Abandoned Dublin

I didn't get too many pictures, though I wish I'd gotten more. 
In the middle of a fairly modern neighborhood, surrounded by thorns and weeds and what appeared to be a fence pieced together out of corrugated tin and scrap metal, was this abandoned house.
It still had beds, tons of books everywhere, old rusted keys, and a room lined with VHS tapes.
There appeared to have been a fire in the living room, but it otherwise gave no reason for abandonment.

We actually spent the night in the house, as we had no place to stay for the evening.

You're a brave man staying in a place like that in Dublin. You're lucky there weren't smackhead zombies in there!

haha, some teenagers had been in there at some point in the past and had written cryptic messages all over the walls. "Dean loves Lisa" right next to the messages kind of ruined the effect.
I actually slept really well, which surprised me. I'm usually really easily freaked out.

I get a bit of a Naked Lunch vibe from the first pic.

We were led to it at about 1:30 in the morning, so the details are vague at best.
All I can tell you is that it's in the northern part of the city, in a residential neighborhood about 2-3 miles from O'Connell.

It was sweet.
