It was just a month ago that my travels gave me a brief time in Dublin, Ireland. As I have Irish ancestry, I was really interested in spending a little time there.
As I scroll through the pictures, I notice that the first one is the only one out of the desired order! That’s great success!
We wanted to tour Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin. It was a disappointment when we were greeted with this notice when we arrived. This presented a problem as we had an appointment for the COVID test that was required of all travelers entering the United States.
This is my first view of Ireland from the plane.
We flew via Aer Lingus from London’s Heathrow Airport. This is how they expressed their appreciation.
The view of our hotel in Dublin…The Gresham.
This was glass suspended from the ceiling in the lobby!
Also lobby decor…
The view from the window in our room…
We walked just down the street for fish and chips which we ate outside .
On Tuesday, as we walked around Dublin.
This is just a bit out of order. It’s location is outside Christ Church.
We passed City Hall…
…and we noticed this information on the wall of a building as we were walking.
Christ Church Cathedral…
As we were standing outside trying to decide how to proceed since the information was posted about a later opening time, suddenly the door opened, and visitors were welcomed inside! The above photo, and the ones that follow, are from our tour of the inside of Christ Church Cathedral.
It was an experience to be able to walk through all this history!
After we had those COVID tests (results negative, by the way), we chose to have lunch here. As you can see by the sign, it is believed this is Ireland’s oldest pub.
The menu had many appealing entries.
I chose Irish Stew, and it was delicious!
Part of the decor at Brazen Head…
Wherever you need to go, you can be sure you’re able to get there from Brazen Head Pub!
Bunting inside the pub…
A telephone booth as decor in the pub.
Our outing was curtailed by the arrival of some rather steady rainfall on this day. Another post will feature what we attempted following the rain.
While I took many, many pictures, there are scenes that I didn’t even think to photograph! Pictures help to remember, though they don’t replace the amazing opportunity of being there in person!
Do you have any special weekend plans? We’re still in the midst of +100 heat index days, and we’re focusing on staying cool! Take care!
