Ireland, day 12

As our plane would leave in the afternoon, we spend some time in Dublin.

It is a big city.

With a huge postoffice.

Many statues as this one of James Joyce (1882-1941) the famous Irish writer of "Ulysses".

The entrance to the National Library of Ireland with an old photo showing how it looked long ago. The gate at the left hadn't changed a bit.

We had a look inside at the beautiful domed reading room, no photo's allowed, so you have to do it with this display outside.

And then off to Amsterdam.

I had a window seat and had a good look at the greenhouses for fruit, flowers and vegetables in our country.

And a not so crowdy highway.
So and now back to normal again, I hope you enjoyed my tour as much as I did.

  1. I have thoroughly enjoyed your trip. How fun to see the old pictures in front of the library. Even though the building has remained the same, our fashions have certainly changed. Maybe we could have stopped somewhere in between?
    Where to next? In am ready!

  2. Dat was inderdaad een prachtige reis en ik vind Ierland echt mooi. Fijne reportage heb je ervan gemaakt.

  3. The Library was stunning and I loved your tour. Thank you for virtually giving us a grand tour. Cheers and have a nice day :)

  4. Jullie hebben heel veel mooie dingen gezien!

  5. I enjoyed every bit of the tour. I had a thought too...you could visit all the great libraries of Europe. Now wouldn't that be fun?

  6. A city I must see for myself someday. Beautiful shots throughout this tour of Ireland!

  7. Oh Marianne, I have loved all your posts on Ireland! I hate to see it come to an end. Thanks for sharing.

  8. On my list of countries to visit - Ireland.
    Love the library and I am looking forward to going to this beautiful country, someday soon.
    Glad you had a great time!
    Peace :)

  9. Dearest Marianne,
    Glad you got to be inside this huge reading room of the National Library of Ireland!
    Often wen we landed those greenhouses were lit, in the early morning when there was no daylight yet; even more impressive looking.
    Lovely photos as usual.

  10. You had a very enjoyable trip and so did I.

  11. The tour was great!!!
    That reading room is incredible. Wow.
    btw, they did change the gate. They made the opening larger to accommodate the crowds and larger people!
