a handful of members around the country. Ultimately half our nights were spent with members, 2 nights were spent sleeping (if you can call it that) in the car, and a few nights with more excellent couchsurfers. Thanks to all of them we had a great time. Thanks to Johanna (Britt's roommate) we learned the way to sneak up to the observation deck at the Guiness brewery before going to an Evensong service at St.Patrick's cathedral so mom could listen to the choirboys. It was a little strange to be going through a service of a totally different church (anglican episcopalian I think but it is all confusing to me). Didn't have time to do much else and off we were to Edinburgh.
