Originally I did not plan to visit the Cliffs of Moher, but we had a free day to visit it. I cannot believe I nearly wrote this off my to-do list. The view is outstanding and a site that must be seen when on the west coast of Ireland!Popular withOutdoorAdventureBudget

This bar is owned by one of the hotels we stayed in during our Dublin stay. A nice clean pub with a lot of locals and provides a number of nooks and crannies to have a nice conversation with friends. We ducked in here to watch the Irish horse races. Off track betting right nearby. I'd definitely stop in here ...Popular withTrendstersNightlife

If you want a recommendation for a warm and cozy pub, definitely check out Monroe's. They've got open fire pits and a great atmosphere, especially on Tuesday nights when they feature traditional Irish dancing on a regular basis. If you get hungry, you can grab a pizza at the attached Monroe's Pizza Cabin. Upstairs there's a large (and popular) nightclub ...Popular withAdventure

A nifty (and very grand) building within walking distance of the city center. As much as this monstrous cathedral is a sight by itself, the walk there from the center of the city is quite nice. From wherever you are, make a beeline for the river, then walk along the river in the direction of the cathedral. There's a mini-park ...
