  3. Great list for Dublin. Keep up the great work. It’s been years since I have been in Ireland. Probably it’s time for me to visit again.

  6. I went to Dublin for TBEX and I loved it there. Everyone was super friendly and I dunno…I just left with a good feeling about it. I would go back in an instant – and definitely read these posts!

    • We only had 5 short days to visit Ireland, and I would also love to go back. There was so much that we didn’t get to see, not just in Dublin, but the whole rest of the country!

    • Dublin does have a great food heritage and tons of great dinner programs and shows…we did get to check out a great music and dinner show in Dublin while we were there and had a great time. Any recommendations?

    • We spent 5 days in Ireland and it wasn’t nearly enough time. 1-2 days for Dublin was fine, but the great thing about Ireland is that the country is so small, you can see the whole rest of the country by an easy car drive.
