Doors Of Dublin

On my Ireland trip in 2009, I took pictures of doors that I had hoped to make into a poster after seeing various ‘doors of’ posters in the past that I thought were cool.  I don’t have the best camera, and am an amateur photographer (obviously), but here is my attempt (click on the smaller image to enlarge it):

I thought it strange that several doors have their knobs in the middle of the door, but that is an exception as most of the places we went had the knobs on the side of the door.  I wish one of the doors with the knob in the center of the door had belonged to a public venue because it would have been interesting to see if it felt as odd as it looked to open the door.

This back-garden hedge entry is not in Dublin, but I liked it so much I wanted to include it in this post.  It’s from a Bed & Breakfast that we stayed at in County Cork that made me feel like I’d enter Narnia by going through it, or at least into the Secret Garden:

I hope to take another trip when I can spend more time in one area instead of trying to sight-see the country in a week…

  1. Thanks for sharing your pictures. When we were in Ireland, we fell in love with the little stone houses with all the greenery growing up the sides of the house. We were very aware of the size of most of the homes. Unlike America, where we seem to take pride in being ostentatious, the homes of the Irish were much more simple.

  2. You’re welcome, Brenda! I really enjoyed Ireland as well, and did notice that homes are not as extravagant over there. I really like stone houses and hope to live in one (maybe even help build it!) some day. Cheers!
