We went to A LOT of art museums and galleries. Some of them were really cool, but some were less than interesting (but that's just me and a lot of contemporary art!). It also got hard after so many hours of standing around and walking really slowly - for some reason the pace of being in a museum tends to make me sleepy after about two hours.
|One of the museums had a lovely formal garden off to one side, though. So I got to escape for a while and wander around outside.|
|There was a really interesting fountain in the garden - and art sculpture of some sort, of course!|
|It reminded me a lot of drippy sandcastles. Also crustaceans.|
|Umm.... Captain Cait?|
|There was also this really cool mural that was just sort of randomly in a parking lot.... Not entirely sure what it was all about, but it was pretty fantastic!|
|Selling cockles and mussles, alive alive-o|
If anyone reading this does not know this song, please PLEASE go look it up! There were a surprising number of my classmates who had no idea why I was so excited that there was a Molly Malone statue.
|There was a man doing sidewalk art, but it was really really impressive sidewalk art! I think he may have been using paints somehow, instead of chalk.|
|Dublin is a really pretty city. Unfortunately, most of my photos ended up blurry, since I was taking them whil walking around, and not paying much attention to focus.|
|As we were walking from the castle back to the hostel, we passed this really interesting building.|
