Relax and go with the flow. ...
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
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
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...
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.
