Then on to Phoenix Park, reputed to be the oldest municipal park in Europe. We saw, amongst other things, the huge Wellington monument (British built of course), the zoo, the president's palace, the US Embassy (in the middle of the park!), and the spot where more than 1/3 of Ireland's population turned up to watch Pope John Paul II celebrate mass (and still they didn't get a cathedral)
Walked all the way back down the Liffey River past the courts to the city where we had fish and chips in a pub for tea. Calculated that we walked around 12 km today.
Dublin goes onto the list of cities I'd love to come back to. Lots of history and pride, friendly people, decent infrastructure and reasonable prices. The Big Mac index is about AU$8.50, though other food seems quite reasonably priced.
