In Dublin's Fair City

Last night I got back from my three day trip to Dublin. I had such a great time just wondering around the city, taking in the culture. Everywhere seemed full of life, especially Temple Bar, where there was live music in the bars 7 days a week, and musicians out on the streets playing regularly. 

Kilmainham Gaol - This is the prison where many of the political prisoners were held during the British occupation years. It is also the prison which was used to film the original ‘Italian Job’ and ‘In The Name Of The Father’, amongst others.

These casks are from the Guinness Storehouse, the centre of the world wide Guinness empire.

This was taken down one of the streets in Temple Bar. This entire area just breeds music, and is so full of life and energy. There are musicians everywhere and I got this photo of one such musician playing under a ‘No Busking’ sign.

In this last image, a woman enjoys a pint of Guinness in the Gravity Bar at the top of the Guinness Storehouse overlooking the whole of Dublin.
