Dublin Castle

Dublin castle is not a castle in the sense that we tend to think of one but rather the Irish equivalent of Rideau Hall in Canada. It was the home of the English representative to Ireland while England ruled over them. The building is nice but not super extravagant on the outside but inside it is quite something. We only got to tour a small subset of the building and it was ginormous room after room filled to the brim with exquisite furnishings and decor. The ballroom must have had 40 foot high ceilings and the dining hall could sit several hundred. We saw the throne that Queen Victoria had sat on when she visited and many many ornate ceilings, walls and doors. Erika was most distressed by the room filled with "flying babies with weapons".
