I’ve only been to Dublin itself, I liked;

The Guiness Factory

Kilmainham (spelling?) Jail

Temple Bar for bars and restaurants

Trinity College

 

Hope the weather is decent for you. Have a fab time, it will come round quickly.

faith9:  I LOVE Glendalough! It’s very pretty and a short ride out of the city center. Guiness is cool as is Kilmainham Gaol (pronounced “jail”). Howth is lovely too and also just a short ride out of the city center on the dart.  If you are sports fans try and see a hurling match too – that sport is nutso!

My Fiance and I went to Dublin for Christmas! HE actually almost proposed there. Dublin castle is nice as is Malahide castle. The Guiness Factory was really cool as well. My Fiance and I got our names engraved on some of their glasses. Just a hint, if you want engravings on your souvenirs go the the gift shop prior to touring the factory so you don’t have to wait for the engraving. Enjoy your trip!

Glendalough is incredible. Go!! St.Stephens Green is a fun place to just go hangout. Trinity College is beautiful and even though it’s kind of a tourist trap, going to see the Book of Kells and other stuff in the museum around it is worth it. I don’t think Newgrange is that far from Dublin either and it is also pretty amazing. There are several passage tombs in that area that are awesome too.

Love the emerald isle. Dublin is amazing, I stayed in a youth hostel back during undergrad and we did a round the island whisky rodtrip a couple years ago. Dublin has the Guiness factory, worth checking out. Although skip the rat story, it turned me off of the brand. The parks and musuems are great. Forget the name but the modern art is worth checking out. As for outside of Dublin, we went to the Jameson distillery and it was a great tour. Can you sense a theme? I feel like an alocholic. It is across the country but Giants Causeway is gorgeous.
