Friday in Dublin

It's raining!

Today I started my tour of Dublin looking for the the Castle that was is suppose to be across the street from hotel. I have walked by where it is suppose to be according to my map... I see the City Hall.... street.... more buildings... but no Castle. You would think an entire Castle would be hard to miss!! So today I was determined to find it!! But first - COFFEE!! The man at the front desk directed me to an awesome coffee shop by day...pub by night 90_IMG_0934.jpg90_IMG_0933.jpg90_IMG_0932.jpg90_IMG_0931.jpg90_IMG_0930.jpg

After an amazing Cafe Latte I headed out on my quest! I walked from my hotel to City Hall... no castle! Took a tour of City Hall....

and when I came out this time -- I decided to walk down this dead end street and take a look around --- Sure enough -- the Castle was hidden behind the buildings!! I found this sign
