We began our day with a tour of Dublin Castle. The mix between Viking, 18th Century, and modern architecture was fascinating, and a good microcosm of Irish culture in general. Then it was time for the “challenge by choice” part of the program. After our two-day orientation, the girls were allowed to explore Dublin in groups of 2-4. All are present and accounted for at 5PM!
We will have a farewell and celebratory dinner at The Brazen Head, a pub that bills itself at “the oldest in Dublin.” Sounds to me like the “best cup of coffee” in New York City. We will follow up tonight with plenty of stories and pictures. Here’s a picture of Dublin Castle to whet your appetite:
