We ate somewhere different every meal and never once came across an Irish person they were all Eastern European I felt we had got off at the wrong airport.
We went on the gravediggers ghost tour and it was a hilarious evening. There were folk from Dublin, New York and Canada. The story tellers were witty and most of the stories were based on fact. A lot of the stories based around the time of the plague. We visited old sites around Dublin such as a grave yard and prison. Many yarns told about the body snatchers and a ghoulish drink from a pub that dates back to 1800s and still run by the same family.
We did a lot of walking around St Stephens green and Merrion Square. On the square is a Georgian House museum. It was very cheap and very interesting audio visual before you do the self guided tour. I am not a shopper as many of you know but we took an afternoon to Kildare village. I enjoyed the Cath Kidston shop and we got a Jamie Oliver milk pan but the other designer shops were way above our budget even with the major discount.
The museums are all free. We took a quick walk around the Natural History museum which hasn't changed in about 200yrs.the upper parts were closed so took us less than an hour. We spent a little longer in the archaeological museum but didn't make it to the art galleries much to Jonathan's delight.
