    Ha Penny at Night

    Ha penny at night

    Favorite thing: We spent a LONG day exploring Dublin. About the time we finished at Grogan's Castle Bar, we were dead tired and had to make our way home as best as our feet would allow. Through the haze of fatigue, I barely had the energy to lift a camera. I made this exception when rounding the corner in sight of the Ha Penny at night thoguh. She's a lively old girl anytime of day, night or season, so here's a parting shot of my Tuesday evening' outing in my second of all favorite cities, Dublin.

    Favorite thing: Cross the Ha'penny bridge, walk down the park-like center of O'Connell Street to admire the new Spire, explore the lively Temple Bar area, wander through the grounds of Trinity College, and stop for a rest on a bench in St. Stephen's Green. No matter what your specific interests may be, do take the time to see the city on foot.

    Favorite thing: Halfpenny Bridge, one of the oldest bridges in Dublin spanning the River Liffy. However due to the narrow width of the bridge do not attempt to cross it with a large suitcase unless you really wish to hear various words for idiot in Irish!!!!!!!

    Fondest memory: The Ha'penny Bridge. It is one of the most ancient (if not the most ancient) bridge crossing the well-known Liffey River. It was named after the half penny people had to pay to cross the bridge, a long long time ago.

    The bridge separates two of the main areas of Dublin city centre: the well-known Temple Bar in the South, and on the North side a huge shopping area centered around Henry Street. For those who haven't heard of Temple Bar, it is the oldest district in Dublin. It used to be a dump but it has become the fanciest (and the cutest) part of Dublin, where a big part of the nightlife is going on, and where rents are the most expensive. Now you definitely will not find the real Irish spirit there -- everything is made for the tourist and Dubliners usually despise this area.

    Favorite thing: ... no comment ... :-)
    the only thing that comes to my mind right now, when it comes to this bridge, is not for public

    The River Liffey and Ha'penny Bridge

    Favorite thing: Isn't water great. We need more of it. And preferably cleaner water too. But we'll take what we can get.
