The story behind the image
We visited Dublin in September 1999 as part of a three-week trip to the Republic of Ireland. Dublin holds countless attractive sights and has a rich history.
This is also expressed by the beautiful Georgian entrances that feature many houses in Dublin. Usually, you’d be directed to St. Stephen’s Green to capture one or two of these. I found these stunning doors at 74-75 Merrion Square South. I was fortunate that a guy passed with his bicycle, adding a bit of activity to the image. Same is true for the Audi that has been parked in front of the building.
In case you are wondering: The house with number 74 was (in 1999) and still is (in 2022) the home of the Central Catholic Library. House number 75 is office space today but has its own homepage with a bit of history.
I just love Dublin. Need to return sometime.
