As promised, I finally made a post about my trip to Dublin. I have previously written a post about my tour to Northern Ireland, but writing a post about Dublin proved to be much more difficult. I spent five days there, so many pictures were taken. XD
I’ll start with this image of a beautiful Georgian door. Dublin is known for these colorful doors and they really look lovely!
My first impression of Dublin was actually this gorgeous view:
Here you can see the Jeanie Johnston ship, with the Samuel Beckett bridge and Poolbag chimneys in the background. Jeanie Johnston is the kind of ship Irish people travelled on when they left for America during the Great Famine. It’s hard to imagine crossing the entire ocean like that… But it’s such a beautiful ship!
The next big “stop” was the Dublin Castle. I’m a bit obsessed with old castles, the older the better. XD
The inside is pretty as well. 🙂
The Christ Church Cathedral is another beautiful place to see.
Just behind the Cathedral, lies Dublinia. Dublinia has this amazing exhibition about the history of Dublin, and the people who lived there. Did you even know that Dublin was founded by the Vikings? So, yes, if you’re obsessed with the Vikings as I am, Dublinia is definitely the place to visit. 😉
Then, of course, there’s Trinity College, with its amazing library.
One of Dublin’s famous monuments is the Spire of Dublin, also known as the Monument of Light. It’s really impressive to see it in person. It seems like it’s touching the sky.
Another monument I have to show you is the Oscar Wilde Sculpture. I love it so much! Look how relaxed he looks, with a cynical smile on his lips. Just amazing!
I would also recommmend visiting Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, even if you don’t want to do any shopping. It looks so beautiful!
I also went to see Once, the musical, when I was in Dublin, and it was amazing! I saw the movie quite some time ago, but I think I enjoyed the musical even more. And the special thing about this musical is that before the beginning and during the break, the stage becomes a bar so you can climb up and grab a drink. It was so fun to be on that stage!
And now I’ll leave you with a few more pictures od the streets of Dublin. It’s a very lively city, and you can’t experience its beauty only through its landmarks. I’ll start with the photo of the old man who was dancing while the street musicians played. He stole the show. XD
Hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂
