ireland: part 4

These photos are from Waterford and Dublin. We went to the Waterford Crystal Museum and watched them blow and etch the glass pieces. Can you believe that crystal grandfather clock? It was insane. 

Dublin was great, and we had the most free time there. We visited the library at Trinity College and saw the Book of Kells, and handwritten manuscript of the the Gospels, written by monks circa 800 AD. The writing was so detailed, it must have taken them so long!

We went to a cemetery, and saw the Christ Church Cathedral, which was beautiful. We toured the Jameson Distillery, and my mom even got to sample the whiskey and compare to Jack Daniels (American) and Johnny Walker (Scotland). At the end, they asked the tasters to say their favorite, of course wanting everyone to say Jameson. My mom was the rebel, and said the Scotch was her favorite.
