We’ve blogged about Belfast & Galway- so we definitely have to shout out about Dublin’s fair city! It’s always amazing!
There’s so much to explore & new things to discover each time you visit but these are just a few ideas:
Walk along the Liffey. See the Jeannie Johnston famine ship & the haunting famine statues.
Powerscourt Georgian Townhouse has boutique shops & a unique atmosphere
Walk through Trinity quadrangle to the Library.
The cobbled Fishamble Street alongside the cathedral was where Handel’s oratorio ‘Messiah’ was first performed for the first time in 1742.
I haven’t found an official coffee map for Dublin (yet!) but our favourites are:
Kaph – Caffeinating Drury St & beyond.
Clement & Pekoe– crafted coffee & loose-leaf tea
Proper Coffee – possibly the best coffee in Dublin City-
Urbanity -more exceptional coffee in Smithfield
Bewley’s clinky clattery cafe on Grafton St.
Meet me in the morning– hipster coffee shop that’s perfect for brunch
As One – A casual cosy space by the Liffey- we only discovered it last week!
Wilde & Greene – Artisan Deli- great for smoothies & coffee
Fodder at Avoca Ballsbridge- Fine Irish food in Dublin 4
We’d recommend Camac Valley Campsite -just off the M50. You can get the bus into the centre.
We’ve also stopped off en route to Dublin with the truckers in Applegreen Services at Castlebellingham or Lusk.
For Outdoor shops visit:
Or on the outskirts & on-line you’ll find 53 degree north
