Ireland - Sunday 19 July

After having a bit of a wander in Dublin in the morning, we met up with the Insight Tour Guide and fellow travellers and went for a bit of a tour of Dublin highlights in the mid-afternoon. We were a bit disappointed because we understood that this drive included a visit to the Guinness Brewery and Trinity College but we simply went past them. Stops included St Patricks Cathedral (pictured) and Phoenix Park, a huge enclosed park of over 1700 acres featuring a zoo, cricket, rugby, soccer, hurling, polo and gaelic football grounds. There are also lots of grassland and parks which support a considerable herd of wild red deer.
This second photograph is from the park looking over Dublin to the Wicklow Mountains.
