Do you know where is Molly? Molly Malone to be exact.

The famous Templer’s Park Bar – you will be spoilt for choices and reminds me of LAN KWAI FUNG in Hong Kong
A global Outlook at Trinity College. Someone once said -Dublin university contains the cream of Ireland: Rich and thick.

I did not have much time to spend in this beautiful city, therefore I decided to go on a hop-on, hop-off bus which is the best way to get to know a city. You can buy a 24 hour’s ticket or a 48 hour’s ticket, depending on your available time. As for me with limited time , I bought the 24 hour’s ticket and you can buy this when you board/ hop-on the bus. I started off from the St. Stephen’s Green Park and just went on the entire route without hopping off as it was already quite late in the evening and it was very cold in Nov (around 13-14 Deg C). It gave me a good overview and I can start planning where to hop off the next day.

The next day I went to explore the shopping district. Running from St. Stephen’s Green to Trinity College, Grafton Street has been the center of shopping since Victorian times. This pedestrian only shopping street is located in central of the city and is filled with magnificent townhouses and street-level stores.
Among the traditional must go historical places to admire the architectural grandeur of this country is the St. Patrick’s Cathedral -named after the patron saint of this nation, Trinity College – which is also well known for the Book of Kells, Templer’s Park Bar and very famous product from here is the Guiness factory. The local language here is also known as Gaelic – so do not be surprised when someone greet you with a “dia duit”(dee-ah gwit).
Yes, it’s in Dublin, the capital of Ireland. I have a chance to go there in Nov this year. Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. It is a city rich in history.
