Dublin, Ireland 2016...

My male choir Goosebumps (Gaasehud) went on a singing, exercise and relaxation tour i 2016.

Even more pictures here
By the way.

The Irish national instrument is the Celtic lyre, incidentally the same as the logo of the Guinness Brewery. The airline Ryanair also has a stylized Irish harp as its logo.

After a good nights sleep it was off to the Guinness Brewery.
Not looking for the lyre, it was following us.


We looked got the information on the Brewery, bought some food and went on upwards  to the sky bar where we sang. That is what a choir usually does.

With a wonderful view over Dublin City.

Afterwards we went shopping or to a personal relaxation.

This is the needle or the "Spire".

Located in the middle of O'Connell Street it is a good landmark.

It is a large, stainless steel, pin-like monument 120 metres (390 ft) in height, located on the site of the former Nelson's Pillar and statue of William Blakeney on O'Connell Street in Dublin, Ireland.

Easy to find if you look up. If you can relate your place to the Spire, then a lot has been done.

In the afternoon we went out to new challenges


In O'Connell street, we surprised a girls' choir that sang for income for something. We supported with some ore-filled male choir singing.
A little chin drop on the young ladies, but we think they recovered quickly.
So we went on...

We visited the modern Irish Whiskey Museum and learned a little about Irish and Scotch whiskey. And how much better the Irish (whiskey) are than the Scottish (whisky).


With tastings of the Irish to it.



Irish music was there and time to catch up. Here from a Musical Pub Crawl by Irish musicians who served a more raw and real item than the river dance activity at various tourist hotels.

Here are two glasses of Guiness stout with Shamrocks in the foam of my glasses.
This is also Ireland.


A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. The name shamrock comes from Irish seamrˇg, which simply means "young clover".
