Walking in the rain through Dublin

September 17th, 2013, 11am

It was 8°C with scattered clouds. The wind was light.

Dublin is an old city, with old paths and old ways. There’s no grid and lots of one-way streets — leave the car and just wander. Or Hailo if you’re in a hurry. In the rain modern repairs of 18th Century paving lays wait, broken and ready to jet dirty water up the trouser-leg of the unaware. In the rain a cheap umbrella is €6 from your nearer Spar, and will last till you have to cross a street. Better to just wait it out in an “old man’s bar” — Mulligans, Bowes, Kehoes, The Long Hall, Grogans. If you’ve no time to visit one of these, take a longer holiday.
