We headed across the Ha'Penny Bridge (right down the street from where we were staying). We didn't spy any trolls though.

Anyway, we walked in a few more circles (this was the kind of detour that took us about an hour to find Trinity College but only 5 minutes to get home) but finally found Trinity College. I was just thankful for a dry place to hide out for a few hours. Now, I know the draw to Trinity College is to see the Book of Kells, which was really cool and beautiful to see, but I was more excited to see the library. In case you do not know (or may have forgotten) I am kinda obsessed with Harry Potter. Pretty much anything Harry Potter and I get excited. So I was thrilled to be in a place that inspired the Hogwarts library for the all the movies. Since cameras were not allowed I was not able to get a photo with my DSLR but being the sneaky photographer I am, the trusty iPhone saved the day yet again.

Since it finally decided to stop raining for a bit we decided to walk around the grounds a little (and search for a toilet).
We decided Friday night was to be our night out since we had an early flight Sunday morning (that was an adventure that I will tell you more about in a later post...) so we headed back to the apartment after a pit stop for wine, beer, champagne and snacks for pre-gaming with UNO before heading to The Temple Bar for a night out on the town.
