To find new sports bars in Dublin
Watching sport in pubs is great especially during the GAA final! premiership all year long, ryder cup now (golf)...I use this website for the sports schedule in dublin bars : www.sports-in-bars.ie. Dublin is a city for watching sports in bars! The world cup semi final 2006 France/Brazil at the Major Tom, all pubs packed in Dublin !!
such a great atmosphere !

Hello. Well, obviously were all different, with different likes and dislikes (am I right, huh !), but I'll try to pick out one of my favourite times and/or parts of Dublin, or maybe 2 or 3 !
If your into nature but don't want to leave the city, check out the Phenoix Park. It's about 3/4 miles west of the city centre and I live just 5 minutes walk from its south perimeter ! In it is the presidents residence, the popes cross, and heards of deer. With level grassland, football pitches and forest land it's a diverse and beautiful contained landscape. Well worth a visit !
Or if you want some excitement of a different kind, get into the heart of Dublin city centre. Find anything from an array of shopping precincts, beautiful city parks and pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit all. The best way to discover Dublin is to explore ! Probably the complete feeling of being at home. I know this may be the same for anyone towards their own home location, but it is still a big city, with many different people, but I can walk around the city centre in complete comfort, I feel like I could walk around in my slippers !
Ireland's Eye - just one of my pet fav's of Dublin
Visit Ireland's Eye - a small island just off the coast of Dublin. The nearby Howth is also well worth a stroll.
I'm really just adding this tip to the general section because I'm so in love with this beautiful little island.
Seabirds such as Kittiwakes, Fulmars, Gannets, Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills and numerous Gulls regularly roost on the impressive cliffs of the island.

shop Grafton St. OK, it's a little touristy, but not too bad--and they have great shopping. A couple of department stores and plenty of smaller shops. After the ordeal of shopping in Rome--where browsing is not really encouraged--it was nice to shop someplace where you could just look around without the salespeople staring at you. There are some good restaurants around here, and of course at one end, the famous statue of Molly Malone.
Business hours are normally Monday to Friday. Shops open from 9am to 6pm. Normally Thursday and Friday are late night opening until 9pm. Most shop open in the City centre and shopping malls every Saturday.
