Thursday Doors – Goodbye Dublin

I’ve a mixed bag of goodies for this week’s Thursday Doors and they’re all in various locations around the city of Dublin. Of course, I had to start with a red door, followed by a fabulous old bridge.

This next bridge was worth including, too.

I would be doing a great injustice not to include one of the many monuments and fountains to be found dotted around the capitol.


The Chariot of Life is a copper-bronze sculpture which is said to depict ‘reason controlling the emotions’. It is the work of Oisรญn Kelly (1915-1981) and was unveiled a year after his death.

There are quite a lot of unusual pieces of art on the streets of Dublin and some even have doorways included.

There is also a pleasant mix of old and new buildings. Dublin is definitely not a city of skyscrapers.

But most of all Dublin is known for it’s doors, so I think I should leave you now with a small sample to finish off this week’s Thursday Doors post.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Norm has a great selection of Thursday Doors over on his blog this week, too.

  1. i Love the ways you captured the beautiful Dublin doors. I enjoyed looking for interesting doors when we wandered around Dublin a couple of months ago.

    It makes me wonder what is behind those doors and if those doors could talk what stories would they tell. Thank you for your Thursday posts.

    Interesting horse statue – the man appears to be leading an orchestra instead of riding two (?) horses. Wonder how he got the inspiration.

    I don’t know how you do it Jean but you always manage to find nice red doors ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Not that I needed any more convincing but it certainly seems that Dublin would be a prime destination for door lovers. Plus all of that public art, architecture and history: I sure hope I get there one day.
    Great post!
