    Dublin is fun but a bit touristy

    I had a great time here but everyone is very aware and prepared for tourists. So it's hard to find an authentic experience. However, everyone is ridiculously nice. Some of the nicest people in the world.

    Let's have some craic!!

    Dublin is a gorgeous city. Live music in almost every pub and every day. Beers are awesome and cheap. People are nice and relaxed. Southern and northern boroughs offer amazing sight and landscapes. Weather changes very fast, can be very windy and rains a lot, but not heavily.

    Insider Tip:Stay there as long as you wallet can afford it!!

    Dublin's interesting and beautiful!

    Dublin's been really great. There are so many locations you can visit. The food (especially the Dinner) is really expensive in Ireland and of course, in Dublin as well. You should always have lunch instead of Dinner ;) The public transportation system is sometimes a bit confusing. For tourists I'd recommend the Freedom Busticket. It's a bit pricey but you can use the Hop-on Hop-off Bus as well.

    Insider Tip:I'd recommend a great pub, but than it was no longer a Insider Tip ;) Go and check out the Trinity College. I loved the library.

    Dublin is Great

    Dublin is a great city, full of endless things to do (many of them free) and see. It has a big-city feel while still remaining manageable on foot and not scary at night. Overall the restaurants are pretty pricey, but there are plenty of supermarkets with hot meals for only a few euros.

    Dublin

    It only rained on us once! Such a great, historical city. There isn't much in the way of public transportation but walking around the whole city in a day is easy enough.

    Insider Tip:Get the Dublin Pass from the tourism center. It helps so much getting into places for free and gives you extra perks.

Ireland: Itinerary

Ireland is a very easy country to get around thanks to an extensive bus service which connects all major towns and cities. It also has a country wide rail service but for most journeys the bus is more flexible, frequent and most importantly, at least 50% cheaper than taking the train. It’s not a big country so you can easily make your way to the major cities but it certainly makes for an action packed seven days. Where better to begin your speedy tour than in ‘Dublin’s Fair City’ - the fun filled capital of the Emerald Isle. As well as the host of attractions on offer, the city can really only be appreciated by those who truly immerse themselves in the culture and there’s no better way to do this than by frequenting the host of the pubs and restaurants on offer. Sip on a pint of Guinness in its native home while listening to some Irish music or sampling traditional cuisine and you’ll know what we mean.
