Dublin

We arrived at Dublin International past noon on Wednesday. After settling in our room at the Cassidy Hotel on Sráid Uí Chonaill Uachtarach (O’Connell Street Upper), we walked up and down some of the streets in search of ghrafadh (grub). We bought some souvenirs and walked some more on Sráid Anraí (Henry Street).

After a short break back at the hotel (I had to send postcards out in the morning – yeah, Rena), we took to the streets once more in search of dinner. We crossed a footbridge over the River Liffey into the Temple Bar district and found the night life. And yes, we were still just looking for dinner. We settled on the Old Storehouse on Crown Alley, partly because of the inviting menu posted outside, and partly because of the music playing inside.

 

 

After a great dinner, which I forgot to take a picture of (mo leithscéal – my apologies), we headed back to the hotel. By the way, it was the Guinness & Beef Stew I posted about on Facebook. Here’s the link to the recipe. I would love to make it myself, but I have to find Guinness Foreign Stout. If you can help me find some, you’ll get to taste my first try.

We were taking the train to Wicklow in the morning and staying at the home of friends of Fr. Kerry.
