Falmouth
Port Rating: Not Rated

We walked up the hill and toured the great, historic, Pendennis Castle - learned the history of the Castle - and toured up and down the olde building. Great tour guide. Was interested to learn of how the Americans helped defend this port in WWII. The lunch options at the Castle included a quich - type meal that was created by the "girls" of Falmouth for the soldiers stationed there in WWI. It was very tasty. The views from the Castle were absolutely inspiring.

The architecture of the town continued to interest me - so different from what we see in the USA.

Dublin is an incredible city with very much to see. We went on an off and on bus tour - and ended up at the old Kilmainham Gaol. There we had an incredible tour and lesson in Irish history. It has incarcerated both criminals and political prisoners. It is a must-see place for those who are interested in the political history of Ireland.

There is a lot to see in Dublin, and we should have allowed more time in this place. The light rail system has a stop within 5 minutes walking distance of where we disembarked from our ship.

We took an 'off and on' bus tour of the city. Our favorite experience - a tour - was of an old jail - the Kilmainham Gaol (Irish: Príosún Chill Mhaighnean), built in 1796; now a museum. It has been run since the mid-1980s by the Office of Public Works (OPW), an Irish government agency. Kilmainham Gaol played an important part in Irish history, as many leaders of Irish rebellions were imprisoned and some executed in the prison by the British and in 1923 by the Irish Free State Irish history was for us - and important focus in this tour.

We stayed in a hotel in Temple Bar on Fleet Street -- "Fleet Street Hotel." The breakfast at the hotel was a very complete and good one.

The Temple Bar area was invigorating, young, and full of Irish history. I suspect people were out into the wee hours of the night (on a Thursday!) but we went to bed. We enjoyed a great Irish dinner at a pub - and enjoyed true Irish musicians/singers. This area is worth second, third, and beyond visits.
