Everything is so old its mind blowing. Pubs are running in buildings older than the U.S.. The other day I realized I was leaning against a wall that used to be the city wall. That does not exists in the U.S. in any capacity.
On the other side of this, hearing Irish people complain about a two hour drive is adorable. I drove 17 hours from New Orleans to DC in one day. That is the entire country of Ireland three times.
