And now: South of The River Liffey:
In DUBLIN’s fair city, The Krokket Team always pays a visit to:
I’d like to start out with a couple of words on Temple Bar. It’s the ultimate tourist-trap, and I don’t go there that much. If you are looking for the culture, the tradition, and genuine people, stay clear. You are more likely to meet your own nextdoor neighbour. And there’s a limit, even for me, of how many «by the dozen»-versions of «The Wild Rover» I can take.
That said, if you are going to spend a night out there with a couple of friends, go for the big, red bar, actually called The Temple Bar. We spent an evenig there, first time out.
And yes, we did have a good time. Presenting, with his permission:
Mr. Arild, (Captain, and Driver with The England Krokket Team).
And for food in this area, or wherever you are in Dublin: The Best Pizza in Town, is served at: The Bad Ass Cafe, Crown Alley, Temple Bar. Painted on their wall:
This place is closed! – Very Sad to say… http://www.dublintourist.com/details/bad_ass_cafe.shtml
(Or try the pizza in Hell, 36 Wexford Street. www.hell.ie)
The On-and-off-busstour is a good way of learnig your way around town. http://www.dublintours.net/?event=offer.detail&offerId=3175
Pay a visit to:
On a busy day, sightseeing and shopping, it’s always good to have a little rest. Visit one of the city parks, St. Stephen’s Green, Merrion Square or Iveagh Gardens. From St. St. Gr.:
For the more spiritual visitors, I recommend:
Christ Church Cathedral. http://cccdub.ie/
St. Patrick’s Cathedral. http://www.stpatrickscathedral.ie/index.aspx
(I have yet to see St. Michan’s Church).
Not forgetting, (being a Norwegian), some Viking history at:
The Dvblinia. http://www.dublinia.ie/
Along The Grand Canal
Visiting Patrick Kavanagh:
Visiting The Birthplace of George Bernard Shaw:
It’s more interesting, actually seeing this place yourself, than looking at my pictures.
Do pop by! 33 Synge Street.

I know, there’s a 110 places not mentioned. And a few I have seen, but don’t have a decent photo of. I may get them at some point.
