Travelogue Ireland 2007
Heading East and Dublin

The last two stops before Dublin were Birr Castle and the Ruins of Bunamase. Birr Castle has a beautiful large park. They also have a small science museum because the original owners of the castle were quite active on that field. In the park you can still see a telescope built in the 19th century which was the biggest telescope in the world for some 75 years. The castle itself can not be visited.

And finally we had one day to visit Dublin. There aren’t many photos, because neither Gabi nor I like visiting cities too much.
