On Irish Soil!

Finally, I arrived Monday morning and checked into my B&B. Very nice place, a bit farther from the Center City than I would prefer but worth it for the reasonable price. The first day was spent exploring the immediate neighborhood and sleeping. Today the B&B owner drove me to town to the Visitor's Center. I took the "Hop On Hop Off" bus tour to get my bearing. After that I walked and walked and walked to see as much as I could. Found a few Dublin Thrift Stores, and picked up my ready to "heat and eat" dinner for a couple of days. Marks and Spencer, big department store with a wonderful food court. So I'm set.
Took the local bus home and went to a neighborhood Pub, locally called
Gravediggers. The name comes from the location next door to an historic Cemetary. I had my first pint of Guiness and enjoyed talking with the locals. Such Fun.
Tomorrow I plan to go to the Botanical Gardens and the Cemetary...stay in my neighborhood.
Hope you enjoy the pics.
