Dublin: Lunch at Eddie Rockets

Dublin, Ireland

We start our second day in Dublin with a visit to Saint Patrick's Cathedral.

Today we'll be driving and stopping to see the Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle and the Muckross Friary.

Jonathan Swift wrote Gulliver's travels. They have a cast of his skull in the Cathedral. They once thought that the size and shape of one's skull determined character and intelligence.

Swift suggested fighting hunger in Ireland by killing and eating a quarter of all children under the age of two. He was trying to make a point about hunger.

Later we visit the Guiness Storehouse. I don't like beer very much but Guiness Stout is an exception.

We ninish the tour up in the Gravity Room which has a fine view of Dublin. We have tickets for four perfectly pored beers, but I have to give three of them away to a thirsty looking couple.

The kids like the retro hamburgers and shakes in Eddie Rockets so we go back there for lunch.
