Dublin - Day 3

Community Highlights Europe Dublin - Day 3

Our third day we had purchased tickets to go to St. Patrick's Cathedral and had planned to visit some of the gardens as well as explore more parts of Dublin.

We had tickets to St. Patrick's Cathedral as soon as they opened and I would highly recommend trying to get into the cathedral as soon as they open. After an hour or so of opening, the place was packed and almost too hard to take pictures or to move around to the different areas of the cathedral. St. Patrick's Cathedral was founded in 1191 and is the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland. The cathedral has BEAUTIFUL stained glass windows throughout, some of the most beautiful I've seen so far. We learned that stained glass was used to teach illiterate folks about the stories of the Bible.

After the Cathedral, we walked through St. Stephen's Green and Merrion Square and went to the National Museum of Ireland - Natural History Museum and the National Gallery of Ireland, both had free admission. We also found Oscar Wilde's childhood home.

We had a fantastic time in Dublin. There is so much to do and see and the people are so friendly. We definitely hope to make it back at some point. On to the next adventure!
