There is so much to see in Dublin. Mostly we've been walking all around town but then decided to get the two-day pass for the 'Hop-on-Hop-off' bus which was well worth it. You get a guided tour all around the city which enabled us to cover more ground.

Here are few more highlights:

We went to Trinity College Library to see The Book of Kells exhibition, and the Long Room (a must-see. Sorry my pictures don't do it justice):

This is at the Garden of Remembrance which is a memorial garden in Dublin dedicated to "all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom".

Then stopped at a cute, eclectic pub/restaurant 'Baker's'

For a picnic lunch, we stopped at Phoenix park, one of the largest walled city parks in all of Europe. The Wellington Testimonial obelisk just inside the park is 62 meters high (203 ft.)

Then we stopped by the free Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), where there is also a beautiful formal garden we were quite taken with.
