I'm not sure what tourists expect when they visit Dublin for the first time but I reckon must leave thinking that Grafton Street and Temple bar are good examples of what Dublin has to offer, but if you want to see Dublin, real Dublin, visit the Liberties. Between Newmarket and it's markets and whisky to Thomas st, Guinnesses to Christchurch,... More

On the south western of the central city you will find this street, not too far from Guinness's, St Patrick's Cathedral and Christchurch Cathedral. Not so much here for the tourist to buy as such, but is very much on equal par with the north side's Moore Street for it's local character and charm. You will see how the locals... More

You can have a nice day wandering in this area. If you are into antiques try Francis St. Safer during the day

This is an excellent place to view quality antiques. Prices reflect the quality but do not miss the opportunity to see the inventory. Shopkeeps have some interesting stories and love their work.

Visit Dublin's Liberties and you're in the heart of real Dublin. It's a lovely walk from Dublin City Centre and on the way you could drop in to Trinity College (Book of Kells), Dublin Castle, Christchurch Cathedral and a host of other interesting places. There's plenty of bargain shops, pubs and restaurants in the Liberties on streets like Thomas Street,... More
