Dublin, Ireland

Saturday, February 18 through Saturday, February 24, 2006

Back to the Ireland index. To see all of the pictures taken during this trip, go here.


The back side of the Westin on College Street. On the right is Trinity College.

When visiting Dublin (or any location in Ireland for that matter), always visit the tourist information (TI) center. I suspect that the converted church is the largest TI in Ireland. The folks inside were very helpful.


I'm interested in how much Americana ends up all over the world. But the really interesting story is how each culture takes American icons and remakes them so they are fresh and vibrant within their own culture.

Another Mickey D's in more upscale clothing.

In many ways, Dublin is a study in contrasts. Old and New.
