Ireland — Dublin; Trinity College Dublin


Trinity College Dublin

Within easy walking distance of our accommodations at Hotel Bloom was the historic Trinity College Dublin. Here Ursula was most interested in visiting the famous Book of Kells, which you’ll see on Wednesday. As for today, we’re going to explore the grounds of the college. Let’s start with the Campanile bell tower in heart of the college:

I had a lot of fun photographing this college, as the buildings are older than even I am:

Ireland — Day 2 in Dublin; More St. Patrick’s Images


St. Patrick’s Cathedral

St. Patrick’s Cathedral, as you may have noticed on Monday’s article, is quite impressive. But today prepare to be awed. Everything in the interior is absolute eye (and camera) candy, clear down to the tiled floor:

Let’s zoom in a bit and take a look at the detail clear down to the engraving in the tile:

The stained glass is exquisite:
