In Dublin

Recommended Posts

I find myself in Dublin for a few days - currently waiting in line to see the Book of Kells. Does anyone here know any bladesmiths or blacksmiths in Dublin? Would be fun to visit a shop.

It was built between 1712 and 1732. The Museum of Ireland in Dublin is great as well. They have a nice Viking-age display. Here is a pommel from an 11th century sword:
