Now being back home from Dublin and having had time to reflect – these are the places in the city that I would recommend:
A pub with great live music and kind staff. Of course Guinness is their hit but their options go beyond that.
Adresse: 18-21 Anglesea St, Temple Bar
Every city needs a green oases where you can get to relax and enjoy the fresh air.
This is the largest enclosed park in any capital city in Europe and that you can really feel. We did not make it through the whole park but from what we saw the park is worth mentioning.
It opened to the public in 1747 and has been open to the public ever since. In the park you will find the Victorian flower garden, the Zoological Gardens, a lovely tea room and several benches to relax on. There are cycle trails available too if you want to bring your bike.
The Phoenix Park is open 24 hours a day, every day of the week, all year round – so no need to stress getting there.
River Liffey and the Ha’penny brigde
Where the seagulls and wanders meet. Beautiful bridges over the River Liffey.
Adresse: Bachelors Walk, North City
A place my grandfather recommends. If you want a mid night meal or the taste of fish and chips – you should stop by Leo Burdock!
Adresse: 4 Crown Alley, Temple Bar
Looking from the outside – Trinity College has in my opinion one of Dublins most interesting architecture. Not to mention how beautiful the old library inside the college must be. With all its history is was fascinating walking around the campus and it’s was indeed a place that stood out to me.
We did not ourselves walk into the old library, something that I originally wanted to see, but as the queue went from the entrance and around the block – we passed.
Adresse: College Green, Dublin 2
She is famous through the song Molly Malone and the statue of her is located in the heart of Dublin. We walked by without knowing it was there. Getting to know the area and now knowing where it was, finding it again was easy. When the statue will not be surrounded by tourist, just like ourselves – I don’t know. Because trust me – you will not be alone there – it’s a tourist trap. But one worth walking by.
Adresse: Suffolk St, Dublin 2
A restaurant we didn’t get the chance to go into, but it did look like a place I would be interested in checking out – therefore I wanted to mention it. Their interior and menu was inspiring.
Adresse: 18-19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2
This is the place where my grandfather went to get his hair cut. Friendly barbers and a unique old spot in the city.
Adresse: 48 Fleet St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2
Where to get nice vegetarian and vegan food.
Adresse: 19-20 Wicklow St, Dublin 2
Even though this truly is a tourist destination the scenery is worth every human being walking by you. Breath in and look in front of you to see one of nature’s most beautiful creations.
Adresse: Lislorkan North, Liscannor, Co. Clare, Irland
On our day trip to the Cliffs of Moher the bus stopped in a small city called Galway.
It’s a charming city with small boutiques and great seafood as they are located close to the sea.
The oldest pub in Ireland with kind staff that lets you pour your own Guinness.
