Only two days to go! As a farewell to Dublin and Ireland I've put together a list of the nicest places and things I've come across in the last three years. You can check them on THIS MAP  too (with pictures!).

The list is very limited, unfortunately I haven't been to all the places I wanted to visit and among the ones I visited there are some I can't name or place on a map... It is clear that I need to come back! ;-) But in any case, living here and travelling around was an unforgettable experience... Ok, let's go to the list before I become too sentimental.

In Dublin:

- The Botanic Gardens

- The very popular vegetarian restaurant Cornucopia.

- The cakes at Queen of Tarts, (and the music and vintage china...)

- Monday evening dancing sessions at O'Sheas Merchant Pub.

- The Library Bar at the Central Hotel.

- Georgian houses.


Around the country:
