2Days Amsterdam/1Day Dublin or 2Days Dublin/1Day Amsterdam

This seems to be my dilemma.

Have a total of 5 days. 1 Day will be for Belfast period for the Titanic Exhibit and Titanic Dock and Pump. Another day for the Giant Causeway and whatever else I can do. So that leaves either 2 days for Dublin and 1 Day for Amsterdam since I only have 5 days total of Vacation time left this year or 2 Days for Amsterdam and 1 Day Dublin.

Amsterdam I have about 3-4 things I want to do or see for sure, but would like the time to explore as well. Dublin I have about 3-4 things I want to see as well.

Which city should I use the extra day for?

You have asked this question on the Amsterdam forum. This forum is mainly frequented by people who have chosen to live in Amsterdam, or visitors who have fallen in love with the city and keep on returning.

I think the answers that you will get will be almost unanimous in recommending Amsterdam over Dublin.

It's a shame you only have 3 days. I haven't been to Amsterdam, but I would suggest 2 days there if you are set on going, seems pointless spending 6 hours + of 1 day travelling to and from Amsterdam. I just hope that all you wanna see in Dublin is the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, the book of Kells and the inside of one of the pubs! ;-)

If you stay in Dublin for the one day take in the trip to Kilmainham first, Guinness Storehouse for lunch, shopping in Grafton Street in the afternoon, Temple Bar in the evening and O'Connell St a night - So you can do Dublin in 1 day and have the two days for Amsterdam.
