Try a Guinness the way it is served - don't ask for "Ice Cold" Quote - "We're nothing if not precise; a perfect Guinness should be served at 6-7 degrees centigrade". That's 43'F.

Couldn't agree more! Also try the original Guinness, not the standard draught version. The original version tastes better IMO

I notice the only thing you didn't do in your 24 hours was sleep! I guess that's what the flight home is for. I'm somewhat older and have less energy than you, Seb. One of my favorite things to do in Dublin is to take a walk around St. James Park on a nice day. Or a stroll around Trinity College. But you definitely need to at least try the Guinness in Dublin. Even if you don't like Guinness elsewhere, the Guinness you get here has a better richer taste that stuff we get in North America.

Haha, there was a little bit of sleep between about 4:30am to 9 when I went, though I didn't mention it in the post! Had a nap on the flight home fortunately

Great post and welcome to TG! I spent a few days in Dublin last summer and it's also a good place to catch up on during a long trip. They have cheap internet places open 24 hours a day and good full service Laundromats where you can drop off laundry in the morning and pick up in late afternoon. it's about the same price as a luggage locker so good to use if going on a day trip and headed home

You can get a flight to Dublin from most anywhere in Europe - like here in Liverpool. Early flight to Dublin. Bus into the city. All day walking about. Bus back to Airport. Last flight back to where you're staying. Ryanair. Under $50

Those pictures are nice. It seems peaceful but lively. I've always thought I'd get to Ireland someday. What would you suggest for a week or 10 days?

DrFumblefinger ·
If you have the time, MickeyG and you want to do a road trip, then at least 10 days. Two weeks would be even better. Seven days would be really rushing it. Count on 3 days in Dublin, and then add up all the destinations you'll see. I'll be posting more blogs on this Ireland trip in the coming weeks, so it might help you decide what you really want to see there. But we had a great time. Wonderful people, great music, great fun!

I enjoyed the very colorful and pretty nature of the town. It was a busy enough, but still a very relaxing place to be. And the next morning we were off early to do the Ring of Kerry, which I'll post next week. That trip begins literally a minute out of Kenmare, so extremely convenient. I'd like to welcome Neil to...

This is a terrific tip ! --- For travelers with their own cars, the clockwise approach is preferable as you have the outside lane and better views all the way around and don't end up one small buggy in a convoy of huge buses. Your article makes us want to consider a trip to western Ireland, which has not been on the radar screen. The stone circles are worth the trip all by themselves.

Great pics and article. We were in Kenmare in 2010 and it was a nice overnight. We found a comfy b&b on the outskirts of town to spend the night. The following day we departed for the Ring of Kerry.

Thanks for the note, rbciao! We essentially did what you did. Just need to get the Ring of Kerry piece completed and posted (hopefully in the next week). It will bring back some great memories, I'm sure!

You will enjoy it, Jonathan, as did we! Dublin is great and there are many wonderful places in the country but my favorite single region was Dingle and the Dingle peninsula. It's amazingly beautiful and incredibly historic.

Certainly looks bright and colourful. Guess you were there in the Summer time. Always good to see a recommend for accommodation from a genuine visitor ! Thanks for the great views too. Maybe we should name the Camera we travel with ?

Thanks for the comments, Garry. I was in Dingle in October, but we had nice weather. And it was unusually sunny, which was appreciated and made for more interesting photography. Snow is rare in southwestern Ireland because of the warming effect of the Gulf Stream. So while it rarely gets really warm, it rarely gets really cold. One camera? Who travels with only one camera Garry? I thought you've have learned to travel with twins by now!
