Volvo Regatta: Saturday and Weirs Pub
Unfortunately we arrived a bit late and everyone was already out on the water :( The sky was dark the entire day, but the rain held off until around 4pm.

We walked around for a few hours, listened to some traditional Irish music, walked to the end of the East Pier and decided it was time to go.
Sensing my disappointment, my husband suggested we get a glass of wine before jumping back on the DART to go home. We walked around Dun Laoghaire and stumbled upon "Weirs Pub". It is a really great pub, fabulous atmosphere, nice drink selection and lovely staff. We already had dinner plans, but decided to look at the menu while we were there. Brie with cranberry sauce, need I say more? We will definitely be back for dinner! If you are looking for a great place to grab a drink, or possibly some food, try "Weirs Pub" in Dun Laoghaire.
As for the regatta, today is the big day, so I'm heading back down in a few minutes. The sun is out, a slight breeze, and the air is full of anticipation of a great day! Pictures and a recap tomorrow.
