Temple Bar

Temple Bar, originally uploaded by Shiny Things.

It’s been a gloomy couple of days in Dublin, so there’s not a lot of good photos in the collection. This is a rather nice one, though - looking down a laneway toward Temple Bar, Dublin’s entertainment district and tourist trap.

As tourist traps go, though, it’s a pretty good one. The obligatory Irish pubs (although at €5.50 for a pint of Guinness, they ain’t cheap), a bunch of interesting shops, some great little restaurants - and you can even get a good cup of coffee if you know where to look.

I like this town.
