Don’t miss it
An audio tour of the Guinness Storehouse. Following the tour, enjoy a pint of Guinness [ complimentary of your admission ticket ] and panoramic city views in the top floor bar, Gravity Bar. The bar is indoors, so it can be enjoyed no matter the weather. Sláinte!
Listen to traditional Irish music and munch on fish and chips at Brazenhead, famed as Ireland’s oldest bar and restaurant.
Must try food/drink
A pint of Guinness, Irish coffee, soda bread, Irish stew and fish & chips.
Wish I had more time for
An evening out in the Temple Bar area. This pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is filled with pubs, restaurants and boutiques. You can listen to the lively folk music by simply wandering through the cobbled stone streets. This area is the perfect place for an evening out!
We spent three nights in the Four Courts Hostel. It was in the perfect location and the facilities were pretty clean. Even better, the staff were extremely friendly and eager to recommend activities and restaurants in the city.
Here’s a hint
I was told by a lovely Irish man that locals rarely drink Guinness, nor do Irish ladies drink out of pint glasses. Don’t let it stop you, you are in Ireland after all!
