The Book of Kells – in the book
Shelbourne hotel – in the book
The Book of Kells is in Trinity College. It is a historically significant book and extremely rare. It was hand painted. However, it was difficult to actually see because of being kept in a dark room, and trying to fight dozens of other people to get close enough to try and read it.
Shelbourne hotel is one of those hotels that I will never stay at, but was neat to see. I was greeted by men in top hats.
We took a double-decker bus tour around Dublin. It is a great way to see lots without killing my feet. We sat on the top deck. One of the highlights was seeing a naked guy in his condo. He obviously knew he could be seen and didn’t care. It made me giggle.
We went back to The Temple Bar to listen to Irish music. It was a group of three men and they were very good.
I am glad to have experienced and seen Dublin. I wouldn’t make a point of returning, but mostly because there are so many other places on my travel bucket list.
There were five of us on this trip and here are our nicknames:
Me – boots
Jennie – sassy pants and tiny bladder
Jeff – smasher and Jeff-Jeff
Dave – Guinness Master
Nevenka – long pour
Use your imagination. I’m afraid I am not at liberty to explain the origins of the nicknames. You really had to be there!
