We went past the Guiness filter beds to see this sculpture called The Wave. The canal water is still used by Guiness, but only for washing purposes.
Lock 3 is a double lock (staircase) and it seems to be a long way down to the next chamber.
This dog could not believe what it was seeing, as the boat descended!
The tram runs alongside the Grand Canal for the rest of the way into Dublin. The yellow flowers alongside the track add a pretty splash of colour to the canal.
The Marble Arch pub looked very attractive but we did not have time to stop. It was still a little early in the day for us too!
The lockkeepers can follow us on the towpath, with their blue vans, all the way down to lock 1, where we join the Circular Line.
Below lock 7 is a lovely wooded section of canal, right in the town.
The canal continues to improve before lock 5, looking rather continental.
This sculpture of a horse and his boy watched us pass by.
Continuing on into Dublin, the houses are getting taller.
It was a lovely day as we sailed on through the last three locks. It was lunchtime by now and there were a great many gongoozlers at each lock.
Another part of modern Dublin. Will he make it to the top?
This sculpture is outside the BT building, right beside the canal.
The approach to Ringsend Basin takes us under the railway line. It looks to be quite a low bridge.
Yes, it is!
