Dublin DUB Dublin, Ireland Ireland trip reports

Ireland walks

St. Patrick’s Day today and I will be away from my computer most of this day. Here are articles from my November-December 2014 trip to Dublin and Athlone, Ireland where I stayed at Radisson Blu hotels. The most memorable part of the trip for me was a day walking the Bray to Greystones cliff walk in County Wicklow.

Here is the series of my articles from that trip.

I have many travel stories from Ireland from two summer trips in 1997 and 1998 when I spent eight weeks touring the country. Those stories are written in travel journals and I have not published any online, except for one I published in 2013 about the rough times in Northern Ireland summer 1997.

    @Ric, I loved these posts!! We took the DART from Dublin and did the walk from Booterstown to the Joyce Tower thanks to your post. It was the end of November, weather ranged from sunny to cloudy, with reasonable temps, but I wouldn’t call it swimming weather. However, we saw a group of seniors (guessing late 70’s or older) doing just that! It was a great day out of Dublin, so thanks for the post.
