This Dublin Ireland waterfront greeting card features a striking view of Ormond Quay on the north side of the river Liffey. I experienced this dramatic lighting on one of my last days in Dublin. In fact, I remember I almost didn't go out that day. It had started out wet and I had work that needed doing anyway. And as I sat in my room, I got a glimpse of the sun coming out and I decided that I wasn't missing out on the sunshine. By the time I got down to the waterfront, the clouds were still dramatic and stormy but there was brilliant warm light hitting the buildings running along Ormond Quay. Didn't it make for a dramatic photo?
Ormond Quay was developed in the late 17th century and is named for James Butler, the first duke of Ormonde. The buildings you can see along the river quay are a varied lot. The oldest dates back to the 18th century while the newer buildings are from relatively recent years. Dublin is, after all, not just a tourist destination but a living breathing capital city. And if you take a closer look you'll see how this scene on Ormond Quay captures that. It's filled with cars and buses going about their daily routine.
In the distance one can even see the Four Courts building, the large domed structure, which rests on, appropriately, Courts Quay.
What catches your eye in the image on this Ormond Quay greeting card? Is it the dramatic sky? The warm light hitting the building? Maybe the brilliant reflections in the river? I hope you'll share what attracts you to this particular Dublin artwork?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
