One last Dublin activity and one oddity

After all the touring around this weekend, extensive sitting was required and we headed to the Gresham Hotel on O'Connell St for a reasonably priced fancy afternoon tea. At €18, it's not a cheap lunch but you get a lot of sandwiches, scones, biscuits, cake, stuff I can't name and tea/coffee. They also won't send you away in a hurry - we were there over 2 hours without being bothered.On my way back to the car, I walked up North Great Georges St and saw this deeply wrong, freshly painted postbox, like a London one for some filming being done that day. How very weird.

  1. I know €18 isn't cheap but it seems like a good price for afternoon tea! Have tried the Shelbourne and The Westbury in the past and they were considerably more expensive.
