Hi all,

I just checked the fares for next weekend from fra to dub on EI, they are offering return for 80 Euros incl Tax....

Is a weekend enough for Dublin, what to do there + what are the hotel prices?

regards

Hi my friend ! In fact...Dublin is a very nice beautiful city, one week is enough to visit the city, which is not big, many pubs, Trinity College, St. Patricks cathedral, Churches, Guinness Beer factory. You can also take a tour to the Countryside and you´ll see many many beautiful landscapes.

Hotels are quite expensive in the centre of Dublin - 100 Euros for a 3* or thereabouts. Beer is 3-4 Euros per pint/bottle. Make sure you visit the Temple Bar area - bars, nightclubs, etc. One of the great things about Dublin (or Ireland in general) is NO SMOKING in public buildings - that includes bars, restaraunts, and nightclubs!

DON'T go to Temple Bar. it is full of tourists and completely devoid of any Irish people! Go to O'Donoghues on Merrion Row for some proper Irish music and culture.

As for hotels it depends on what you are looking for. To give some idea last month I stayed in the Westin on Westmoreland St right in the middle of town. Really nice hotel, not the best in Dublin but right in the middle of the city and it was 179 Euros for the night and I only booked it the day before.

Yeah the Westin isn't bad...

I would recommend going on a bus tour. They're only 20 Euro. Go to http://www.dublinbus.ie/ and select Your Journey and then Sightseeing Tours.

Temple Bar is boring. It's just full of pubs and foreigners (not that I can talk, being Australia myself!)

It's a very safe city, so walking about in the city should be no issue.

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Dublin is a perfect-sized city for a weekend break. Where to stay and where to go depends on what you're looking for. Temple Bar has a lot of tourists but you'll still find plenty of Dubs in the place. If you want a quiet weekend don't stay there, but if you do you're guaranteed a shag, if that's what you're after. If you're on a budget and looking for cheap accom I can get the names of a few central hotels which won't kill your budget. Generally speaking, hotels around Gardiner Street fall into the lower end of the price scale, yet they are still very central.

It's a very popular city for weekend breaks and it can be expensive, but, like most places, if you look around you'll be able to eat cheaply. Drink is around €4.50-€5 for a pint, a spirit and mixer about €8. There are some good clubs to go to, but unfortunately they all are supposed to close at 2.30am -- the Minister for Justice is trying to "re-educate" Irish people and their attitude to drinking.

I can guarantee that you'll have a fun weekend, and there are plenty of cultural things to do and see. You won't have time to do them all, but you'll get a good flavour of the city and its people.

If you need any more info I'll be only too pleased to help.

Depends whether you want to meet any Irish people!  Wink But I can assure you there are PLENTY of Irish people in that area. Shaky hand man was one of many we met (long story). So friendly that the locals were buying US drinks... Oddly enough, we only saw a couple of hen/stag parties though.

Yeah, a bus tour is a good idea.
