Day 21 - Cooling Off In Dublin
Every summer when we travel, we spend a lot of time researching the best airfares and have found that Aer Lingus from Boston often has the best airfares. While their website often does not allow you to book long and short haul flights together, we have found if you call them you can still get the website deals. Today we flew from Nice to Dublin and adding on this short haul flight was under $50.
Our trip to the airport from Vilafranche was by the only cab driver recommended by Rick Steve's. He was a little behind in schedule and drove like he was driving in the Grand Prix. We made it there in under 30 minutes which is very fast.
We are staying in the Best Western right off O'Connell Street in Dublin. While not atmospheric, it's centrally located and inexpensive. Dinner tonight was at Le Bon Crubeen on Talbott St where we had a delicious meal of chicken with arugula and new potatoes roasted in their jackets. O'Connell Street was very busy on our walk back to the hotel. We're excited we have a full day here tomorrow.
