Dublin in winter

Library of Trinity College

After we visited Galway we brought my mother to Dublin and got to be “first time tourists” with her. This included a visit to Trinity College to have a look at the book of Kells and the library where they filmed some scenes from the Harry Potter movies.

It was quite cold and I didn’t take a lot of photos, but we walked around to see a lot and had a very enjoyable time.

    The St.Stephen’s Green shopping center brings me a lot of memories!! The NBA store is still open there?? 😀
    Big hugs!!

  4. That library looks warm and inviting, and what a mall. Enormous looking it is!

  5. Yes, we loved that library and just stood for what seemed like ages just staring. What I loved about it this library was the fact that it still used by students or other people for research.

  6. Oh my god. Looks magical. I love reading and now you helped me add a place to my bucket list.

  7. I love Dublin. I was there over Halloween one year and they had a very spooky a capella vocal concert in the library! Definitely somewhere I want to revisit

  8. The pictures are wonderful. Hoping to make it there some day soon.

    I hope to visit Dublin someday…especially in winters if I can survive the cold! …LoL! I want to visit the famous bars too

    Now that is the library I want; well maybe not as large, but a raft of oak shelves in casings that can accommodate my books. Need more space or maybe a garage conversion. Lovely place is Dublin and a pint of the black stuff is a solid way to end the day 🙂

    Oh, I’d never leave the library! I hope to visit Ireland some day and I will definitely add this to my list of places to stop!

    Dublin is a gorgeous city to visit. I’ve only been once but definitely want to visit again.

  18. I love a warm-wood old library in chilly weather! My all-too-brief stops in Ireland included mandatory Guiness sampling tours in pubs, and paying my respects to James Joyce, but looks like I stopped exploring way too early.
