    Amazing City with a lot more to offer than just "pubs"

    Overall Dublin is an amazing city. Great tours, especially free walking tours tip based. I had a tour guide named Lawrence and he was super knowledgeable and funny. I couldn't believe how much history Dublin had and I love the alleys and the hidden gems within the city.

    Excellent city for all types!!

    One of the best cities I have personally visited - there are many attractions available for the day in the greater Dublin area, and the locals are some of the friendliest in any place on the world. Aside from that, Dublin really wins due to its amazing nightlife - everything from traditional Irish music and dancing, to stellar stand-up and loads of live music, the place is bustling with activity - things to do, and tons of friendly people to meet.

    Insider Tip:Avoid buying too many drinks from the Temple Bar pubs if you are on a budget, especially after midnight! Pregame before going out, or find one of the many pubs within a ten minute radius where the drinks will be half the price. If you do a pub crawl at the beginning of your stay, you can usually come back each night and get drink deals as well.

    Expensive but still a good weekend

    Generally I found Dublin to be fairly expensive (similar prices to London, possibly a little more). Lots of restaurants, pubs and clubs to go to, and travelling outside of the city to see the landscapes is must. Overall, a good weekend

    Insider Tip:Free walking tour is pretty good - interesting and entertaining. Sandemans Free tours is a good company for these

    Nice town, so english

    Nice town, not very big. Most of the interesting things are in the city centre, you can see everything going on foot. There are a couple of big important museums, the Guinness Storehouse and a couple of historical buildings. You'll spend the rest fo your time walking through the streets looking at the houses and the parks, in typical english style. There are nice little towns near Dublin you could see. There are lots of pubs and good restaurants in town, however it's not that cheap.

    Insider Tip:Go on foot, tranports are not cheap and the town is quite small.
