Carly's just posted her pics from Dublin on Facebook, so I picked a few good ones for the blog...

Richard & Me in St Stephen's Green
The duck pond in St. Stephen's Green
Archway leading to Grafton Street
I love the dark wood & stained glass windows
And there's a giant Moose head on the wall above the bar--not a stag's head...
Dublin Castle gates
Our amazing room at Russell Court Hotel
Marks & Spencers
Molly Malone statue
The Four Courts
I love this bakery's name...
I tried to take a shot of James Joyce House of the Dead, and a Guinness truck got in the way...
It's where he set his story "The Dead"--I haven't read it, but when I saw "James Joyce House" on the sign, I thought it meant that it was where he lived...
Learning how to pour the perfect pint
Inside the Guinness Storehouse museum
I love the old advertisements!
That's a lot of Guinness!
The Gravity bar, with amazing views of the city
Parnell monument--Charles S. Parnell founded the Irish Parliamentary Party in 1882 and was a key figure in the movement for Irish nationalist movement
Live music in Temple Bar--we saw more later in the Old Storehouse pub, too. They were both amazing!
These public art works were really funny
I had to look up Larry Murphy--he's a suspected serial killer in Ireland
On a lighter note, I loved how all the shops have "Molly" as one of the most popular names...at last!
I love this vintage neon sign above the jewellers!
