I have organized and am posting the photos from our first two days in downtown Dublin, after returning to Dublin for our Ireland tour. I hope you enjoy these:
- July 12, 2009: Return to Dublin <--- Click here to view! July 12, 2009 we started the day in Dublin Ireland for the second time. I got up before Sue and went for a short walk around. Then we went to breakfast. After breakfast we walked around more and ended up at the Guinness storehouse where we did the tour. We met this cute young couple from Missouri there. Then we went back to our hotel where we met the tour group for the first time. Stephen our tour leader took us for a walking tour over to O'Connell Street where we saw the old Post Office where the Easter Uprising of 1916 started the war that led to the liberation of Ireland and the creation of the Irish Republic. Then we went to the Arlington Hotel where we saw some Riverdance style dancing.
- July 13, 2009, Dublin Day 2 <--- Click here to view! In the morning we met Cliona, our morning tour guide, who took us for a walking tour of historic Dublin. We went to Dublin Castle and to the first Parliament Building of the Irish Republic. We ended up at Trinity College where we saw the Book of Kells. Then Sue and I were on our own. We went to Grafton Street and had lunch at Duke's Pub. We then went to St. Patrick's cathedral. On the way back we passed St. Kevin's Cathedral. Dinner that night was at Luigi Malones in Temple Bar.
These are all from the Europe 2009 photo collection I am building on Flickr.
