'Abdu'l-Bahá's travels


Abdu’l-Bahá arrived in Dublin at 7:00 pm on July 25 and took up residence at one of Mrs. Arthur J. Parsons’ two homes. Until August 16 He remained in Dublin, surrounded by green hills, flowering gardens, and flowing streams.

His days were spent talking in detail with persons who came from near and far, speaking to local gatherings, and writing Tablets (letters) to people around the world. Again, He was taking time to deepen the friends, to inspire them, to raise them up, to teach them the spiritual meaning of life, to prepare them for the tasks that lay ahead, and to show them how to develop true happiness.

Abdu’l-Bahá met with some of the most important intellectual and cultural figures of the day in Dublin.
