    Very interesting place to visit. Old Dublin's history with great architecture right at the center of the city. Walkable and lots of transportation.

    This place is mind-blowing! So many centuries of history, so beautifully preserved! The crypt is very Game of Thrones, and the rest of it very Pillars of the Earth! It's crazy to me that I can stand in a building that was laid out almost 1,000 years ago. The audio tour is completely worth it - I felt so smart when it was over! Honestly I wasn't going to go to it, but someone recommended it so strongly I gave it a shot and I am SO glad I did. Please go - you're going to love it!

    This is the area you need to go for shopping and walking around the city. This is especially true on Sunday when most shops and restaurants are closed in dublin. There are few people on the streets in other areas but a bar tender pointed us back to temple bar for restaurants that are still opened on sunday. When we returned again on Monday the situation is completely different. Lots of people in the area and all shops and restaurants are opened so we have a lot of choices to choose from.

    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!

    Was there with a few mates at the weekend. Music was good all night and there was a very good atmosphere. They had the rugby as well which was very handy. The staff were lovely and the drinks were nice and cheap too. Even won a few bob for myself!

    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!

    It doesn’t take long to cross the Ha’penny Bridge, and unless you’re visiting very early in the morning you’ll likely have to battle the crowds as not only is it a tourist spot, it’s also really convenient as a river crossing.

    This is a beautiful old church very centrally located just off Grafton Street. It can be accessed via a lane way to the side of the church.

    Building dates from 18 century, it's located in Dublin city center - Dame street. It's next to the Dublin castle, so it's great to do both tours. In town hall you'll find beautiful exhibition about historical Dublin.

    We visited on a Sunday and found only about a third of the shops/stalls open. However it was still nice to wander around and admire the historic building and see what was available for sale.

    If you will look it up on the web you shall find the following , and I quote:
    "O'Connell Bridge is a road bridge spanning the River Liffey in Dublin, and joining O'Connell Street to D'Olier Street, Westmoreland Street and the south quays."
    Nonetheless it is one of Dublin's landmarks , not just a bridge as one could be thinking of in a simple way.
    Originally built in the late 1700 ... rebuilt an refurbished ever since whenever needed and its name got changed in 1882 once the statue of Daniel O'Connell got unveiled at one end of the bridge.
    Nowadays is a genuine landmark of the city ... not necessarily a must see, however if you are in the area it is definitely worth a few minutes and a few pics.

    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
