My knowledge of Ireland has mostly been gained by watching re-runs of Ballykissangel and listening to the music of the Irish Rovers. I am also a fan of Celtic Women and Enya. I like music of The Waterboys-though really, Fisherman’s Blues is the only song I know. There is something magical about the whole idea of Ireland though, all that green and the amazing way they have of speaking there. One of my all time favorite books is Angela Ashes-Frank McCourt brings Ireland to life. Dublin hotels have all the amenities that you would expect.
Dublin, well, I would start off with a bus tour. I have always liked getting the lay of the land, spotting things that sounded interesting in a brochure, but didn’t look all that great once I saw it. And then finding something else that looks good that wasn’t even listed. The things to do and see in Dublin include:Dublin Castle, Guiness Sorehouse, Kilmainham Gaol, and Dublinia. There are pubs and restaurants galore. I like walking tours myself, here are just a couple that sound like fun: Viking & Medieval Tour and Castle & Cathedral Tour.
You’ll find Dublin hotels from 1 star up to 5 stars.
There are over forty free things to do- if you happen to win a free ticket to Dublin, Ireland. There’s the National Museum, The Natural History Museum, Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery of Modern Art, and Chester Beatty Library and Gallery of Oriental Art to name a few free museums. Among the many famous Historical Building in Dublin you’ll find Trinity College Top, Bank of Ireland, College Green, and the Custom House. St. Stephen’s Green and Merrion Square and two free garden spots in Dublin. There are also many free libraries and Churches in the Dublin, Ireland. Dublin hotels in the Dublin City Center make a good home base.
Buses and Trains make it easy to get back to your Dublin hotel whenever you feel the need for a bit of rest before heading out again. You can easily rent, or hire, a car in Dublin for those interesting spots a little farther afield where you might not wish to be put on someone else’s schedule. I have always found riding a bus much more relaxing than driving in a foreign country, but that’s just me.
There are plenty of things to do and see in Dublin.
