9 pints & 9 pubs later... 

no smoking law in pubs is strictly enforced

the land where beer and literature go hand in hand

a plaque outside this pub talked about how Joyce said you couldn't cross Dublin without hitting a pub

 

the locals call it "Temple Barf," and we saw quite a few piles to justify the monniker

Where there's rain, there's rainbows. Where there's rainbows there's leprechauns chasing pots of gold.

Highly recommended but not pictured is the Chester Beatty Library

which features an extraordinary collection of old book art, typography and art.
