Tour to Dublin

[I didn’t fancy carrying around the DSLR on this trip, so these pictures are from my trusty compact, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS35]

My first visit to Dublin [I’d visited before, but a few years ago] was in the form of a choir tour with some good friends. We decided to get the ferry from Fishguard, which made for a ridiculously long day’s travelling [never again], but at least we could admire the wildlife on the ferry crossing!


Once we arrived, after a spot of singing and a lot of pubbing, we had a day to explore the city. We went on a brilliant river boat cruise, which took in some of Dublin’s famous bridges, including the striking, modern Samuel Beckett bridge.

Our cruise sailed past the famous Customs House

and the Four Courts

And finally, the stunning Book of Kells, housed in the beautiful Trinity College Library.

We might not have had the greatest weather, but we had a great trip, and it was fun exploring a new city for the first time [or the second!].
