Delightfully Dashing Dublin

August 26, 2017

It was easy to fall in love with Dublin. The Liffey River, wide streets brightened with large baskets of colourful summer flowers, wonderful architecture and helpful, friendly people made our stay there extra special.

The best thing we could have done to get our bearings was to use the Hop-on, Hop-off bus facility – and from the top story, of course.

Beautiful tiered baskets of flowers are found everywhere in Dublin.
