This B&B was a 10 minute bus ride outside of downtown Dublin, meaning it was quiet! The best thing about the B&B was the hosts - Bernie and PJ. We were welcomed on arrival with tea and were given a made to order hearty Irish breakfast each morning accompanied by smiles, stories and helpful tips and advice about where to go and what to see.

We then explored the Cathedrals of Dublin, they may all look the same everywhere in Europe but you can’t go to a city without ticking it off your list. St Christ Church and St Patrick’s were the ones we visited. We strolled through the Dublin botanical gardens, and went into Dublin’s historical museum. The museum had ...

One could be forgiven for worrying about a possible potato famine! We "hopped" onto one of the red buses and listened to the "canned" history of the different areas we were travelling through. We "hopped" off at St Patrick's Cathedral, which is Ireland's largest church, built beside a sacred ...
... people have used that same place of worship for over 900 years. The Cathedral itself is beautiful, and being a Protestant church, is magnificent but not overblown. I found it to be one of the more aesthetically pleasing cathedrals I've visited. One of the big attractions of Christ Church is the tomb of Strongbow, leader of the Norman invasion of Ireland.
From Christ Church it's a short walk down one of Dublin's few hills to St Patrick's Cathedral. ...
