    Temple bar for the best night life. I stayed there when I was there and we had live music played in the hostel from 2 in the afternoon till 2 in the morning and it just made a brilliant atmosphere. Also have to go to the Guiness factory, and see st Paul's cathedral. Me and my friend just ignored our maps and walked round the whole of Dublin which is manageable in a few hours. Whatever you decide to do you will have an amazing time

    I hope you have a nice time....the only thing remotely good is the Guiness factory, which is not a factory but a museum. The best thing I did in Dublin was to go to the airport and fly back to Basel.

    I think your experience was untypical. Most people seem to enjoy Dublin, so I'm sure flowergirl will have a great time.

    ... and people, it's GUINNESS with two n's! :yum:

    Go to Brown Thomas for shopping - umm i've been loads but i cant' think off the top of my head what to do.

    The Jamesons factory is good as well - esp if like me you dont' like stout.

    There are some nice walks down by the canal as well.

    It's a hoot is Dubbers.

    But as others have pointed out, it is very expensive - I'd probably say it's worse than London.

    And the weather is invariably shite.

    The Jameson's factory is hot on our list for our next visit. I believe they have quite a good eatery there too. It's sad really, we pass through Dublin quite often on the way to the ferry, but rarely have the chance to stop.

    For a good, reasonably priced, burger, I recommend The Bank Bar on College Green. Unsurprisingly, the bar/restaurant occupies a grand old bank building. It has a lively atmosphere, but is less touristy than the Temple Bar joints.
