Irish Treasures

“Greystones has a rocky beach, so you may be able to find sea glass there.” <–The moment the owner of the AirBnB apartment uttered those words, my hopes of finding sea glass in Ireland rose and I wanted to immediately jump on a train and head out of Dublin!

Two days later we were on the train, ready for an adventure. We chose the train route that hugged the Irish coast, so I could stare at the sea as much as possible. When we arrived in Greystones, we admired the little town and quickly headed for the beach.

We found a tiny slice of beach…

….and it gave us a few pieces of glass

I was a very happy girl, but ready for more adventure! The Irish sun was shining, and I wanted to soak up every minute of it, and enjoy another treasure hunt.

So we hopped back onto the train, to visit a rocky beach we’d seen on the trip down the shore.

Killiney Beach turned out to be a great spot for glass, meeting friendly people, and having a long walk along the crashing waves. We even found 3 pieces of blue sea glass!!!

After our adventure (and a circuitous route back to the train station), we had hot cocoa and an espresso as we waited for our return train to Dublin’s center, and our ultra-cool apartment in Temple Bar.
