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.

Shopping Centre

When I was in Dublin I arranged to meet a friend who lives there and as we had agreed to meet up at St. Stephen’s Green I took the opportunity to look around the shops and the park.

Lovely park

I enjoyed the area and my friend and I had a great time in one of the pubs nearby where we consumed good beer and food. There are plenty of people around the shops and in the area, but it seemed that there wasn’t so many tourists in the pubs in the area. I might have been lucky or all of them was in the Temple Bar area.

Being home again and back to work I can look back on a lovely time in beautiful Ireland. But as much as I enjoyed my trip it’s also good to be home and back to work and everyday life.
