Every time I take pictures in Dublin my only purpose is to capture that gothic and grim atmosphere that I feel there. Sometimes I can, sometimes I cant, but anyway it’s worth seeing in real to make up your mind.
I am thinking of going to Dublin just for the photos and visiting some of the incredible cathedrals and churches they have there. This should be definitely something to see. I just need to get some courage to take photos in the churches, it’s not that easy to go around and admire the ceiling when people are praying nearby.
But anyway, if you happen to go to Dublin, take a “hop in hop off” bus. The ticket is not very cheap, but it’s valid for 2 days and could help to move easily in the city center. Also the bus passes the Heuston train station, do you can save few coins on Luas )
