Visiting Dublin

Dublin is the capital city of the Republic of Ireland. Located to the west of  UK, Dublin can be connected via air, and sea.

I took a Ryanair to Dublin from Manchester which cost me only 20 sterling pounds (return). It is only one-hour flight.From the Dublin airport, I took a Dublin bus to the city centre with Euro 3 per person. The bus has a wifi.

Upon reaching the apartment at Iveagh Court  that I booked earlier, I walked to the city centre passing the city park (St Stephen's Green), O'Connell Bridge until I reach the post office. Other place that I visited are Temple Bar area, castle, bachelor's quay and a few institute of higher learning.

Dame Street and the Grafton Street are lively place to visit.Dame Street and Temple Bar are lively at night. These areas offer wine, dine and entertainments.

Dublin is well served with buses and trams. However, if you want to explore, walking is the best option.

Here are a few pictures that I took during my visit to Dublin.

  1. A fine post Sir.

    Dublin & Manchester. Looking at some of those pictures brings back floodgates of memories. Indeed a picture is worth a thousand words. While memories may fade with time, a picture preserves it.

    Paris. I think deep within the heart of this city lies the true inclination of its people – their artistic touch.

    See how some contrast between the British and the French:

    French Gardens; the British & the French
