Richard was a perfect guide to the city, he is English by birth, but met and married a beautiful Irish lady, so Dublin is now his home. We came away with so many funny stories about the city. His FIL was in the Garda back in the 60's, Ha'penny bridge at the time had no steps and once in the middle of the night they drove across this footbridge in a mini, which just fitted in the gap, if they had broken down they would not have room to open the doors and get out. Stories like this bring the city alive.
Christmas in a different city is always fun, we avoided all the big brands and did not do much shopping, but walked around taking everything in, the sights, smells and the people.
It was a perfect time to catch up with family and spend time together, now we are into Christmas, we have only the fresh stuff to get. So we are planning a lazy weekend, looking forward to my brother coming next week.
