How close is Donnybrook to city center?

by gailmcdonnell

My sister's and I are wanting to stay in Dublin in July 2011. We are looking at a short let townhouse in Donnybrook Village Dublin 4. Is this close to Dublin city center? Is this a safe area? We really wanted to find an apartment in the city, but seems most are for 2 people and there will be 3 of us.
thanks

Can I suggest you put the address of the townhouse, or just 'Donnybrook dublin' into google maps? You will then see exactly where it is in relation to the city centre (not very near, perhaps 4km..... you'll need a bus in and out).

I can't advise on the safety of the area, sorry.

Have a look at the official tourist information website for apartments nearer the city centre. It lists all accommodataion and I am certain there are plenty of central options for more than 2 people:

It's just over a mile out on the N11 with regular bus's into the city and by no means an un safe area

Donnybrook is a perfectly safe area, you can walk to the St Stephen's Green area of the city in about 20 mins but the 46a bus runs right through the village and is very frequent. All the info you need about the location is available here: http://www.self-cater.com/DublinLocations.html

It's a safe area - suburb of Dublin with a small village so several shops, pubs, restuarants etc close by. 20 - 30 minute walk to St Stephen's Green (depends how fast you walk) but as Annemarie says there is a regular bus service. I don't know the exact price but it's unlike to be much more than €2 per person - more details on Dublin Bus services are available at www.dublinbus.ie

Travel Tips for Dublin

Books and movies

by Dabs

There are a bazillion books and movies set in Ireland, some of the movies that I've enjoyed over the years:

The Wind That Shakes the Barley, set in 1920s Ireland, the story pits brother against brother in the fight for an independent Ireland

The Commitments based on a Roddy Doyle novel, the music is great as are the performances

Once, set in Dublin, the story of a street musician and the feelings that develop between him and a young Czech immigrant pianist

And some of the books:

Round Ireland with a Fridge by Tony Hawks, an amusing tale of a man who travels around Ireland with a fridge for a month, the consequence of betting while intoxicated

McCarthy's Bar by Pete McCarthy, another amusing tale of an Englishman who's mother hailed from Ireland who follows the cardinal rule of "Never Pass a Bar That Has Your Name on It"

Ireland: A Novel by Frank Delaney, Irish history, myths and legends as told by a roaming storyteller to a young boy who develops his own gift of storytelling

A Dub pub crawl

by tvdm

do a Dub pub crawl - me and my brother doing the very thing in this picture! This is a definite must-do here; start early in the afternoon in town somewhere and 'work' your way through Publin!

Make sure to check Dublin Pub Scene for all the best pub info! The openness of the people and their wonderful accent! You have to try and visit the city during the St Patrick's Day celebrations (around 17 March) and see the people go mad. The only way to survive all this is to join in the festivities; not a very hard task really ;-)

Christmas Shopping

by cjg1

We were pleased when we saw so much of Dublin was decorated for Christmas. We spent Thanksgiving weekend in Dublin and were already feeling ready for the holiday season to begin. Grafton street has Holiday decorations and shop fronts were filled with Christmas displays. Santa was in the Mall taking pictures and shoppers were buying Christmas presents.

We found some very nice Christmas ornaments while shopping. It's a nice way to remember a trip. We collect Christmas ornaments from every place we visit. Our Christmas tree is begining to look like the United Nations.

Dining in Dublin

by Lochlainn

Dublin has experienced an explosion in culinary options in recent years, fuelled mainly by the tourist boom and the development of the Temple Bar area as a tourist "catch-all" destination. While this has led to a surfeit of eating establishments, it has actually not led however to a similar surfeit of choice. Many of the newer restaurants are very much clones of each other and offer similar fare. Under VT's "Restaurants" heading I'll list off a few of my favourites and also a few that represent a choice beyond the "same old same old". As a rule of thumb though, you should be advised that eating in the Temple Bar area is expensive compared to elsewhere in the city, that a tip of 10 to 15 percent is expected in most restaurants, and that it is rare these days to be served by a person of Irish extraction, so be prepared for potential linguistic gymnastics when ordering one's dinner! It is very much advised to advance book a table, especially for groups larger than four people.

On the budget end of the scale the city is awash with multinational fast food outlets plus a few of the home-grown variety. For a filling meal that is cheap always try to find a place that describes its deep fried spuds as "chips" and not "french fries". Above all, do NOT deprive yourself of the Leo Burdock experience. His shop is on Werburgh Street, his fish portions are massive and his chips are to die for!
