About twice every year I visit this location on Killiney beach to check out the graffiti and sadly it appears that the quality of the current work is not as good as it was a few years ago and some items that I really liked have totally vanished (of course, that is to be expected).

Until today I thought that this building had something to do with boating or the fishing industry but today I met an 85 year old gentleman who told me that it was in fact the location of very popular "tea rooms" and that he remembers being brought there on a school trip (I was a bit to surprised to learn that children were brought on school trips 75 years ago). On checking I discovered that he was correct: "Developers, Declan O’Regan, Kieran Tarbett, and Ross Cahill O’Brien have submitted a proposal to restore the tea rooms on Killiney beach to their original state. They wish to retain the character of the buildings and reinstate their former use as a café which will also act as a gallery, exhibition space and venue."

Trim Castle is open, on payment of a modest entry fee, to the public everyday from Easter Saturday to Halloween (October 31) from 10am. The area inside the castle walls is freely accessible for a small fee, while the Castle keep is visited by a 45-minute guided tour, with first tour at 10.30am, last entry at 5pm and last tour at 5.15pm. In winter, the complex is open only on weekends and bank holidays. If you take the tour the guide can show you the historical graffiti found on some of the walls, some of it dating back to the castle’s construction.
The castle grounds, outside the walls, including the restored small canal and fine viewing areas, can be accessed free all year around, and there is a pedestrian bridge across the Boyne to allow access to outlying historic remains.

The Palace of Justice was, on completion in 1883, the biggest building in Europe. Most people find it an imposing building both outside and in and its sheer size is equally daunting. There is a public lift (open Summer 2002) that links upper and lower town and a good view over northern Brussels from the terrace at the front of the building.
