Budget Ireland Trip 2016 – Day 2: Limerick – We need rest!!! (Part 3)

Saturday 10th September – afternoon to evening

Straight after the castle tour we went out looking for the house that we rented via airbnb. Why airbnb? It was just convenient and all the places from booking.com were either too expensive or there were absolutely no places to stay. Next post will be on the airbnb experience.

Miss Money and I walked using our Google Maps to find the place we were staying… Blimey it was long walk.

We found ourselves a long distance away from the city centre and from the castle… We found the residence we were staying in and then we tried looking for food or a local pub near the area. There were none! People around the neighbourhood were helpful but said the walking distance between the neighbourhood back to the castle was 10 minutes! Irish time seems to be much faster than the English time or they just walk really fast… ¬_¬” They just walk fast. 10 minutes to them is like 20-30 minutes for us wearing heavy backpacks. :p One of the neighbours suggested a pub… so we walked back into town without dropping our stuff as check in time was 5pm. 😦

The pub that people around the area suggested was this place called The Locke Bar where they serve good food and have live music. Miss Money and I ordered the Irish stew… was starving!! Wish it had a bit of bread on the side.

I had ordered a dessert at the same time as the stew but it took so long to come out… I was still hungry at the time… Wish the slice could have been a bit bigger. Didn’t like the plastic servings of the cream and custard. 😦 Anyway I ate it all.

It was time to head back to our place of stay… another half an hour walk… >_<" Took a pic of the dancers and musicians of the night. ^_^

Total spent at the pub for the two of us was €40. Expensive!

My geeky rating: 4/5

Address: 3 George’s Quay, Limerick, Ireland

Total money spent on Day 2: €62.50

End of Day 2.
