DUBLIN - And Guinness. County Dublin

Dublin: We ambled for a day, around St. Patrick's Cathedral and the River Liffey, especially interested in Bloomsday, James Joyce - whom we later met in Pula in Croatia. See Croatia Road Ways. Joyce lived in Croatia, among other places. 

Medieval Dublin is hard to extract from wandering the commercial city today. See medieval Dublin information at enfo.ie/leaflets/bs16.htm. Its history is at eiretek.org/chapters/books/Harris/contents.

Aim for the Guinness. This famous stout was first brewed as a "porter" by Arthur Guinness in 1770 at St. James' Gate here, see ://www.guinness-storehouse.com/en/somehistory.aspx/  Now centered in England,  you can still enjoy the Guinness Book of World Records, instituted to while away the time while patrons imbibed.  See ://spyhunter007.com/spy_guinness_book_history.htm
