Last day, Dublin

Ireland 2008

large_1297706_14348132365031.jpgIn the afternoon we have our flight back home so we don’t have a full day but still enough for some sightseeing. After an early breakfast we head out to Malahide [Malahide-travel-guide-937941] castle. This 12th century castle is owned by the Irish state and open to visitors. But since we are not interested in the interior of the castle we just visit the gardens, and a short stop at the souvenir shop in the hallway. The gardens are beautiful and I can imagine more so in spring.

Then we drive up to Howth [Howth-travel-guide-937041] where we walked along the cliff edge path. Howth is considered to be a piece of Dublin [Dublin-travel-guide-936355] but it’s actually a nice little fishing town. We tried to walk all the way to the lighthouse but as we are nearly there a fence blocks our way. At that moment the helicopter we saw parked near the lighthouse took off so we had front row seats for that spectacle.

Then it’s off to the airport. We take some extra time because we also need to return your rental car and we don’t know how long that’s going to take. Proved to be settled quickly so we were way too early at the gate and still nearly missed the flight because they changed gates and did not show it on the board at the gate we were waiting. But all turned out ok.
