A fantastic freshly cooked breakfast with good strong coffee. Probably the best value in town and even better if you can get a window seat overlooking trinity college.

I love this store. It a great place to buy quality items as gifts, if you need a wedding gift for a foreign wedding you can mail it and purchase tax free. There is a nice cafe restaurant upstairs too. Well worth a visit.

Any suggestions for hotels in Dublin near Nassau Street, opposite the Kilkenny Shop. We are needing a one night stay in August before catching a tour at 9 am. Would like something lower that $300 per night if possible.

Without knowing how many Euros your $300 (US, CND, AUS ....) and the actual date, there is Buswells or two O'Callaghan's Hotel group hotels nearby that usually are less expensive.

Our 1-night trip to Dublin didn't go exactly to plan, but we still had a great time. We were late leaving east Clare, driving via Gort to Loughrea, where we picked up the motorway to the airport. We stopped to refuel at applegreen services, and didn't get to the airport rental depot until 2pm. Now, I had totally forgotten that there were going to be protest marches in towns and cities across Ireland on Saturday (not that I could do much about it!); it took Aircoach almost 80 minutes to get...More
