Two Days in Dun Laoghaire – Two Seal Sightings by Ann Treacy

One of the things that we all miss when we’re in Minnesota is walking down the Dun Laoghaire Pier. So we’ve been there twice. (Dun Laoghaire is a town south of Dublin; we live much closer to Dun Laoghaire than to the center of Dublin.) There are actually two piers in Dun Laoghaire. The East Pier is the one that’s best for a walk if you want to see people and maybe get an ice cream. The East Pier is a little rougher. But usually your odds of seeing a seal (or even porpoise!) is higher on the east pier. Amazingly we walked down both and saw a seal each time. It’s always a big thrill for us to see a seal.

Otherwise they’ve fixed up our favorite Irish Chinese restaurant, Café Mao. The cinema is showing Kung Fu Panda 2. They’re still renovating the boardwalk (and have been for more than a year) but it’s going to be nice when they’re done!
