Dublin

14 June 2008

A beautiful city.  Reminded me a bit of San Francisco with it’s hip Temple Bar area, huge St. Stephen’s Green park, famous Trinity College and posh bars and restaurants.  While the weather was a bit gloomy at times, the people were friendly and showed us a good time.  Nothing major happened so I will supply you with a picture montage of the city to enjoy!

Radiohead!  Look at the ominous clouds above! Yes, it did rain on us, but only for a bit.

Malahide Castle was the venue for this show…Unfortunately, the castle was completely blocked off from everyone so we couldn’t get much closer than this.

The Millennium Spire.  Erected in 2005.

Everywhere I go a city is split by a river.  In Dublin it is the River Liffey.

Buskers were abound in the shopping district on Grafton Street.

The oldest college in Ireland.  Trinity College.  This is the inside courtyard.

Saint Patrick’s Church

Christ Church

Anna and Jen at the Jame’s Gate Brewery where the lovely Guinness is brewed.

Dublin has castles too- right in the heart of the city. They aren’t quite as cool as Prague’s.

Despite my lack of enthusiasm in these posts, Dublin was a great place to be.  That is however, one of the last places I have officially planned on my trips here in Europe.  I hope next to venture north to the Baltic States of Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia.  I know.  It all sounds terribly exciting.
