    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.

    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.

    We spent one night in the city center to see all the sights without driving/parking. (We picked up our car rental after our night in town) The other two nights in Dublin area we were on the outskirts. We are not party-ers but love atmosphere and the sights.

    If only every city was like Dublin...

    It's a lovely city filled with even lovelier people. During the day, it's a good city. We sat at a coffee shop, did the Guinness Storehouse, and walked around near the river. At night though, the city is magical. The live music is incredible. The people are wonderful, friendly, and helpful. And the people fill the streets and pubs. If you're caught kissing on a street corner, the Irish will tell you that you look beautiful and romantic.

    Insider Tip:If you're staying in a hostel, do the pub crawl one night.

    Very Fun City, Avoid Temple Bar

    Me and my buddy (in our mid-20s) spent 4 nights in Dublin during St Patricks Day and we had a blast! The city isn't the biggest culture shock city, but if you're looking to go out and get blitzed every night, I think you found the right place. BUT AVOID the heart of temple bar. Beers are double the price, and you get the same experience as if you'd go to an irish pub in NYC. Venture a bit out, and walk further south from the river and you should be golden.

    Insider Tip:Guiness factory A+ obviously and if you want something different to add to your trip, rent a bike at phoenix park. A great way to take a break from all the beer and partying and take a breath of fresh air. As I said in my review, if you want a great time for drinking walk more south of temple bar and you'll be on your way. Fitzsimmons is the best overall bar in my opinion. Club in the basement, irish covers on the main floor, and rooftop bar. Good mix.
