Dublin’s Fair City~


Is really so pretty!

The historic old pubs are lovely,

and fun to explore,

on a good, old-fashioned Irish pub-crawl.

You are guaranteed to make friends because the people are warm, friendly, and often just a tad tipsy!

Dublin is a vibrant, colorful city,

justifiably proud,

of its artistic and literary history.

I am still home at The Holler, but it’s cheers to you from beautiful Dublin~

  2. Your pictures and travels never fail to amaze me Cindy! You have such an eye for the most unusual sights. Such a treat….I may not comment very often, but I always enjoy your posts.

  3. Loved Dublin when we visited, even though it was many years ago. The Irish hospitality and food was excellent.
    That was the trip where Hubby’s holdall went on its holidays without him as it got loaded with the luggage of a departing party and had to be returned to the hotel by taxi from Cork!

    • Oh my gosh. I live in dread of this happening. When we went to Antarctica, the airlines lost a man’s luggage. He was easy to recognize because he wore the same clothes everyday and they were not suitable for Antarctica. It is a testament to Ireland’s charms, and your husband’s fortitude, that you both still had a wonderful time and retain positive memories.

      • We found it highly amusing at so many people trying to rectify the problem, though saying his bag contained his medication may have had a lot to do with it. We could not fault the service, and the hotel was spotless. Breakfast was amazing. We were only there for three days, but it thoroughy enjoyed it, especially the pub entertainment, even though we are not drinkers, we could still listen outside. Wonderful.

  4. Such captivating colors! Never been there, but now I wish. And I should have known. After all, My Dear is Irish as they come — McDonough. I was captivated 55 years ago, and happily still am.

  5. I’m just pea-green with envy, Cindy — Dublin is exactly where I intend to visit again, as soon as I have the chance!! Gorgeous photos of a warm and lovely city!

    • It is odd isn’t it. No matter how much one travels, the bucket list never gets shorter because with every place you tick off, there is another where you say, “Oh we must go back and see more!”
      Ireland is definitely such a place.

  6. You are such an inspiration Cindy with your amazing photos and light spirit. I’ve not been to Ireland, but am drawn to it time and again. Maybe Aer Lingus via Dublin for my next visit home to Scotland ☺️

  7. So much color!! I was in Dublin a few years ago with my daughter– and you’ve made me want to go back! Did you go to the old school Natural History Museum?? That was our favorite. Beautiul Cindy! hugs!

  8. Hi Cindy
    Hello everyone
    I just totally loved the pictures, full of life and positivity. I belong to a place which is known for its beauty all over the world, i.e Kashmir Valley. Seeing natural beauty on pictures doesn’t fascinate me at all because i have grown up seeing that all live.
    Talking about the pictures you uploaded, they are just amazing, i can feel positivity in them, all the colours together, with no negativity, its just awesome.

    • Awww, lovely to meet you and thank you for such very kind words. They are much appreciated. My mother spent time in Kashmir on sabbatical when I was in graduate school. I did a post on her travels and photos, and I still have the glorious Kashmir boxes she brought back for me, and some of the exquisite saris and embroidery. I know from her photos that Kashmir is as beautiful as you describe. My daughter went to India as well during graduate school. And there is a charm on my grandmother’s charm bracelet from her travels, from India, of an Indian buffalo with baskets. I am the only female in my three generations of females, who has not been to India. I plan to remedy this, soon.

  9. Thats quiet interesting to jear that your some of your family members have been here. I am sure they must have enjoyed it here, as the people here are quite warm and welcoming. I hope you also get a chance to visit my place.
