I have a fantastic book I'm studying for my trip to Ireland next year, it's called U2 Under a Blue Dublin Sky by Karin & Marcel Wagenaar and it really is very informative and pretty much touches on all the U2-related sites as well as the usual tourist attraction suggestions. Are you planning to stay at the Clarence?

I'm not made of money either, but I would LOVE to stay at the Clarence! That's my goal, just one night! To be able to say I stayed there!!!

I am not sure where the book is from, my sister bought it and had it sent to me, but check Amazon. If you need more info on the book let me know and I will check it when I get home. You can PM me or email at carek1230@cox.net

I decided to add Leslie Castle to the list, I went there and got a tour from Jack Leslie himself, it was really cool and got to see a ton of historical stuff, like Winston Chrurchill's christening gown!

I hope you have a great time! Ireland is a beautiful place! I lived there in 2001, and loved it. There have been a lot of great suggestions already.

As far as Dublin goes, here are some suggestions:

Kilmainham Jail is very cool if you're into history.

St. Stephen's Green is beautiful, and a great place to sit and people watch while you have your lunch or something, providing it's a decent day weather-wise.

Grafton Street is fun, lots of shops and people.

The General Post office is cool too.

The Temple Bar district has some great pubs, and the atmosphere is very lively!

I ate at the Bad Ass Cafe (not sure if it's still there) a couple times, and it had great food.

I have several great guidebooks for Ireland, and can give you more info if you'd like. Send me a PM or an email thora_seb@yahoo.ca and I'd be happy to help out!

Hey thanks, I checked Amazon and they didn't have it. I did find the site that sells it, it's an unofficial book from somewhere in Europe. I know what u mean... one day i hope to stay at the Clarence too. lol, I don't even think u can stay one night, I think it's gotta be a minimum of two!

Thanks everyone for the recommendations, it's been really helpful. Galway and the Cliffs of Moher are definitely on our list. I've never heard of Leslie Castle, i'll definitely look into that!

ThoraSEB, thanks for all the places... i think I actually heard about the Bad Ass Cafe in a guide book i was reading, so it might actually still be there.

lol, i'm new here so i'm not really sure what PMing is... I was also wondering if i can quote more than one person at once... didn't wanna leave a million replies

I highly recommend Galway if you get the chance, you can take the train there out of Dublin's Heuston station. Also, try the Smithfield area of Dublin, it's a bit off the tourist path and kind of cool. DART is very easy to get around if you want to go north to Howth or south to Bray/Greystones. A nice seaside day trip and very inexpensive! Have fun!!

Maybe a local book store like Borders could order the book for you? It's really good. Some more info from the book: The ISBN# 90-808100-2-9

or try Kite Publishing, www.kite-publishing . com (remove the spaces of course) copyright 2004

Or write Infor@kite-publishing.com

I'll be my sister bought it off the Kit site and had it sent to me.

Anyway, good luck!

Giants causeway is good, though they charge the most ridiculous price to park your car in the carpark . You should also check out the Whisky factory at Bushmills if you're up in the North at the Giants Causeway.

Galway is a very cool city. While you're in the area and after the Cliffs of Mohr which is a must. Yeats castle is nearby and visit a few of the old churches if you get a chance.
