33.3, or so it goes.

Ok, so you wonder what the heading is about? Well, according to my husband, who has totally embraced his Irish heritage and is now even speaking in brogue, informs me that approximately ‘tirty tree and a turd’ of the Irish population live in Dublin. That interesting bit of trivia was discovered on today’s bus tour of the Irish capital.

Seriously, the bus tour was a great way to get a bit of perspective of the historical places of interest.  We had tried to get in to see the Book of Kells first thing this morning, but the line stretched half way around the quadrangle at Trinity College. On the bus, our guide, Barry from Ballymore was hilarious and gave us plenty of moments to take the p**s out of the Irish.  It also gave us an opportunity to see where we wanted to hop off the bus and check things out more closely.

Later  in the afternoon after enjoying a great coffee at Fixx Cafe  and having a good look at the vibrancy of Grafton Street, including dropping into Antonio Carluccio‘s Dublin digs, we sauntered back to Trinity College and managed to get in without too much delay.
