Closing Out Posh Day

O’Connell Sunset corey says…Report from 7June. Posh Day came to a crashing end the moment I strapped my bulging backpack to my shoulders and stepped out into the busy street facing the River Liffey.

I saw loads of people who appeared to be...

Back to Work corey says…Okay, I could get used to this. I decided to treat myself today and booked at the Morrison. Wow! What a difference. The whole place is nicely designed and the staff (yes, they have more than one person working there 😉 are top notch and the whole place is absolutely silent.
