    Well worth a trip to visit this old church. It was interesting to see the actual crypts of Irish autocracy and members of the rebellion alike. What make trip worthwhile was our guide who gave just the perfect amount of humor mixed in with a bit of history. Fascinating to learns how caskets arranged in crypts and how mummies preserved naturally.

    Trams and buses run along the street. We bought our Leap Card from the TFI office here. Other notable features include the historic GPO museum and futuristic Spire monument.

    There was a service about to start, so we did not hang around. It is nice to see a church full of worshippers and not tourists, and given its location off the tourist trail, that is exactly how this particular one seems to work. It is quite large, with pews not seats, but rather on the dark side I thought.

    Lovely Street with Arnotts being the highlight. Plenty of shops to choose from but unfortunately too hot to shop on one of the hottest days of the year in Dublin.

    Smithfield Square is unrecognisable from what it was before the rejuvenation for the 21st century. I’m in the motor industry and I remember going to the Corporation Weight Bridge at the top of the square to get vans weighted to get them taxed. Today the old businesses and scrapyards are gone and it’s a beautiful cosmopolitan area with tourist attractions bars, restaurants, museums and a cinema plus lots of apartments

    Our tour with Eamonn from ChaperoneVIP Private Tours (search on TripAdvisor) to Arbor Hill Cemetery was just fantastic. What amazes me is that this isn't on the radar as a great site to visit. Thanks to Eamonn we visited and had a great explanation of what this site is really all about. I encourage everyone to read up, and see why this cemetery is a real focal point to the 1916 Easter uprising. This is where President Kennedy laid a wreath and scandalized some by calling attention to, and honoring the heros laid here.

    It is quiet during the day now around Smithfield Chimney and Smithfield Market due to the decimation of our tourist industry due to
    Covid 19. The Chimney and the Jameson museum are closed due to restrictions. The area was rejuvenated for the 21st century and is a credit to Dublin City Council.
    But it is a living area too and a lovely place to live close to the river and city centre.

    This is an important civic building at the head of one of the best preserved Georgian streets in North Dublin. The exterior of grey stone is imposing and impressive. Pleasant grounds have benches to rest on as you take a break from your walk around the city.

    Coming off Henry St is small market, that seems to be getting smaller, however, there are flower stalls and others quite nice ones but needs refurbishment.

    Another great and iconic Dublin view and building. 1790’s domed court building. Columns. Perfect symmetry.

    This small garden is situated over the bridge from Heuston Train Station. Dublin. I would liken it to an oasis in the middle of a busy hotel guesthouse district.

    Come sit awhile and listen to the world go by. Known as The Croppy Acre.

    I like the place they are, it`s well located. Not to tourists, but to mingle with the city. They are ladies talking, it could be any of us.

    We went on Culture Night, when it was open to the public. There isn't much there, and it's rather hard to find. But, if you find yourself in the area, it might be nice to pop in, if they're open. The staff were very friendly. There were signs around the room explaining the architecture and use of the abbey.

    A sturdy, wide, granite bridge, dealing with traffic and pedestrians. Just next to it you also have a raised railway bridge.
