The not so obvious Dublin

by Boerresen

My husband and I will be exploring Dublin for four days during Easter. Accommodation is sorted just off Grafton Street - and the obvious must see and must do are kind of noted – what we’re looking for is the not so obvious – can anybody recommend a really nice breakfast/lunch/dinner place, special Easter events, music etc.
Thanks
Hanne

For a simple lunch, I would recommend the Soup Dragon - lovely homemade soups. http://www.soupdragon.com/

For something not so obvious to do - you could visit St Valentines' shrine: http://www.carmelites.ie/Ireland/Whitefriar%20St/valentine.htm

the Arlington hotel has Irish music shows every evening (free) and they also do a decent meal package. http://www.arlington.ie/irish-nights.html

Try L Gueuleton on Fade street for a great lunch which is not too expensive.
For good irish music and guiness try the Cobblestone in Smithfield which is also near the Jameson distillery.
There is lots of nice bars and cafes off Grafton street

The Silk Road Cafe (www.silkroadcafe.ie) is a nice place for lunch, it's located within the Chester Beatty Library (www.cbl.ie)which is also worth a visit. If you fancy a day at the races you could try the Easter Racing festival at Fairyhouse (www.fairyhouseracecourse.ie), half and hour from Dublin on the train - transport links are outlined on their website. If you are in the Temple Bar area you could visit the cafe at the Irish Film Institute in Eustace Street for lunch. Pubs are often a good choice for lunch and some do dinner too, I often recommend the Church Bar and Restaurant in Mary Street because it is in a historic building and has an impressive interior - they do 'pub grub' in the bar or more formal dining on the balcony and in the restaurant in the basement. There are lots of restaurants and pubs in Sth Great Georges St and a bit further away in Wexford Street/Camden Street.

Thank you so much everybody, these are the exact kind of responses that I hoped for - keep'em coming :0)

Not sure when you will be arriving, but just be warned that on Good Friday, all of the pubs and many if not most restaurants will be closed.

Re: The not so obvious Dublin

by Boerresen

That will be more or less like Denmark on Good Friday, I suppose. But thank you so much for the info, somehow I thought that Dublin as a capitol would be a bit like London over Easter 'open' only with shorter hours - never mind, we'll have a great time enjoying Dublin.

Relax and go with the flow. ...

by QM79

Relax and go with the flow. There's no point in trying to see everything in one visit. Dublin city is a place you should visit more than once. When I was in college in Dublin I used to live in Drumcondra which is on the North side of the city. (It's about 15-20 mins from the city centre). I absolutely loved living there as the people are lovely and the area is actully really nice. You get a lot of tourists there as well because the airport is not for from there.

Dublin Tourism Center

by Goner

The Statue of Molly Malone stands outside the Dublin Tourism Center on Suffolk Street at the heart of Dublin's city center. This tourist office was one time St. Andrew's Church. Besides finding accomodations and information on Dublin, there is a great Tourist literature and book shop which is open all year round.

While waiting for your enquiry number to be called, the visitor can relax in Fionn McCools Sandwich Bar.

address: Suffolk Street, Dublin 2 I'll miss the friendly banter and Irish lilt of the voices when they're giving you you don't understand.

for addresses to all the tourist offices check on this website:

People in General

by IrishFem

Irish people eat early and go out early. Not like our Europeans neighbours. We dine between 6 and 8 and head out to the pubs or clubs early. Only those over the age of 18 can be served in pubs. Pubs open around 11am and close around 12pm or if they have a food licence they will stay open till around 2.30pm. Some clubs have a licence until 4am.

Sandycove:a little harbour...

by ciaramalone

Sandycove:a little harbour where the James Joyce Museum can be found in the Martello Tower, featuring memorabilia, letters, first and rare editions and many items associated with Joycean Dublin. The nearby village of Glasthule comes alive on June 16th, Bloomsday, so names after the main character, Leopold Bloom, in Joyce's famous masterpiece Ulysses.
