Next, we grabbed a hop on-off bus for a city tour. We stopped at St Patrick's Cathedral, which is not a bishops seat and isn't even Catholic anymore. Seems at some historical time, the Church of England claimed all the churches for themselves and they have never been returned to their rightful denominations. The Vatican has refused to appoint a church in Ireland as the bishop's seat, believing it should be this.
Last we hopped off at the Guinness Storehouse, the No. 1 Tourist site in all of Ireland. Go figure!
Touring the Guinness Storehouse proved to be a very fun afternoon. Self guided for the most part, we learned about the importance of their source of water and other goodies that go into the making of a Guinness. We worked our way through the tour space, which is a vertical stack in the shape of a pint of Guinness, to the bar at top. A pint was served. This circular bar is the top of the pint, the place where beer is not poured. Views of the city were all around. Very crowded it was.
