Photos From Our Final Day in Dublin

Our Final Day in Ireland Photos From Dublin I must apologize to all the people we met in Dublin on our final day there. I had assured you the photos I took would be up a couple weeks ago, but I failed. To be honest, I forgot that I had these to do and as soon as we left Dublin we headed to Barcelona then Amsterdam. I have no excuse except that we must have been having too much fun. Anyway, our last day in Dublin was a very spiritual day as we visited Christ Church and St Patrick’s Cathedral, …

Project 365 Does Ireland

I am such a slacker at times. I had full intentions of keeping my picture a day project somewhat current while traveling through Europe, but long days and slow Internet connections made it rather difficult. So it is time to play catch up again. On day 258 we boarded a bus for a three day tour of west and southern Ireland. Since I had never driven on the wrong side of the road intentionally before, much less with a car that had the steering wheel on the wrong side, it was decided that this would be the best way to …

Photos from Dublin’s All Ireland Football Finals

All Ireland Football Finals Photos From Dublin Sunday was the GAA’s All Ireland Football finals at Croke Park, featuring Cork vs Down. About 83,000 people attended, and it made for a definite party atmosphere in the Dublin area. Since we did not have tickets to the game, we started the day off by visiting Trinity College and checking out the Book of Kells. Although no photos were allowed in the library it was very cool and if you ever make it to Dublin, it is worth the visit. After the game started, we walked over to Croke Park and got …

Photos from the Guinness Brewery

Photos From Around Dublin A Visit To the Guinness Brewery and More Saturday, we got a late start, due to my error with the alarm clock. Oh well, guess we needed the sleep. After grabbing some coffee and a bagel at the local O’Brien’s we arranged for transportation and sights to see. We started off at the Guinness Brewery where we got a couple pints and learned to pour the perfect pint. We then jumped on a tour bus and kept our eyes peeled for somewhere to eat. After we finished dinner we walked back to the B&B we are …

Photos of the ride from Killarney to Dublin

Photos From Killarney to Dublin, Ireland The Third Day of Our Tour of Ireland On Thursday, we received notice that a cruise ship was coming into Cork on Friday morning. This meant that upwards of 20 tour buses would be descending on the Blarney Castle, which was to be our first stop Friday morning. Our driver, Don, decided that in order to beat the crowds we would hit the road at 8:00 AM. Another early day. It turned out to be a great idea as there was only one other tour bus there when we arrived. After a couple hours …

Photos of the Road From Dublin to Galway

Photos From Dublin to Galway Day Three in Ireland Wednesday morning, Tanya and I packed up and walked a few doors down to the local Paddy Wagon Tours office to begin a three day tour of western and southern Ireland. Day one was a ride across the island, ending up in Galway. There is a lot of history in this country. I think it would pretty difficult to not feel a certain amount of pride in being Irish once you have visited here and learned more of Ireland’s past. I know I came away with even more pride in being …

Photos from Dublin

Dublin Sights Pictures From Our Second Day in Ireland Tuesday, since we were still recovering from the flight over, we decided to spend the day in Dublin. The first course of business was to find a hostel to spend the evening and a place to dump our luggage. Once that was accomplished we headed out. Dublin is a great little town, with many friendly people. I have to give Guinness credit for being the great unifier. It crosses all boundaries.

Photos of the Journey From Amsterdam to Dublin

Flight From Amsterdam to Dublin Photos From Our First Day In Ireland It was early Monday morning when we arrived in Amsterdam. We only had a couple of hours between flights, so we spent it at the airport dealing with airport security and getting to our gate for the connecting flight. Time flew, so in no time it felt as if we were airborne again, on our way to Dublin. A good friend of mine is from Dublin and he still has family there. His mother, a sister and her daughter met us at the airport in Dublin and took …

Flying from Chicago to Amsterdam

Photos From 35,000 Feet The flight from Chicago to Amsterdam Sunday, Tanya and I packed up and headed to Cracker Barrel for one last meal before boarding our flight to Amsterdam. We flew KLM because we like their service and we know where the good seats are. The flight was a little over seven hours long, and we got no sleep, but we arrived in great spirits. Next stop, Dublin.
