Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival

Today my roommates and I traveled to Dun Laoghaire to attend the Mountains to Sea Book Festival. Here we heard readings from Sadie Jones, Jill Dawson, and Claire Kilroy. They were all fantastic authors and I am excited to read their novels. I will say though that Claire Kilroy's novel seemed very dark, and I think it's the one I liked least out of all of them. After we walked along a huge concrete pier. It was such a glorious, sunny day so we took our time and enjoyed it. Below are some pictures and a short video of my roommates.

The adorable town of Dun Laoghaire (pronounced "done leery," who knew?)

Here's a cute video of my roommates by the sea

    And, if I'm not totally off base, I believe Dun Laughaire is one of the towns in P.S. I Love You!
