River Liffey and the hundred bridges over Liffey, Dooder and qays

Four Courts:

Common sight of tourist buses – every 10 minutes:

The trams passing through the city, unceremoniously, but with dignity:

 Jameson Distillery: you get guided tours for 13 Euros!

A complex full of solar light units:

Caught on candid camera:

And something amusing, for today! But, back then, I am sure, it was great!

Bridge over river quay! (mind the spelling)

Outside Guinness distillery (which, once again) offers guided tours for 16 Euros; hundreds of people stand on queues to get those tickets and go round the distillery, paying such big amounts!

The Catholic church of St Anne:

Back to St Patricks’ Cathedral. St Patrick is very special to the Irish; he is Ireland’s patron saint.

St Stephen’s Green shopping complex:

The huge lake at St Stephen’s Green park. Ireland is known for many such “Greens”

The famous British, English poet, Jesuit priest, who taught at University College of Dublin. This time, I lived in the house where he lived over a century ago. It was such an awe-some feeling! Cardinal Newman of the “Lead Kindly Light” fame, was the Rector of this College, and lived in the same house!

I did visit James Joyce; but could not get photos! We also went to the Viking Medieval Area. But could not go in; hence missed photograph.
