After the parade, it was time to let the craziness commence! We weren't so much into the heavy partying, but we were curious about the sheer volume of humanity that would pack Dublin's popular tourist neighborhoods. Many of the big streets were closed to traffic as they were full of seething masses. We strolled through Temple Bar, the quays on the Liffey, and Grafton Street. We ended up at The Duke, our favorite Grafton Street pub to wait out the crowd over a toasted sandwich and a glass of something cold. After a long day and a long weekend, we hoofed it home to rest.
