Day 1 in Dublin: we arrived in Dublin at 7am local time. However we were exhausted from the time change and lack of sleep on the plane, so we immediately found coffee and Wi-Fi at the airport. Per our airbnb's recommendation, we then took the airline 747 bus from the airport to the Heuston Station, where we then walked a couple blocks to our apt in Collins square. Anna was there to welcome us and immediately made us comfortable and sat down with a map and gave us tons of awesome recommendations and directions. While Anna finished cleaning from the last guests they had (they generously let us check in 5 hours early) we went to temple bar to get lunch. We are at a place called Bunsen and I had one of the best burgers I've ever had! We walked around temple bar to explore for a bit and then we took the Luas (local tram) back to our apartment and took a nice 3 hour nap. When we got up, we decided to explore the Viking/medieval area of Dublin.
