A place to visit in Dublin

One of my favorite places in Dublin to explore is St Stephen’s Green. The park has been officially open to the public since the late 1800s. During the Easter Rising of 1916, some insurgents were stationed in the park. According to one of the signs, there was a halt to gunfire to allow the groundsman to feed the birds. Stephen’s Green is near Grafton street, a major shopping area. If you ever have the chance, I recommend taking a stroll.

    This is definitely on the “Want to Visit’ list! I have been seriously AWOL from your blog —figured out that I never added you to my Bloglovin’ feed when I changed stuff over. My HUGE bad. I am sorry. I am still out here in the blogosphere!!!

    Looks lovely!! I bet there is a lot of history there.

  6. Such a lovely park…I have heard that Dublin is really beautiful. Does it rain much there?

      It is beautiful and the rainfall, so far, is about the same amount as London. Except, sometimes it really pours, which it hardly ever did in London. However, that’s only happened a handful of times and luckily I was near a pub. I’m curious to see what the winter is like, with less daylight and colder temps. Will keep you posted.

    I always wanted to visit a place with so many birds like that…but I haven’t found one here.

    You have a lovely place
