Dublin through my eyes.

We arrived at Dublin on a freezing, wet summer day in 2010. Probably, it was a chilly summer in Dublin that year, or we just feel the cold more as we’ve always lived in tropical weather. One thing is for sure, the drizzling never stopped during our short stay. The saying about the Irish weather  ‘The usual way to tell the difference between winter and summer in Ireland is, to measure the temperature of rain’ may, in fact, be true as well. The cold weather didn’t stop us seeing Dublin. We bought tickets for the bus, Hop-on-Hop-off from the red bus operator. There was another bus company providing the same service as well. The advantage of choosing Hop-on-Hop-off bus is, it gives the opportunity and freedom to commute as you wish.You chose what to see and how long you’ll take to explore a place and hop-on to the bus again, and decide where to get off the bus. I like the freedom to move at my pace, spend as long as I wish in a certain place. So a Hop-on-Hop-off bus ticket, valid for two or three days is the ideal choice for me while discovering a new city. Those Hop-onHop-off buses are equipped with headphones, the narrations on board are informative and recorded in several languages. The bus we were on passed St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral, and The famous Guinness Store House, Central Park, The River Liffey, Georgian Square and the Central Park  and many more places of interest. We got down to places that were of interest to us and boarded the bus again while shivering,  to go  to the next attraction. In the end, it was worth being outdoors during the wintry weather.
