From the Dublin Diary – 2008

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It is exhilarating to be in a space where the rawness of nature is untouched and the spirit of life immaculate.  Dublin in Ireland is an effervescent example.  Placed about 13 hours from Bangalore if flying via London, Dublin is a natural cradle that welcomes with dew filled arms and petal laden paths.  Tender, serene and visually spectacular.

If nature is a language, Dublin is a golden word.

Several escapades so randomly and generously spread out, you will wonder if you can ever absorb enough of the sights. From Glenda-lough – Glen of Two Lakes to the Powerscourt Gardens, nature is on a giving spree.  You cannot process such bits of visuals thrown at you.  You sure can be struck with awe!

Some trivia I picked up when around:

  1. Guinness is the national drink of Ireland! (another trivia is that a mug of that dark thing can sway you nice!)
  2. Potato is the national vegetable (if there is such a thing!).  Being a vegetarian, I found it in anything I asked for.
  3. Mel Gibson’s Braveheart was shot on location around Glendalough mountains.  Scenic perfection!
Stay: Clontarf Castle – Unashamedly luxurious. A complete statement of profuse hospitality. Great place.
Eateries: The couple of Indian food joints alongside the backwaters of Business Point, Dublin.
Do not miss:  The Temple Bar at city center.  Tip: Do not look for Gods, it’s mostly the drink of the Lords, you will find.

    I have a T-Shirt written ‘Guinness’ on it given by one of my friend from Dublin which tempted me to try the beer .. but after a sip I couldn’t enjoy it any more 🙂
    May be, it will taste better in Dublin .. hopefully someday!!
