Best things to see in a morning

Hi

We will be arriving in Dublin on January 2nd 2014 and have about 6 hours to look around before we get our train to Kilkenny. Any advice on best things to see or areas to go to?? Many thanks, Wendy

I'd get up really early and watch the sun rise over Poolbeg lighthouse.. It's something most Irish people have not seen.. The lighthouse is located at the South Bull and is very close to the City Centre! Sunrise over Dublin Bay is a pretty amazing experience if you get the right morning.. I've added a couple of my pics from this site.

I'd agree with Cavan, get on the HOHO bus for a good overview of the city, and get off for an hour or so at Kilmainham Gaol.

Get to the station in good time, the platform for the Kilkenny train is about half way to Kilkenny. :-)
