When visiting Dublin, make sure to visit the scenic countryside at some point, maybe in between those marathon pub sessions. It’s a great way to sweat out those poisons that accumulate in your body after abandoning all sense of decency and diving headfirst into reckless abandon. Was that a bit much? Dubliners would say no. Well they would probably say something more like feck it sure it’s grand! We stayed in Dublin for five days with a wonderful Irish couple who took us on a hiking trip in the Wicklow mountains; this is where the water in Guinness comes from. Why does all this relate to drinking? Ireland is known for its politeness and sobriety so I have no idea. We visited the Glendalough Trails in the Wicklow Mountains National Park and trekked across a 9km trail (Spinc and Glenealo Valley White Route) that spanned waterfalls, grassy hilltops, and scenic valleys.
^^^ The Poulanass Waterfall is the first natural wonder that intersects the trail.
^^^There are 600 wooden steps that lead to the crest of the cliff; this is the OG of stairmasters. Jaime is pretty sure that Dr. Dre gives it a reference in The Chronic.
^^^These guys were modeling for the new Behemoth album cover so they stayed just a few feet away from the path. A perfect spot to be photographed and eat grass at the same time
^^^Dude in a Deafheaven shirt on the cliffs of Glendalough! What’s a Deafheaven, you ask? Nevermind. Just make sure to take note of the hiking gear: black hoodie, black band shirt, black Primark jeans, and black Vans. Obviously this man is a pro.
