Travels in Dublin – Day 3

Thursday 28th June

This morning was to be our last in Dublin and started with a trip to Dvblinia and the Viking World situated near to Christ Church Cathedral.

Dublin began life as a Viking settlement and it is fitting that it is next door to the city’s oldest cathedral which was founded in 1038 by the Norse King Sitrik Silkenbeard.  The exhibition is well set out with traditional displays, computer graphics and descriptions of the archaeology used to uncover the artefacts housed there.

Then after a hearty lunch at O’Shea’s Merchant pub and restaurant by the River Liffey we headed to the airport for the flight home.

Dublin is a vibrant multicultural city combining the traditional with the modern exceptionally well.  It is a delightful city to visit.
