    Temple Bar Gourmet Food Market

    by iris2002 Written Apr 14, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This excellent market is hidden in the heart of Dublin --- you can access it via the IFC (Irish Film Centre) or Temple Bar....

    It's a real treasure for all gourmets and you will not be disappointed with the variety of local and international delicacies on show (and for taste-sessions)

    The food market takes place every Saturday (between 9.30am-5pm) and is a great place for local organic produce ...

    Iveagh Gardens | Gairdíní Uíbh Eachach

    by hexelein Updated Aug 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Iveagh Gardens is a beautiful and peaceful corner of downtown Dublin, seldomly found by tourists. The park, which used to be the private property of the Guinness family, is completely enclosed, with entrances that are somewhat hard to find (and probably regularly mistaken for being entrances to the nearby St Stephen's Green).

    The gardens were designed by Ninian Niven in 1865 and are in the process of being continually restored. The park has several statues, both complete ones and fragments, a waterfall surrounded by tree ferns, an archery range, a restored Victorian rosarium and a maze.

    The gardens are open from 8 am (10 pm Sundays / Bank Holidays) to 6 pm or dusk. There is no entrance fee, no cafés or anything to distract one from just simply relaxing.

    Directions: Main entrance is from Clonmel Street (short street off Harcourt Street). There is also a tiny and easily overlooked entrance on Hatch Street.

    The waterfalls whilst not falling. Statue fragment hiding in the gardens. A charming and somewhat aged lamp post.

    driving route through south and southwest

    by hza556 Updated Mar 29, 2011

    I made a Google Map of the 10-day driving trip my sister and I took to Ireland. We were first-time visitors and petrified of driving, but we encountered absolutely no problems. We started in Dublin and did a loop to Wexford, Cork, Kenmare, Dingle, then Limerick. Sharing my map with embedded photos and tips for other first-timers looking for suggestions. Let me know if it helps!
