on to Dublin...

We visited Dublin in June for 5 days. It is a wonderful city with an excellent and amusing take on the English language... love those accents! Most of our time we spent in the city, walking the streets and taking in the beautiful old buildings. We visited a very old prison, the Guinness Storehouse, and took a day trip to Newgrange neolithic tomb built in 3200 BC. 

Beautiful red brick buildings

Temple Bar

Kilmainham Gaol - Dublin's historical prison

Guinness poured correctly at the Guinness Storehouse

Hill of Tara - you are King if the rock speaks when you touch it 


Entrance to the tomb - squeeze through an S shaped passage to a corbel arch toward the center of the mound
