This is our first day in Dublin. We will be back for another full day which we are thinking of taking a tour of New Grange with Mary Gibbons. The next day we will be there until early afternoon and would maybe see the Jeanie Johnson Famine ship or the Glasnevin Cemetary. We will be there another afternoon as well.
Here I just want to focus on my first day. Thanks for any suggestions.
Arrive 6:50 a.m (early but we won't waste a day)
After arriving at the hostel to drop of our luggage we plan to do the following:
Basically we will walk from our hostel which is near Trinity College to Kilmainham jail and see some sights along the way. We may walk back or take a cab. I've actually thought about a bike rental if there are good bike paths but I haven't heard anything.
Old Library (we will get a fast pass) to get in without staying in line. I'm thinking a 10:00 o'clock pass would be good to give us time to go through customs, take and drop off our luggage. We could do the Library last.
Kilmainham: It sounds like if we go later in the day that a pre-paid pass is what to do. Not sure.
Depending on the time: Here are some sites in between that we'd like to visit.
Dublin Castle (museum?)
St. Micah's Church
Grafton/Temple Bar walk/eat/drink sometime during the day
St. Stephens park.
Can we do all that in one day?
