Dublin: Finale

It was fine, warm and sunny in Dublin today, so a tram ride to Kilmainham was on the agenda. It left us off at the St James's stop and we walked about ten minutes to the old gaol.

Kilmainham Gaol is well preserved, apparently made of granite and over two centuries old. It must be seven or eight miles from Dublin city centre and would have been in the country in 1790.

After a fruit Pavlova and coffee in the café, we strolled back to the tram stop and made for Abbey Street, alighted and walked to Grafton Street, where We paid a visit to Bewley's for a bite of lunch.

I've taken a snap of O'Neill's Bar, which is at the corner of Suffolk Street and Church Lane. The carvery has a good selection of food here and the ambiance is buzzing.
