Posts Tagged ‘people and places of Dublin’

Dublin is one of my favourite places to visit. Its quirky, and colourful albeit dirty and home to one of my least favourite aspects of street life; the Dublin oyster ๐Ÿคฎ

But I love the street art and the humour – the Irish are adept at poking fun at themselves, and that is a very attractive trait.

Dublinโ€™s ability to poke fun at itself

Amongst others, you’ve got; Molly Malone – The Tart with the Cart. The Hats with the Bags. The Stilleto in the Ghetto, the Queer with the Leer, the Ace with the Base.

The Hags with the bags

The Ace with the Base

I captured these scenes while in Ireland for my sister’s 50th birthday ๐ŸŽ‚ ๐Ÿฅณ ; a fun and unexpected trip.

Temple Bar – preparing for Christmas in October ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช
Famous figures- James Joyce
The King’s Inn – where James Joyce frequented
Accommodation and traditional Irish music are not a good combination for a peaceful night’s sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด
How to stand out in a crowd!!! Can’t imagine what shade of yellow this is described as
Pink and Blue will never do…
Yup. We got it! It’s….Korky’s
Down a side alley, The Icon Walk in Bedford Lane, is this gorgeous confection of coloured glass (or plastic)

You may think that Dublin is dull and grey, but you would be mistaken.

And amongst the garish, a more sedate type of street art.

We actually stayed in Temple Bar, which as it turned out wasn’t too noisy, but then I’d never seen it so underpopulated…it’s usually heaving, day and night. I guess Covid-19 is still keeping patrons at bay.

In the thick of it…Temple Bar looking rather empty

I’ll share another post in a few days, featuring some of Dublin/Ireland’s people and history ..
