Our original plan this morning had been to go on a walking tour of the city. We got to the meeting place for the walking tour to begin and were informed by someone that the tour guide had an asthma attack, so it was cancelled....blast! Blast #2....the Dublin castle was closed. Too bad, we had heard that it was pretty amazing.
We did see this really cool gate outside in the gardens though...
Next we wandered by St. Patricks Cathedral. We decided not to pay to go inside...how do you charge to go into a house of God. Renee had gone to church there on Sunday. She said they just covered up the gift shop with sheets....weird.
Out in the courtyard of the cathedral is the burial place of James Joyce, a famous Irish writer best known for writing "Ulysses"
We continued walking and came across their city park. Incredible!!! It is almost sad to see such a beautiful place where it rains the majority of the year. There were plenty of people out enjoying it today though. Plenty of swans and ducks out too. So fantastic!
