I'm Irish and I can't stand either ::) The National Gallery has some great work's of art if you like that, which I do. Glasnevin cemetery is about 20 mins. outside the city if you want to visit Phil Lynott's grave. And as Tom Garrett said, get the train out to Galway and see the west.

A modern attraction are the ghost estates put up by greedy developers, financed by greedy bankers; left unoccupied by the bust.  Still I doubt anyone will go out of their way to visit those.
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

*Bump*


I'm coming over with my mate Jim for the Sabbath gig - 19th-21st Jan and hoping to meet up with Dom if he's about! Dom has already recommended the Green Room bar so we will definitely give this a visit - any other recommendations greatly received for eating and drinking! ;D  Cheers!

Guinness tour, some bars in Temple Bar already on the agenda.


Any other recommendations?


Hotels? I'd like to be central, but not break the bank

Stayed at the legendary O'Donaghue's the last time I was in Dublin, in 2015.  Decent enough digs, very reasonably priced and steps from all the action (of course, the bar itself gets rammed of an evening).

It was also where we found out we were going to be parents.  So that was a cheap night...  ;D

bez , last time we went we stayed at the westin , on college green great spot great hotel - looking at prices , I think we were there in January and got a deal ... , id personally aim for somewhere around trinity college , the davenport is worth a look I stayed there once too the other side of trinity college .

loads of bars and pubs , the "best" ones really are away from temple bar or at least on the edges of it , a favourite of mine is the old stand on great st georges street , the international bar nearby , oneills , my recommendation would be to get a pint in temple bar , so you can tick that box , then head away from it . , oh theres the bruxelles - that's the phil lynott statue  / musician pub off grafton street

FX Buckley steakhouse is good , theres place called luigi malones in temple bar which is great for food very popular though .

use the aircoach to get from the airport , very handy and convenient .

if I can think of anything else ill add on ..
I'll try and behave . Promise
