So Dublin itself kept surprising us with how small it is compared to Montreal. We would walk everywhere and really, the furthest was a couple of kilometers! It was a great place to walk, and we did a lot of touristy things, although Dublin Castle was closed the day we wanted to go for the Queen's visit. I think Trinity College was closed as well, so we didn't get to see the Long Room. See below for what we missed!

So I didn't end up bringing the big camera, just my point and shoot, but that worked out in the end since it fit nicely in my pocket and is actually a great little camera. I took a lot of photos, we gave ourselves the challenge of getting over 400 photos and videos, and we succeeded! But no worries, only a few will be going up!
Dublin had lots of great architecture and tons of green spaces! Such a nice place to visit. I am not sure if I would live there, it is rather expensive! So what follows will be a couple of photos from our trip. It was a lovely place to wander around in, and I am eager to go on more trips now!

|St. Patrick's Cathedral, isn't it just beautiful?|

|Wicklow Mountains, that peak is Sugarloaf|
|Just a great juxtaposition of old and new in Dublin, plus, I love the red door|
|The entrance to the Museum of Modern Art, ah the irony!|
