Spent the morning driving around Belfast in the heavy rain. It continued to pour rain all the way back to Dublin. There were a couple spots in both Ireland and northern Ireland where it the road was flooded, but our little Opel made it through. It's only a little over two hour drive from Belfast to Dublin, but it took us an additional three hours to find the car rental agency and get a taxi to the hostel. My back was very greatful to be rid of the (very small) rental car. Jason caught a ferry back to London, while I opted to stay in Dublin a few more nights.
