D is for Dublin.

There are many great things to do in this city, split in the middle by the River Liffey, but it can best be described in photographs.

Dublin is mainly known for Guiness, food and music and that’s about all I did, with the exception of the magical Book of Kells and the Kings College library.

The Guinness was good.

The food was necessary.

Well, not always necessary, but lovely.

If you love live music, food and beer, Go to Dublin. That is all!

    I enjoyed Dublin when I went back in 2011. Fun city with lots to do – Guinness Factory was great, even though I hate the stuff! Lou x

    • Tbh I’m pretty much the same. Don’t like The Black Stuff at all, but the Guinness factory was an excellent tour. Great city, really enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by.

    I couldn’t tell you which picture made my mouth water more: the library, or the fish n’ chips. 😀

    • That library is just the most stunning place. I’d just seen the Book of Kells in the flesh, then walked up the stairs to see “this.” I was in literary heaven. (It also has the oldest harp in Ireland, in a glass case, half way down on the left hand side.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    That library is gorgeous. SO jealous that you saw the Book of Kells in person! The book we have (that you saw on NJ’s site the other day) is made my the King’s College curators, but I know it is nothing compared to the original. Love the hanging art between all of the aisles of the library. Beautiful.

    • It honestly was one of the most beautiful things I think I’ve ever seen. You walk up the stairs and everybody just stops and tries to pick their jaw back up off the floor as the library opens up.
