Dublin Day 6
Today we had a short day in the matter of things we could do, yet we followed the advise of a friend Kemberlee from http://www.all-ireland.com/ . She suggested that we take the DART. The DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) is the rail line running along the coast of Dublin, from Malahide and Howth southwards as far as Greystones, Co Wicklow. The DART system is administered by the national rail operator, Iarnród Éireann (Irish Rail). You can connect to the regular train service for communities north of Dublin, right up to Belfast. The DART is most convenient if you live in or near the coastal areas. We bought an All Day Ticket which allowed us to have in and out priviledges all day.
So it is time to go back to Dublin and head toward The National Museum of Ireland (Irish: Ard-Mhúsaem na hÉireann) which is the national museum in Ireland. It has three centres in Dublin and one in County Mayo, with a strong emphasis on Irish art, culture and natural history.The Archaeology and History section on Kildare Street has displays on prehistoric Ireland, including early work in gold, church treasures, the Viking and medieval periods, and more modern times. There are special displays of items from Egypt, Cyprus and the Roman world, and special exhibitions are regularly mounted.
