Literary Pub Crawl- Dublin

It is funny how some things surprise you.  When I was planning our trip to the British Isles this year and selecting tours to take,  Dublin was the only stop where I had not eagerly selected a tour.  I had been to Dublin before and had taken a hop on hop off tour that hit all the highlights of the city.   In the end, I thought that since Ireland is famous for beer drinking, a pub crawl might be a fun alternative way to spend the afternoon.  I was surprised to find out that the pub crawl I chose was not an ordinary pub crawl but a LITERARY PUB CRAWL.   Apparently, many of the famous Irish writers got their inspiration while drinking a pint or two or three.  It made sense then to learn more about these writers, while enjoying beer in a few pubs.   How perfect is that? I love literature and my partner loves beer.  It turned out to be one of the best tours of the trip.

So far I have completed three double page layouts of the crawl.  I am posting the last one I made as I am loving the Guinness beer and beer wave that I made.  I shamelessly stole the beer wave idea from a card on a The Ton bloghop, but I can’t find it again to give proper credit to the designer.
