    Dublin Sports & Outdoors

    During our tour of the British Isles and Ireland, we had the opportunity to attend a match at Lansdowne Road, known to the common world as the home of Irish Rugby. A beautiful stadium rich in history, this was definitely my favorite part of our rugby tour. I would highly recommend that if you are around Lansdowne around the time of a match, please...

    Strolling 'Off the Beaten Track' I came across this square in a residential area, just Off Ormond Quay Upper, while I was looking for 'Dublin's Last Supper' . It was quite a surprise to come across this 'village in the City', where Children were playing football and generally 'hanging around' I guess they weren't too used to tourists wandering...

The 1st Liffey Swim was held in 1920 so this was it's 91st year, it's the end event of the swimming...

  • Cricket

    Dublin Sports & Outdoors

    VT member dmrtn isn't too happy with me for only seeing cricket being played in Dublin. He seems to view Dubliners as a much tougher bunch and likes to tell me about the more manly sports such as rugby and hurling. But, in the spirit of authenticity, I can only tell you what I saw!!! I was walking around the campus of Trinity College and noticed...

    83 kilometers, out and back in six hours, wildflowers, and a great brown bog. How can one spend a Saturday in a better way? Thinking back on that weekend makes me a bit homesick. Here in Barcelona, it is difficult to come across a location that values such a huge expanse of peatland.I planned my trip according to a Lonely Planet book I found a few...

  • The heartbeat of the Irish Summer -...

    A visit to Dublin during the summer would be incomplete without a visit to Croke Park, the most modern stadia in Europe. With a capacity of 80000 (set to be increased to 90000) it's the 5th largest stadium in Europe and can be seen from miles around. Not bad for an amateur association. It is the Gaelic Athletic Associations Headquarters. It hosts...
