I went to Dublin for my summer holiday last year. I stayed at a hotel for a week. I went there
with my best friend, Jane. In Dublin, we visited some museums and went to an Irish pub. On
the second day of my holiday, I decided to go to the countryside, but Jane didnt want to
come with me. Instead, she wanted to go shopping for some souvenirs. In the countryside,
everything was beautiful. There was a lot of green everywhere! I met some local people and
had lunch with them on the green fields. But suddenly it started to rain. An Irish family
invited me to their house, so I didnt get wet. They were a lovely family. I spent the evening
with them and left. During my stay, I saw beautiful architecture and visited art galleries. The
Irish familys son, James, gave me his number, so we can still keep in touch. We became
good friends. It was an incredible holiday. Dublin is unforgettable. I want to go there again
for my next summer holiday. I am thinking of staying longer this time.
