  1. Just for back from my second annual visit….looking forward to the day I am returning from my seventh visit!!! Fantastic city, can’t get enough of the place……managed to avoid all the touristy areas. Best pub for a sunday – cobblestone. Urban picnic for breakfast and porter house for steak and ale pie!!!

  2. What a great idea to pull all these great tips together in one reference point post. As a child I spent many a summer holiday in Dublin, my parent originate from there. I’ve not been very often in recent times so will look forward to reading of places I remember.

    I would strongly recommend that visitors take a few days out and explore the rest of the country. To truly see the real Ireland I think you need to get away from the big city.

  3. Jeremy Branham

    I really enjoyed Dublin. As much as there is to see and do there, the people may be the best reason to visit the city. I had an awesome time the few days I spent there last year. However, there is still so much more that I want to do.

    I spent a lot of time at Trinity and even got permission from the school to do some filming. I did an interview with students at the school there and also have lots of footage from the school.

    So many great things to do in this city. However, ALWAYS spend time talking to the people whenever you visit.

    Thanks for including a link to my post on walking in the rain in Dublin. Definitely something many people may have to do if they spend a few days there.

    1. Hey Jeremy,

      One thing you can almost guarantee with Dublin, and Ireland, is it will probably rain at some stage. But that just adds to the mood and like you you can’t let it dampen your adventures.

      Yeah, the Irish are great and welcoming and definitely a highlight of any visit.

  4. vinh hung riverside resort & spa hoi an

    Awesome tips, especially love that first idea! I would love to organize something like that!

  5. I’m visiting Dublin in a few months – just wanted to let you know your list was really useful! 🙂

    What I’m certain of is that I’ll have a Guinness!

    1. I’ve been there and it’s a wonderful city. My brother lived there for a year, so I have been tourist a number of times – one of the places I would like to visit again.
