Kelly Ford In Ireland with Aer Lingus - Day 2

Thursday, October 17th

I just got back from the trip of a lifetime with my family and I can’t wait for you go too and discover YOUR roots too. We experienced that legendary Irish hospitality from the moment our trip started at JFK airport with Aer Lingus.  

On day two in Dublin, we got started early with a tour of the Jeanie Johnston. "The Jeanie Johnston is a tall ship and famine ship that was docked in Ireland during the Irish famine. It made 16 successful voyages from the Emerald Isle to North America between 1848 and 1855 with – quite impressively – not one life lost."   We also stopped by the General Post Office on O'Connell Street where the big Irish Uprising battle went down on Easter Morning in 1916.  And since it was pouring down rain, we decided to take inside and warm ourselves up with Irish Whiskey at a church turned distillery with some connections to Kentucky where my sisters currently live and I grew.  This is day two of our 5-day trip!
