My Dad and Mickey D's
There are many statues in the city...this is O'Connell street that runs to the Liffey River that splits the city! Heineken building in the background.
Yes I had Cream of Vegetable soup...and a pint of Smithwick's.
Close to our hotel was the 1st stop for tour of Dublin. We bought the "Hop On Hop Off" pass for E15 or about $20 USD. Nothing is cheap in euro countries. My Dad wondered how "normal" people survived the costs. I agree with him.
The round trip takes 1 1/2 hr and first time around we just rode and took in the views. Second time, we hopped off and on.
Trinity College on right. Founded by Queen Elizabeth in 1592. Swift, Beckett and Wilde attended here. It houses the "Book of Kells", one of Ireland's most treasured possessions. Will let ya look that one up!
Left is the Irish Houses of Parliment, but now is the Bank of Ireland. Parliment was dissolved in 1801 when the United Kingdom was formed.
Before the Master's looked in one and they would take bets on who had the first birdie. Bets on almost anything!
