    First things - Big ques will make it difficult to talk to anyone, or get through to buy tickets in person, so you'll probably need to buy tickets on line, in advance and that's a bit of a faff on a phone. You will enter in a big group at the pint of your time slot and will all naturally gravitate towards the first point of interest on the audio guide you will also have downloaded to your phone. 50 or so people all in one spot - not too good for Covid prevention. You'll learn about the book's construction and ignificance, all of which are interesting and then you'll get a chance to see the book itself, which is again an experience, but you certainly won't be alone, because the display case only allows 10 or so people to view at the same time. The page is turned every 8 weeks or so, which means that if you are in luck, you'll see one of the highly illustrated pages, but if you're not, you'll see something much more 'plain'. Why don't they just leave it open on the most impressive page?!

    Then you will nter the library, which is actually more dramatic - but again you will be in there with about 200 other people.

    All in all, worth seeing, but not exactly cheap for something that at most lasts about an hour.

    We all know this is a expensive place but well worth a visit, great Irish music ( which was very lacking in other bars ) when we were there they also has a singer on. Guinness was lovely and the white wine was very good.

    If you like a bit of quality shopping, Grafton Street is the place to be. All the household names, designer brands & an upmarket department store. Don’t forget your credit card!

    We wanted to visit the Square/Park to see the Oscar Wilde Memorial Sculpture.
    There is a very interesting opportunity to 'hear' Oscar Wilde via your mobile phone!

    We dropped in as part of our walk around Dublin. It's a small undercover market with traders selling street food and local produce. We tried some of the mulled apple with irish whiskey - really good! Also veggie samosa, olives, potato cakes and pulled pork. All really good street food. Drop in and have a look aroud. Doesn't take long and well work stopping by

    Stroll down Grafton Street and turn right into Nassau Street and there in front of you the illustrious halls of Trinity College and home of the Book of Kells. On the other side, you have the shops and restaurants and a short walk to Kildare Street and the National Museum. Great shop on Nassau with an outstanding selection of Irish Woolen goods.

    Brona King takes great concern to ensure specialty books on Irish Architecture are always in stock, and is knowledgeable about all of the facets of Irish Contemporary and Historic Architecture. BOth contemporary and historical guides are available. However the best International ad Yale Univ Press, and Phaedon titles are also available, or can be ordered with great speed. The shop is a small jewel box, that is small in dimension but richly furnished, in the headquarters of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, 8 Merrion Square, situated in the cultural Quarter of Merrion Square, close to the National Museum, National Gallery, and 29 Fitzwilliam Street, the Georgian House Museum. This is a shop that gives you what Amazon.com cannot possibly.

    Great old fashioned Dublin pub. Professional service and not afraid of serving a bottle of non-alcoholic lager!

    Arrive early on weekend nights - very popular!
