A Taste of Ireland

Cece, Heather and myself went over to Dublin for three nights. We walked over the Ha’penny Bridge on the River Liffey and went into the grounds of Trinity College where we saw the Book of Kells and the Old library. We took a guided tour around Dublin Castle. We saw the outside of Oscar Wilde’s former home and a statute of him lying on a rock in the park opposite. We also had a guided tour of the Kilmainham Gaol though we were unable to see the main Victorian wing. We looked around the National Museum and the National Gallery of Ireland. We walked around the Phoenix park, saw green postboxes, a James Joyce statute and went across the River Liffey whilst it was soothing, calmly and relaxingly lit up at night by just the streetlamps. We drank in Ireland’s oldest pub which was established in 1198 (though it was a more modern building) and tried the local cider and Guinness
