Trip to Dublin


On Friday, we took at day trip to Howth (Hoe-th), a charming seaside fishing town, east of Central Dublin. Excellent seafood, so many colorful front doors, and lots and lots of ultramarine blue! 

The next day we went to Bray, a beachy seaside village, at the opposite end of the line from Howth. It was rainy and I wore the wrong shoes. My meshy trainers became a soggy disaster pretty quickly, but I still managed to get a few nice pics before we headed back in to Dublin. On Sunday we traveled by ferry from Dublin to Holyhead, Wales. Then got on a train to Euston London. What a lovely way to get around! 

Dublin Food:

We ate at two noteworthy restaurants in Dublin, both were tapas places- go figure! 

Viva in Portobello neighborhood. Wonderful owners and staff, excellent food! We got to enjoy live Flamenco guitar music, which they have on Thursdays & Saturdays. It was magical. 

Salamanca, near the Temple Bar area. Very busy, kinda loud, but excellent food. We got a table in the back near the fireplace where it marginally quieter and extra romantic.
