This is one for everybody who likes to visit Dublin. Spend a day shopping on Grafton or Henry Street, decide to visit family and friends or combine a city trip with going hiking in Wicklow. Just take a closer look at this offer! On hrs.com I found the brilliant 4-star Pembroke Townhouse (79% on Tripadvisor) at the edge of city centre in Ballsbridge for only £37 per person based on 2 people staying 2 nights (=3 days). You can easily walk into town since you’re very close at Grand Canal, a pretty newly constructed part of the city. There is also the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. Check out which performance is on during your stay. Definitely worth a visit! The booking dates on hrs.com can be selected and you can choose between April, May and June so plenty of time to plan your trip. If you need a flight bargain I have found a great one on bravofly.co.uk for only £19 per person. The flight dates are 10/05/2014 to 12/05/2014. But feel free to choose a date that suits you best.
My advice for lunch, even though you read a lot about Bewley’s Cafe in tourist magazines, go to Carluccio’s, a really nice lunch place/restaurant on Dawson Street. They even have cooking classes, so combine your trip with a Risotto or Pasta making class :) If you like to visit a museum then there are of course all the national ones: the Art Gallery, Historic Museum, Natural History… but a bit more hidden, the Chester Beatty Library is a wonderful place to spend an hour or two. The museum gives a wonderful literary overview of the main religions and you can admire a collection of books from the Middle East, North Africa, Asia and Europe combined with beautiful contemporary art. A must-see!
