Vico Road.

My favorite hour in Ireland was when Tim, Goo and I took the DART south to the village Kiliney and walked Vico Road to Dalkey. The train ride alone was such a treat, but the frosting on the cake was stepping off the train to this view and smelling the Irish Sea.
Just outside of the station, our view to the right.
 And this lovely house, our view to the left.
The most charming crumbling cottage.
And I loved the stripes on the road signs.
This is where U2 fans make their pilgrimage. Both Bono and The Edge have homes here.
Tim reading the messages left by fans.
A spectacular garden over looking the Irish Sea.
The view south through more amazing gardens. 
The architecture of the homes along Vico Road plus the sea to our right, the sun on our backs and a slight breeze, made for happy smiles and lighthearted conversation.

This pup kept watch from above in his watchtower garden.

We counted 20 chimneys on this building, each had at least four pipes on top. Does that mean four fireplaces in each home? Lovely. Still makes me curious to peek at the mantels inside.
I could have done this every day we were in Ireland and been completely satisfied with our trip.
