10 must do things in Dublin!

10-must-do-things

I recently visited Dublin, Ireland for a little leisure time in February. I absolutely love Dublin, this was my second visit to the city and I have to say it’s a definite that I’ll return yet again in the future. I decided to put together a list of 10 must-do things in Dublin to persuade you all to pay this capital city a visit.

1 – Try a pint of Guinness

A pint of the black stuff does not take everyone’s fancy but when in Dublin…

2 – Visit the Guinness Factory

This is a really interesting tourist attraction. You will not only join the hundreds of people who have taken a selfie with the St James’ Gate Brewery sign, but you’ll be able to enjoy (or pretend to enjoy) a pint of Guinness at the Gravity Bar, with a birds eye 360-degree view of Dublin in all it’s glory.

3 – Get a picture with Molly Malone

Crying Cockles and Mussels, Alive, Alive, oh! The Molly Malone statue is now situated on Suffolk Street and is a photo must-have after visiting Dublin.

4 – Eat steak at F.X. Buckley’s

Please don’t order a well-done steak, that is a torture in itself. At least go for medium-to-well and appreciate the goodness that is F.X Buckley’s.

5 -Go on a pub crawl down Temple Bar

Pubs on the must-go-to list are:

Oliver St John Gogarty’s

The Auld Dubliner

The Quays

The Temple Bar

6 -Visit Dublin Zoo

A fabulous day out for everyone! There are so many different animals in this zoo that I couldn’t begin to list them. Go and see if you can count them yourself!

7 – Eat at Smokin’ Bones

Nom, nom, nom. That is all.

8 – Buy Donuts at Off Beat

The selection of doughnuts here is absolutely mouth-watering. I recommend the red velvet filled doughnut, YUM! 3 for €6 and you will not be disappointed!

9 – Visit the Archaeological Museum

This is a great way to spend your day, having a gander at all the different things found by archaeologists. You must check out the chilling bog boy, I have shivers just thinking about it.

10 – Visit the Science Gallery

This is a small but worthwhile visit. There are just 2 floors to explore exhibitions with the latest science and technology. Have a look at the colouring robot and control your very own robot!

If you get the chance to visit Dublin, grab it with both hands. It’s a brilliant getaway for a few days and I would highly recommend it! Don’t forget to check these things off your list.
