Where to stay:
A well-located hotel is a must. I prefer the Temple Bar/Fleet Street area which is close to the river Liffey and within walking distance of all the major sights.
Things to do:
There is no shortage of places to experience a pint or glass of whiskey. To avoid lines, make reservations in advance for the Guinness Storehouse and the Old Jameson Distillery. If you would like to learn more about whiskey, stop in at the Irish Whiskey Museum for a tour and a taste. The tour moved along through different rooms of the museum and ended with a taste of 5 whiskeys.
Take a guided tour of Trinity College which includes the Book of Kells and the Old Library Exhibition to learn more about its 400 year history.
Visit museums – most are free and have wonderful gift shops and cafes.
Take a day a day trip to the west coast to visit Galway and the Cliffs of Moher. We had pre-arranged this and it was a nice break from the city in the middle of our trip.
Places to grab a bite:
The Palace Bar on Fleet Street – A Victorian bar with timeless ambiance and warm, friendly service.
