The Arthur Guinness Grave
« on: April 10, 2019, 04:06:16 PM »
In my attempt to get out and eat my lunch somewhere different (rather than sit at a desk) I took the T12 out to the grave of Arthur Guinness and ate my sandwiches with a bunch of dead people! It is only 15 minutes from my work, and I have often passed the unassuming cemetery. It is a small affair and quite rural, not really a major tourist attraction. You can just park up on the road and walk up the drive through the turnstile and wander around. There is a spiral staircase which you can get up onto the roof of the church too.

Hey! I've been there with Mrs NiK (must have been in 1999 or 2000)!
Another one of the numerous unexpected (yet magical) discoveries in Ireland!

Really, the atmosphere of such Irish locations is stunning!

(note to self: try to refrain from using exclamative punctuation every time I write about Ireland)
