Book of Kells   Leave a comment

Went to Trinity College Friday morning to see the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the four Gospels created by Celtic monks around 800 A.D. It is a masterpiece of calligraphy and is Ireland’s finest national treasure (besides O’Connor’s pub in Doolin). Then to the Long Room of the Old Library, which looked like a scene out of Harry Potter. Absolutely amazing.

Afterwards we had a stop at the museum for fun with stuffed animals. From beetles to whales, they had it all.

Next, off for a pint and some lunch to balance out our cultural morning.

Ragin’ Cajuns   1 comment

I know you have all been waiting for this; the Ragin’ Cajuns sweatshirt has made an appearance. And what happened shortly after we hit the street?? Somebody yells to Lindsay… "Ragin’ Cajun" Some nice folks from Baton Rouge and New Orleans chatted it up with us. The saga of the sweatshirt continues…

Thursday Afternoon   1 comment

Drove to Dublin this afternoon not knowing what to expect. Alas, we have traded our cows and sheep for tails and tophat. We are staying at The Westbury (a Mother’s Day gift from Lindsay). Dublin has old world charm, and the main thoroughfare, Grafton Street, is pedestrian only, which makes it easier to get to Hermès and Louis Vuitton.

We found a great little pub, McDaids, which we will visit again before we leave town. Dinner was at Trocadero, a wonderful restaurant recommended by our cabbie. Lindsay had the filet mignon, and I opted for the rack of lamb (baaaaa). Fabulous! I thought Lindsay was going to take the garlic butter home.

Exploring more of Dublin tomorrow.
