    take the right road, the RIGHT road here!

    Fondest memory: Yes, it's possible and even preferred really, to visit the splendid Christchurch Cathedral...WITHOUT taking part in, or spending extra euros on, Dublinia. If there were real Vikings in Dublinia, fine, that'd be worth the added dough, but you can learn anything there from a book. I think so anyway.

    Favorite thing: In terms of majestic and overwhelming architecture, Dublin is not in the same league as cities like Rome or Paris, but don't despair. There are plenty of striking architectural details beyond Georgian doors and dim, oak panelled pubs. Here's a close-up shot of a door at Christ Church Cathedral.

    Visit CHRISTCHURCH...

    Favorite thing: Visit CHRISTCHURCH CATHEDRAL... the cathedral of Norse Dublin, founded in 1038 by King Sitric. Denied recognition by the Gaelic Irish Church, its Bishops were consecrated by Cantebury and were then subject to them for the next 124 years. Following the Reformation the Cathedral became a Church of Ireland establishment. (Also - 'Strongbow', the Norman adventurer who conquered Dublin, is buried here.)

    Rooftop details
