Ireland, Part Three – Dublin

We took the train to Dublin.

I love Dublin.

Our hotel, the Shelbourne, was where they signed the Irish Constitution. They had their own little mini museum off the lobby.

Jamie’s platinum with Marriott thanks to all the points he earns on business trips. For our thank you gift, they gave us a list of things to choose from. We picked a rather nice fruit plate.

Jamie and I went out walking our first evening there and when we got back, they had done their turn-down service. Fancy, but a little strange.

The breakfast buffet at the hotel was incredible. They even had a gluten free station with a dedicated toaster. That was so nice!

We took a tour at the Little Museum of Dublin.

We went to the Book of Kells exhibit at Trinity College.

The Book of Kells was cool, but the old library upstairs was amazing.

We took a ride on a hop on/hop off bus. The driver narrating the tour was so funny.

We walked around St. Stephens Green for a bit. It’s amazing how you don’t feel like you’re in a city at all while you’re in there.

Jamie and I went to the Natural History Museum (aka the Dead Zoo).

We took a stroll down Grafton Street.

At one end was a busker who was actually quite good (some of them are not).

We rode back on the train to Jamie’s mum’s through patches of rain. Even rain is beautiful in Ireland.

So that was Tuesday through Thursday.
