A Week in Dublin, Ireland - 1st March 2011

Isobel has a meeting in Dublin for work, and so - as Nosher doesn't have much else to do at the moment - we all head over for the week. Nosher is mostly hanging out with Fred during the day (although Evelyn rather awesomely takes Fred in to her creche for a few hours on three mornings), so we poke around Blackrock and the coast, and head in to Dublin on the train for a few hours.
