  1. Ah, SV, you’ve swept me back to ‘my Dublin,’ especially the pics of Halfpenny Bridge and Front Gate, Trinity. Lovely post!

  2. I love our Georgian buildings, in particular. What wonderful workmanship.Great photos. Thank you!

  3. Love the Bank Bar in Dame Street, the interior is terrific as well. Where is that odd sliver of building hemmed in by the two Georgian blocks?

    • Have been in that bar – it is very nice indeed! That narrow building is next to Budget Travel that sits on the corner of Liffey Street and Bachelor’s Walk, so looking from south of the river,it is just to the right of the Ha’penny Bridge. Never noticed it before – the joys of a traffic free Sunday morning. Thanks for visiting!

  4. The marble stairway with brass bannister in photos 4 and 5 is stunning. What incredible workmanship.

    • The staircase is in the National Library of Ireland. I particularly liked this curved part with the beautiful marble and brass. The exterior of the building is similar to the National Museum of Ireland, the domed building pictured – one is directly across the courtyard from the other. They date from the late 19th Century. Thank you for your comment and I am glad you liked the stairs!

  5. As you know, I love postcards… looks to be a beautiful place…

  6. Fascinating and beautiful – very well captured… 🙂

  7. I used to collect postcards. These are wonderful! You see beauty all around you. Dublin is on my list of places to visit.

  8. Kerry O'Gorman

    Love to see these places of my memories. Dublin can be a lovely city. My father remarked when we saw the statue of Molly Malone….”Lordy! I had no idea she was so well endowed!”

    • Hi Kerry – and well endowed she is! You would fear for her in cold weather! She is due to be moved with her cart to another location when the tram line is extended.I am not sure where she will end up!. I was disappointed recently to discover that she is a fictional character as I had always thought she was a real Dublin fish seller who contacted syphilis and died at a young age. Apparently this is fiction. Struggling to cope with this new information! Dublin can indeed be a great place and | hope you get to return! Thank you for your comment – much appreciated! A

  9. Oh… so beautiful. All I could say as scrolled through them was “Oh… look at that… Oh look at that…” continuously 😯
