Wow, great pics indeed!



But, but....O'Connell Street has the tallest and most awesome lightning conductor in the world in fairness

Cheers Odlum. These are pretty much the same pics as I have in the Irish forum, but they're all themed together!

O'Connell street is great, but I think I picked a bad day for my most recent visit (didn't take any pictures.) Parked the car up on Talbot Street, and headed down to O'Connell from there.
I don't know now; maybe I was just unlucky but the place was packed to the rafters (literally) with junkies and cars/buses/taxis etc that made it impossible to take pictures.

Maybe if they moved the meth clinics out of the city-centre it would improve things a bit around there!

O'Connell Street is a big street - I have never had any problems there myself. Maybe it was just an "off" day? It's a very busy street at the best of times. The Northern end does need a bit of work - your right there.

Can't say I'd noticed it being so bad before (hadn't been there in a while), so it prob was an off day. I'll have to head back again. It def has some of the best architecture in Dublin, but is really hard to capture.

College Green, which prob has the most important architecture in the city is also impossible to capture due to traffic.

I think I may be just a little harsh on the city some times!

lol I didn't see that part of your post. The northside doesn't need defending! It has the best thing Dublin has to offer; magnificent views of the southside...


Seriously though, standing on the top of howth head on a clear day = bliss.

Thanks for the compliment Bosorcelli. I can't exactly say Dublin's a beautful city, but it has its charms if you're into music/literature/history and drinking!

Indeed, but the urban grit that so defines Dublin in many areas is absent in these pics.

Indeed. Dublin doesn't look dirty on your pics. It looks great!
Fantastic pics from your mobile phone! And a good idea to give them that different frames in your last serial.
I remember my cycle-trip through Western Ireland years ago, and people there are among the friendliest on earth. Glad to here they're nice in the capital as well.
