Last of the Dublin Photos

Dublin

By now you’re probably glad I was only in Dublin for seven hours. Imagine if I’d been there for seven weeks! (You don’t have to imagine it. I went berserk in Italy….) Here are a few photos that didn’t fit into the rest of the “theme” postings. A guy tuning his dulcimer on Grafton Street. I’m so sorry there wasn’t time to go back to hear him play! I love the dulcimer when it’s played well.

This bleak, classical structure was the Irish Houses of Parliament, built by the English in 1729. The Irish Parliament was dissolved in 1801 and the building is now owned by the Bank of Ireland.

It really is a curved street! A very short curved street.

Not sure what this building is but it made a cool reflection.

Videos: Dublin Street Performers

These break-dancers on Grafton Street were really good! A video captures a lot more than a still photograph can, but I was glad to get the shot of the guy balancing on his head.

 

Penny-whistle player, also on Grafton Sreet.

OK, the first band in the video clip is on a stage, so they aren’t exactly street performers, but the performance was in a public square.
