Random Things In Dublin

I take a lot of random pictures when I’m in a foreign place.  These pictures don’t necessarily go with other pictures, so (for the sake of ease) I’m going to lump them all into one post!  (Also I may or may not be trying to move things along so that I can get to my most recent trip some time before the next century.)

So, without further avail – here’s some stuff from Dublin!

There’s Celtic everywhere! 

...I understand the word "Street", and that's it...

The Spire is much more impressive if you see it up close and then see it from a distance (such as the Guinness Brewery).  Or vice-versa.

It's really big around at the bottom.  I can only imagine what the top is like.

The coffee places have a lot of heart.

I still get the warm-fuzzies when I look at this.

I love having pictures of theatres (for the memories), but I always feel like I’m breaking the rules – even if everyone else is doing it.

My sister and I saw “The Plough and The Stars” by Sean O’Casey in the Abbey Theatre (where the play first premiered in 1926).  Thankfully there were no riots this time.

One block away from the theatre was a pub called “Plough”, which was hilarious.  It would have been even better if there was another pub called “Stars” right next to it.

I am very easily amused.

We ate at Leo Burdock, the famous fish and chips place.  An order of fish and chips was enough for the 2 of us to share.  We took our order to a nearby area where we could sit and eat (there’s no room inside to eat).  Thankfully the weather was nice.

I remember that I liked their chips and the fish was good, too – but mostly that it was a lot of food.

We also ate at Yo! Sushi, which is the most awesome thing ever a conveyor belt sushi restaurant.  The price you pay depends on what colour plate the food is on.  We went on “Blue Monday”, when most of their plates were Blue (one of their cheapest prices).  It was fun/interesting.

Why are there no pictures of the food inside?  Because I'm an idiot.

I’ve also learned that Dublin, which can be very crowded and full of tourists, can also be very magical.

No lie, a friend asked me if I'd taken this picture in Narnia.
