Things to do around Dublin

(6 answers)
By iori Traveller November 5, 2019

Hi locals,
We'll visit Dublin. Two people, have two free days to go sightseeing.
What is your recommendation for two days trip?
Our preferences are food, beer(we already know about Guiness museum), fashion and nature.
For seeking nature, we can also go to outskirt of Dublin. (like 30min-1hour away by train, hopefully.)
Please give us your best advice!

Hi Iori, As some mentioned already, all our National Museums are free, so you could visit the National Museum (History of Ireland) The Natural History Museum (Nature/Wildlife) the National Art Gallery and the National Library, all within a couple of minutes of each other, located close to Pearce Street train station where you can get a dart (train) out to Howth fishing village & harbour. For a smaller brewery tour you can try the 5 Lamps on Camden Street, for some fashion and culture you of course have Grafton St and defo try Georges Street Arcade and for great nearby Pints you should try The Long Hall or Nearys. For music and pints you should try Pipers Corner (Marlborough st.) and O'Donoghues (Baggot st.) Abundance of restaurants al shapes and prices and these are best found by just wondering around exploring the city.
If going 1 hr outside Dublin then Glendalough is the place
Enjoy

Thank you for so much info! last night we went to O'Donoghues and enjoyed accordion music there!
Also, tomorrow we may go Glendalough. Is Kevin bus cheapest way to get there?

St Kevin's is probably best as it's direct and will have like minded people travelling, O'Donoghues has a lot of history behind it in terms of the Dubliners, glad you caught some music, sorry about the weather! Should be better tomorrow, pack a nice lunch and enjoy what we call "The Garden of Ireland"

See you are students . Definitely go to Romano on Capel St. Early Bird menu is great value.

Enjoy Dublin

For trip out of City take the DART local train to Howth or Skerries.
For drinks avoid temple bar very touristy. Instead try Mulligans in Poolbeg St

Museums and art galleries are free.

If on a budget for food I recommend Romano in Capel St. You wont be disappointed.
You can walk most places in the city.

Dublin is great for food - particularly weekend brunch. Lots of places in city centre do nice brunch
A few restaurants in city centre that are nice for dinner are
Là Cave - French and not too expensive
Market bar - lively bar with tapas
Mykonos - reasonable Greek restaurant
More expensive but good places to eat- Pichet , Peploes, Trocadéro
Nice for cocktails - House, the Gin room, Vintage Cocktail bar.

Tourist things to do:
Viking splash tour is fun
Hop on hop off bus tour is good
Guinness store tour is good.
Shopping
Pennys is a cheap department store with very cheap clothes
Dunnes is a little more expensive but still cheap.

Porterhouse in Temple bar brew their own beer and have good music on a Thursday and Friday nights .
Hope this helps
Since we're both students, these infomation about cheap shops are really helpful.
Thank you so much! We'll definitely enjoy some from your list - especially Porterhouse's beer!

Hi take the local dart to either Greystones or to Howth. Both are equally worth doing. For drinks avoid templebar very touristy
Instead go to Mulligans in Poolbeg St. If on budget I recommend Romanos in Capel St for food. Good Italian.
