Temple Bar area of Dublin

This is one of my most cherished photo's of Dublin.  This is the taken on Anglesea St. and Dame St. is seen at the end.  I love it because of the sun just beginning to throw her soft glow over the city.  On the right is the infamous Blooms Hotel where Joe and I stayed for several days,  having given up trying to drive around Ireland.

In the guide book to Ireland we purchased before traveling overseas the building to the left is featured with the comment, "understatement is not a characteristic of Temple Bar".

The cobblestone streets, the bicycles, the iron rails, the vibrant color.....I want to go back.

This is indeed one of your best photos of Ireland, but I loved them all. Through your visit there, I was able to learn a lot about the country which I didn't know. Thanks!....Jon

Gotta agree with Nikki, it's so clean.  And I remember your entry on Temple Bar and what a grand time you had there.  Can't blame you for being sick for the Emerald Isles.
