Looking for advice on things to do for a two day visit

Hi, i am taking my wife to Dublin for a surprise 2 day visit in February and I would like help and advice on what to do and where to go.

I am staying in a hotel in the centre of the dublin, and i am looking for ideas on what we can do during the day and also in the evening. We are in our late 40s. I am looking for ideas on what we can do in the evening. We are arriving on the 12th and leaving on the 14th. Also, please recommend some nice restaurants.

I have tried to see if there are any comedy shows or anything like that but cannot seem to find anything for those dates.

Also, what is the best and affordable way to get from the airport to the hotel. This is our first visit and hope it with be one of many

thank you

Can you give us an idea of your interests?What appeals to one. may not appeal to another. Can you also give us an idea as to the general area your hotel is in- the city centre covers a lot of ground.

The Woolshed Bar is just a short walk from your hotel as is The Church Bar that has some dining and music options that might interest you:

Here's some transport options from the airport to close to your hotel:

Or a taxi would be around €20
