My entry door to O'Donnell, with bikes on the side.
While driving around Dublin, Eugene took me up into Phoenix Park where has a huge memoral obelisk for the Duke of Wellington, a native of Ireland. We drove past that onto Wellington Road and this overlook looking to the south over the War Memorial Gardens where both Queen Elizabeth and Barack Obama have visited in recent years.
Eugene Curran, a great tour guide and native to Dublin, showing me the stockade the Brits built, overlooking Dublin....on Wellington Road . After this he drove me by the Guiness Brewery south of the Liffy and through amazing Georgian 4 story building neighborhoods, when Dublin was built to be the second city of the Empire in the 1700's. We had a local dinner north of the Liffy at Ely brasserie
Quite the day, introduction to Ireland !
