Dublin and Malahide, Ireland

Dublin's high street is Grafton and you'll find a fully packed Brown Thomas store filled with women's & men's fashion and other housewares items. This is Dublin's top department store and opened in 1848 by Hugh Brown.  

Not far from Dublin is Malahide where Bono from U2 has his summer home.  If Ireland had a Riviera this is where it would be.  The beach front is beautiful and even more so when the sun shines.
