Dublin
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

It was a ten minute ride from the dock to the bus stop on Kildare St., in front of the National Library. This was a convenient location, just a few minutes walk from some of our favorite sights: Trinity College (with very long lines on this sunny Saturday for the Book of Kells), Grafton St. (packed with international and local visitors, and reminiscent of Fifth Avenue in New York or Michigan Avenue in Chicago), Temple Bar (a cobblestoned nightlife center, quiet by day), Merrion Square (gorgeous town houses), and St. Stephen's Green. The Molly Malone statue near O'Connell bridge is clearly intended as a tourist magnet but on our visit, a family band (mostly kids) were playing traditional Irish music. Speaking of which, there are a few stores in Dublin that still sell CDs, Tower Records on Wicklow St., a half-block from Grafton St., has a good supply of locally produced Celtic music CDs that you'd have to buy on-line anywhere else. Our only problem in Dublin was finding a place to eat lunch, since every restaurant within a few hundred yards of the Liffey was crowded, outrageously expensive, or dealing with health issues (thawing frozen chicken in the same display case with the stuff going into the next sandwich).
