The Parent Visit VI: Between the Road Trips

In between roads trips with Morgan's folks we saw a little of Dublin and the surrounding area. It might be quicker to list the places we didn't go! The first week, we went to see Powerscourt Gardens, then the Irish National Stud. We walked around Dun Laoghaire Harbour with Xan, saw Grafton Street and Temple Bar and St. Stepen's Green. The next week contained a painting day at Xan's, some rainy laundry days, trips to Dundrum Town Centre, an excursion to Glendalough, and a day spent around the National Botanic Gardens.

Once Morgan's Dad left for home, Morgan's Mom and I stormed Kilmainham Gaol, the National Museum (there are several locations), the National Gallery, Dublin Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Christ Church, the Museum of Modern Art, Chester Beatty Library, a Georgian House, and the Book of Kells and the Long Room at Trinity College. We even worked in a little box store shopping with Morgan and attempted some cookery!
