Dublin, Ireland

Falmouth | Cork | Dublin EdinburghHamburg

Our third tour was in Dublin Ireland where we visited the Malahide Castle.  A fully appointed castle with all of the lavish furnishings of the time.  It had been lived in up until about 20 years ago.  Now the entire castle was open for tour.

Once again, we were not allowed to take pictures inside the castle, so here is Karen on the way out.

Which door should I use?


Out the door on the way to the cemetery

The left hand door allowed people access and the right hand door opened for carts and horses

After we left the Malahide castle we stopped at an Irish pub for an Irish Coffee.  I ordered mine without the coffee, it was a very good Irish Whiskey.  We were able to shop for about a half an hour where we bought a Celtic fashioned ring for Cheryl before we headed back along the coast to the cruise ship.
