...after a 36 hour adventure involving "planes, trains and automobiles" I'm now back home tired but happy after my brief but busy overnight stay in the suburbs of Dublin with, as ever, my faithful travelling companion.
Before we reached the hotel there was just some time for a brief stop in Dublin city centre and a stroll down O'Connell Street and over the bridge to the other end of town. It was a real trip down memory lane as I hadn't visited Dublin since 1995.
It was very obvious that in the 13 years that have passed, the city has become a truly international tourist destination. It's still as youthful, lively and buzzing as I remember it, and we must go back again - hopefully we won't wait another 13 years!
I am extremely tired though, so no more posts tonight. Normal service will return tomorrow.
