Watching Kaitlyn Bristowe at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin  last week reminded me how much I loved my trip to Ireland in March 2015.

VIDEOGuinness Storehouse in Dublin–The Bachelorette was here 2015!

Have you always wanted to travel to Ireland? I loved seeing Newgrange with Brendan Vacations. This historic site which is sometimes called Baby Stonehenge is over 5000 years old! It is 1000 years older than the pyramids.

Staying in Dublin at the Brooks Hotel and participating in the St. Patrick’s Day parade was incredible. I wrote about Whiskey Tasting and visiting Wicklow for USA Today 10best. Exploring 50 Shades of Green in Ireland was fantastic.  Kaitlyn , this year’s Bachelorette, and I had both always wanted to see the Irish countryside. I want to go back to discover the sites of the Game of Thrones Tour and see more of this wonderful country.

Where was Kaitlyn Bristowe?

She had a private date at the TOP of the storehouse in the Gravity® Bar

The highest point of the building, you can sit in the Gravity bar and enjoying breathtaking 360° views of Dublin and beyond.

Shawn showed her pictures in the area where you can learn to pull the Perfect Pint

I learned to pull the perfect pint on the fourth floor and “graduated” with my very own certificate, exclusive to the Storehouse, for mastering the craft of the perfect pint.

I think she missed the Connoisseur Bar

But you should reserve this most exclusive Guinness tasting experience in the world in this luxurious and private bar, discretely tucked away from the main attraction.  While in the Connoisseur Bar, you can learn about the tastes, traditions and stories of these four popular variants – Draught, Original, Foreign Extra Stout and Black Lager.  Plan for an hour and a half with up to sixteen special guests–there is an additional charge for this private experience.

There is so much to see and do in Ireland. Here are some highlights of my journey–more videos and stories to be published soon!
