GOOD FENCES - Dublin Buildings

Yesterday I showed you B & W photographs of Dublin, so today we are back to colour and these shots were taken as I walked past the Portland stone balustrades on the O’Connell bridge towards College Green where I would be lunching in a marvellous restaurant called “The Bank”. 
(Don’t miss tomorrow’s post!)



Taken from moving train before I reached Dublin.


River Liffey





College Green (Irish: Faiche an Choláiste) is a three-sided plaza in the centre of Dublin. On its northern side is a building known today as the Bank of Ireland which until 1800 was Ireland's Parliament House. (below) 






To its east stands Trinity College Dublin. To its south stands a series of 19th-century buildings that are mostly banks. Streets leading onto College Green.

The Ulster Bank Entrance.

We are nearly there for our luncheon date so see you tomorrow.

I am linking this post with GOOD FENCES.

Thanks for dropping by and many thanks for leaving any comments.

  7. I even love that shot from the train. All that water! The buildings are beautiful. Banks always have money to build the best buildings. I looked at your wonderful b&w photos from yesterday. My favorites are 1, 4, and 12!!! I so enjoyed them.

  28. That first shot really looks good in both versions...the B&W feels like stepping back in time. Normally, I would like it the best, but I really like the color version, too.
