When I moved to Dublin in July I was amazed by how long the days seemed. The sun was up well before I even contemplated getting out of bed and stayed until close to my bedtime.
Now, I’m equally fascinated by the long nights. Luckily it hasn’t been too cold or rainy and I’ve been able to catch some of the holiday lights and festive spirit.
Before I go, I’m off on holiday this week and just in case I don’t get my act together in time, I want to wish all of you a happy holiday.

Wow, those photos are gorgeous. I can only imagine how much more impressive lights like these are in person. Happy holidays to you, as well! 🙂
This is a wonderful time of year and I really like how much people enjoy holidays here. Even the workers at the post office are still in a good mood.
What beautiful photos TB. Makes me want to visit 🙂
Season’s Greetingg to you as well.
I think you’d love Dublin.
Now I want to visit even more :). Fantastic photos!! Enjoy your trip – you both deserve some rest and relaxation.
The trip was amazing! Not ready to be back.
I had no idea you moved to Dublin. It’s been such a long time since we last “spoke”. I hope you’re well. I wish you Happy Holidays.
We moved to Dublin in July. The plan is to stay here for at least a year.
I hope all is well and I’ll pop by soon to say a proper hello.
It looks so pretty all lit up! I’d love to spend Christmas in another country/culture just once. Have a lovely holiday.
It’s fun to experience different traditions. We’ve been lucky to have lived in a few places during the holidays.
Thank you so much for the Holiday gift…Happy Holidays to you as well.
Glad you enjoyed 🙂
I love cities at night. Something about them being all lit up, even during non-holiday times, seems magical to me. Even the most ugly area of town is mysteriously beautiful at night in the glow of electric lights.
Lights do add a certain quality (romantic, maybe) to most cities. Happy holidays Carl!
Happy holidays to you and yours TB! Looking forward to learning about Dublin through your eyes in the new year.
Dublin is an awesome city to explore. Loads of history, nice people, and tons of pubs.
Happy holidays TB 🙂
Happy Holidays & all the best for 2017 to you and your loved ones, TB.
I had heard that Dublin is lovely and these photos prove it. Hope your holidays were joyous, TB.
Very nice pics buddy! Sorry I’m late to the party, but still very cool photos. Glad you’re enjoying the Dublin vibe out there.
Dublin is a beautiful city. And it’s good to hear from you.
