The St Stephens mall had an Irish shop so we each had to pick up a t-shirt or two. After a bit of shopping, we wandered the streets, listened to buskers and found a tiny pub with a big deck for lunch.
This city has bridges across the River Liffey for as far as the eye can see - according to a google search there are between 17 and 21. This one is called Ha'Penny bridge.
The wine we've had over the last few days is served by the glass in these tiny bottles.
In wandering around the busy cobble streets we came upon ancient churches, museums and all kinds of interesting areas tucked away in alleys and side streets. In many ways that's what makes Dublin endearing - the vibe is relaxed, the music infectious and the food plentiful. Outside our hotel is painted like a tie-dye t-shirt with mural art - pretty cool, not something the hotel chains are likely to do in Saskatoon! We had supper at an another great Italian restaurant and will again end the night listening to traditional music in the pub downstairs.
