Will be back in Dublin during this time and will be traveling with another friend who has been to Dublin before but never out side the city other than Howth.
We've booked to see "Oliver" at the Bord Gais Theatre, plan on seeing the various Christmas markets and of course the Christmas lights around the city and was hoping to do a day trip somewhere. I'm not sure if Malahide Castle will be open by then but am also looking at taking the train to Kilkenny to see Kilkenny Castle. We tried to contact Collins Day Tours but they don't answer emails and when I called the number just rang out. Really were up for anything but my friend would love to see a castle.
Ideas? Thanks your help!
