_- German version below / deutsche Version unten -_ Howdy beer lovers!🙋 I outed myself as a beer lover in my last article for the #BeerSaturday [challenge](https://steemit.com/beersaturday/@detlev/whooot-5-steemians-get-paid-to-drink-beer-and-blog-about-this-isn-t-this-a-cool-challenge) by @detlev before. With my today's article, I'd like to share some impressions of my visit to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin with you. --- <center> The Guinness logo already gives anticipation even before entering the museum. ![_MG_8046_bear.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmVCwtf7h442z9mkQpnk3tk6crmT5PMoLD12mpRgZzDhAt/_MG_8046_bear.jpg) </center> --- If you think of irish beer, you inevitably think of a good, cold Guinness. As a Guinness lover you should not have visited Dublin without visiting the storehouse. That's why I spent half a day to get to know the history of Guinness. In order not to spoil before you get to visit the museum, I only want to share a few rough impressions. The Storehose is divided into s

When I left for this trip. I had grand visions of making a daily vlog each day of it to maximize the memories, and make dozens of Steemit posts about it, but then I realized that the thing to do was just to stop for a minute and take in what I was actually experiencing. **After all, every minute spent on the computer is one minute NOT being on vacation.** Plus, this was an especially unique opportunity. After living in Europe for going on two years, my mom finally had a chance to come visit me. This already meant a lot to me

The Irish president also declared his loss. Irish President Michael D. Higgins describes O'Riordan's death as a major loss to the Irish music world. According to him, O'Riordan music has a huge influence. A number of celebrities, through social media, expressed their deep condolences with the death of O'Riordan. Among the bands are The Corrs, Duran-Duran, and the host of James Corden. "The first time I met O'Riordan, when I was 15 years old. She is a kind and loving woman. I got her signature on my train ticket and it made my day so happy. He has a very good voice and skilled. I am very sorry to hear he has died today, "said actor and comedian, James Corden on his Twitter account. Rearview, O'Riordan is known as a successful vocalist to deliver The Cranberries to the international stage. In the 1990s, songs like

With the lack of snow ever in Ireland, I decided on a really quick photoshoot outside the house. ![IMG_0391.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmZAQxTiuGVAFRmTJXxHZAGigoyKEWg1wkH67T5KkjQDMZ/IMG_0391.jpg) ![IMG_0431.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYrP8ow1zNc1TEqc2uQfweL1hpAtW3WT7TxWCdGtn9goM/IMG_0431.jpg) ![IMG_0469.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmUbJJ3gk2HB89UhRndJxaXC4UwszyCqSLRh3JB1QTpAAp/IMG_0469.jpg)
https://youtu.be/fg-LUCoj6MM I was so lucky my friend Deirdre got me a ticket for this so so special night in honour of Shane McGowan. Lisa O'Neill and Glen Hansard sing 'Fairytale from New York' with John Sheahen from The Dubliners. 22 years ago, we chose to live in a rural village in Cavan, called Ballyhaise, with a population of less than 500 at the time. Lisa O'Neill is from that tiny village. So are the Strypes. Small place, huge talent.
My village under snow... ![20180116_232025.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmTMJ3TPacTJRqqGkoCi5NCspP8JtjnfVtZt1FMt4jC3wo/20180116_232025.jpg) ![20180116_232016.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmNYEKVDKTxwxkhpKFyL1smtHfHyjNGb1aTLh44RhnSf5X/20180116_232016.jpg) We're right by the sea, so it almost never lies here.

It's definitely a rare sight here in Dublin and I hope it snows like fuck for the rest of the night! It might be trivial for some but I love it when it snows in Ireland. ![IMG_0362.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdHWBisS1CLgsZh68QKH56z4z71QZZG9eyg6Eg5CbULB6/IMG_0362.jpg) ![IMG_0363.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmed9f4YcdBACmBB7srETPFyVZvHV8VWMwx74styuGi5tL/IMG_0363.jpg) ![IMG_0365.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQ6EWZ4872q7rn2MgCxjEYVqXWzJktwHdCepzV8ujXLaP/IMG_0365.jpg)

Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer of the Irish band Cranberries, passed away at the age of 46. Cranberries was one of the biggest band act in the 90s, everyone in my generation will remember hits like Zombie, Ode to my family, Linger, etc. RIP Dolores. https://youtu.be/RUmdWdEgHgk

Long before I moved to Ireland, I used to listen to artists from Ireland. My 2 favourites: Sinead O'Connor and the Cranberries. The news just broke that the lead singer of the Cranberries, Dolores O'Riordan has passed away. I'm not one to idolize artists like U2 or other sell-outs...but this brings back memories... This is one of my favourites. # Chuid eile i síocháin Dolores RIP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zz-DJr1Qs54&index=3&list=PL1ADC83CC2A7CC114 ![steemitrevolutionmisslasvegas.gif](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQ1yUobS2jjVCskN3dk6q57MeRRgDDrrnom86C5ZaS9XL/steemitrevolutionmisslasvegas.gif)
