Trip Report: Ireland (part 3) Activities in Dublin

 


Part 3

Activities in Dublin

(warning this may be a long post with many pictures! You have been warned!)

We stayed in Dublin for 3 nights and we had a lot of fun there! We explored the city as much as we could all while doing some of the typical tourist stuff. My wife did most of the research and I let her run most of the show as far as what we were going to do while in Ireland. So I will let the pictures do most of the talking in this post!

Hop on/off Bus Ride

This was a nice way to see Dublin and get around town. The tickets were good for two days and there were plenty of stops if you wanted to see something specific! There are several companies that operate the tour busses but we bought the Red Bus tickets.

We hung out at quite a few pubs and restaurants while in Dublin.  I will compile all the places we eat and drank in one post towards the end!  We loved Dublin. It was such a fun place to hang out and plenty to see. We were really lucky as the weather was very warm for Ireland! We loved the Guiness!!!

The next installment in this trip report will be a review of the Radisson Blu Dublin!
