I don't know about you, but today . . . I need a distraction. So, let's take one last look at Dublin, shall we?
We only scratched the surface of Dublin on this trip -- and actually spent more time out in the Irish countryside than we did in they city. We didn't visit Trinity College, for example (even though it was just down the road from our hotel), and we didn't see the Book of Kells (we'll have to return). But we did enjoy a few sites in town.
St. Patrick's Cathedral.
The Famine Memorial
(This is not my photo. This haunting and beautiful memorial is spread out over a lot of ground alongside the River Liffey, just as if there were people - many people - walking to their ship to escape the famine. My photos could not begin to do justice to this powerful memorial -- so enjoy this one instead.)
The Bridges of Dublin -- and, particularly, the Samuel Beckett Bridge
(Again, not my photo. This bridge is simply breathtaking -- and there was just no way I could take a photo that would begin to show it's beauty. Really stunning.)
Will ye be havin' a pint?
Dublin is a wonderful city -- vibrant and bustling and full of history. I'd love to go back!
But, for now, it's time to end this travelogue (at last. . . ).
And please, Please, PLEASE . . . VOTE!
