Dublin, Ireland

TUESDAY JULY 4TH

  • Cork English Market: English Market in downtown that dates back to 1610
  • St. Anne’s
  • Rock of Cashel: historical fortress
  • Guinness Storehouse: the museum is okay, but the reason we went was to check out the 6th floor bar with great views of Dublin
  • Foley’s Bar: quirky pub with great food

WEDNESDAY JULY 5TH

  • Rolling Donut: best (and most creative flavors) donuts in town
  • Trinity College
  • Book of Kells: an illuminated manuscript containing the four Gospels; it’s kind of a big deal for being a book
  • St. Patrick’s Cathedral
  • Wicklow Mountains
  • Glendalough Ruins: 6th century monastery that was destroyed by the English in 1938
  • Powerscourt: beautiful mansion with spectacular gardens
  • Porterhouse Pub: probably our favorite bar: they had a great bear and cocktail menu and live music every night
  • Fish Shack
  • Temple Bar: although this bar is a major tourist destination, it’s huge and has both indoor and covered outdoor seating; they also have plenty of live music
  • Bad Ass Temple Bar: okay bar that played American music…not exactly what we came to see in Ireland

THURSDAY JULY 6TH

  • Dublin Castle:
  • Kilmainham Gaol (Jail): used during the potato famine and Irish revolutionary period
  • Dublin Harbor: where all the new modern construction is taking place
  • General Post Office
  • The Spire
  • Grafton Street: pedestrian only shopping street
  • Music Pub Crawl: a Rick Steve’s Must-Do, this pub crawl did not disappoint
  • Gogarty’s Pub
  • Ha’Penny Bridge Inn
  • Flanagans
