Dublin, Ireland, is a city of much charm and history. On our visit in July ’97 we walked past the impressive Custom House building and the 18th-century Bank of Ireland, which once housed the Irish Parliament. Heading up Grafton Street, we passed many excellent shops and galleries.

We entered the handsome main entrance of Trinity College, giving way into Parliament Square, a cobbled stone quadrangle which is flanked by the Examination Hall, the Theater, the Dining Hall, which dates back to 1743, and the Library, which dates back to 1712. The Library building stretches 209 feet and houses a collection of books that date back to 1601. The place had an aura of intellectual brilliance and achievement that was simply awesome.
