Day 1 Dublin

Well we arrived. Got settled into our room. We had a short nap. Then we had an afternoon tour of Dublin starting at 2pm.

Here is a picture of our driver, Patrick. Nice Irish lad.


Patrick just did all of the driving while our guide did all of the talking. We had 29 souls on board, mostly older folks.

First stop was a look at some old Georgian townhouses. Here is a sample.


Then we went off to Trinity College to look at the Book of Kells. No photography inside of the exhibit. I learned that Saint Columbkille (The Catholic school that I went to as a child) was actually Saint Colum Cille. Richard and I always thought it was Saint Comical.

Here’s a few pictures from Trinity College. They were filming a movie in one of the quads, with people dressed in 18th century clothes.


Then we rode around some more. Stopped to shoot some exterior shots of St Patrick’s Cathedral.


One last thing before we crash and burn. Here is the beautiful view from our hotel.


Tomorrow we tour the Guiness plant in Dublin

Good night all.
