ireland!

Hey! my friend and i are travling to ireland for almost two weeks this summer... about 5 days will be in dublin. I was wondering if anybody can recommend what we should see while we're in the city, both U2 related and non-U2 related... we've got a bunch of ideas already but i'm just curious what other people have to say... maybe we've missed something

It seems everyone is going to Ireland this summer,lol. There was a thread a few weeks back about it as well.

You can find it here;

I have never been to Dublin, but would like to go - hope you have a good trip!

Are you going to Northern ireland as well?

I would highly recommend the Viking tour in Dublin--it's so cheesy but really funny! I also thought Dingle was gorgeous and and Clifden is The mountains there are so majestic


Have a great trip!

Yumm, thanks! I'm always up for pizza... We're definitely planning on hitting all those places. Speaking of pizza... what else do u recommend food wise for us to try? I'm not really sure what "irish food" is

I ate a lot of spinach there and I hate spinach!


Um....I don't really remember, I know in Dublin I ate mostly pizza And they do have a lot of American food at hotels



As for "Irish food"......... Breakfast is interesting, lots of meat and stuff, but the food is similar to American food



I'll probably be adding stuff to here as I think of it!

I don't know, but I do know that Ireland imports all their vegetables from..........Spain! Including potatoes! The spinach was soooooo amazing, all the vegetables were As soon as we got back to the States, it was no more vegetables!

I'm a vegetarian, and a very picky eater in general, and I found tons of food to eat in Ireland.

We went to the tourism office in Dublin by Grafton Street and bought a pass to see all of the sites we were interested in and also bought a bus pass that let us hop on and off all over the city. We didn't cover even half of what we intended to see but the bus ride was really cool because we got a guided tour around the city and were able to see parts of it that we wouldn't have gotten to otherwise. There's so much to see in Dublin!

You should go to the west and see the Cliffs of Moher. I think that was my favorite part of being in Ireland. We took a railtour and had a guide for 14 hours that took us all over the west coast. It was expensive but worth it!

The tourism office should be on most major maps of Dublin, very easy to find. Nude is actually right by it. That's the restaurant that Bono's brother owns. They have good food. It's more like a quick cafe place.

We just found the Dart, bought a ticket to our destination, and got on. I think we only used it once or twice.

We actually stayed a little far away from everything in Dublin so we did a lot of walking and also cabs when needed. The cab drivers do not screw you over and try to take you all over town at all like they do in NYC or Chicago (only places I've taken cabs). They will take you where you want to go using the direct route and offer pointers on where to go and what to see.
