Dublin, continued

Since I have a little time to kill before I can check into my room today I’ll try and catch up a little bit for the past week. My 2nd day in Dublin I went on a free 3-hour walking tour, so here’s some pics from around Dublin.

First, this is the Temple Bar. It’s the most famous bar in Ireland and we went there the first 2 nights I was in Dublin. They have pretty good live music every night, but the pints are pretty expensive compared to some of the other pubs around.

Then this is the Liffey River that runs through the center of Dublin and divides it into North and South. The North end is a lot older and kind of run-down in parts, while the south is newer and better looking.

Our next stop was Trinity College, which I guess is the most prestigious university in Ireland. It’s similar to an Ivy League school in the U.S.

This next pic is a small street right off of Grafton St, which is the shopping district of Dublin.

Here’s a picture of the Liffey all lit up at night.

One night we walked by St. Patrick’s Cathedral when it was lit up. Our tour guide told us that the whole legend about the snakes was false because Ireland never had any to begin with. So I’m not quite sure about that.

Then this is when I was getting into the St. Patty’s Day spirit over the weekend.
