Room 411 Dublin on January 8th

Today we toured around Dublin. Our first stop was Kilmainham Gaol, a well known reform jail. On April 23rd of 1916 the Irish Republican Army headquarter at the General Post Office was attacked by the British Army. After the attack the leaders were sent to the Kilmainham Gaol as prisoners. It was interesting to learn about how the Irish were so determined to fight for their freedom and their culture.

After visiting the jail, we toured Trinity College. On the campus, there is a museum dedicated to the Book of Kells, the oldest religious book written in an illuminated manuscript form. The intricate details of the manuscript surprised us, as we discovered that it was all done by hand. What surprised us even more was the scale of the library located on top of the museum, as it held more than 200,000 volumes

Although we had originally planned to experience dinner at a pub, we walked over to Bobo, a burger restaurant near Trinity College instead. The burgers and milk shakes were amazing.
