What's the craic?: part 2

After a slow start on Saturday morning, we eventually made our way to the street to find a place ready for the parade. Luckily we only had to step outside our hostel, as the parade came straight past us. Perfect!

The Irish are an attractive bunch.

The parade was a lot of fun. Unfortunately my camera battery died half way through so I had to resort to Instagram for the rest.

After the parade the party continued in the form of a pub crawl. No, I will not be posting those photos but suffice it to say, a good night was had by all.

By the time Sunday morning rolled around we were all a little worse for wear. We made one last effort to head down to Temple Bar but the this time it was for something a little more civlised. We indulged in tea (and hot chocolates for those of us with an aversion to tea) and scones in the Tea Room of the Clarence Hotel, otherwise known as Bono and the Edge's joint.  T'was a brilliant end to a rather fantastic weekend, I have to say. I definitely think everyone should do St Patrick's Day in Ireland at least once. You won't meet any Irish people but you will meet about 10,000 Australians and you'll have a a ridiculous amount of fun!
