So many things to see and do, so little time. Here’s my top five:
The Little Dublin Museum is crammed with items donated by the public and is run by locals, including a guide with a very witty repartee.
Cliff Townhouse where the locals dine or simply pop in for some Dublin oysters and champagne in an elegant Georgian house.
The Guinness Storehouse. Don’t be put off if you’re not a fan of the velvet brew. This converted grain store is fascinating and very professionally run by an efficient and friendly team. The vintage marketing displays are fun. The rooftop bar offers one of the best views in Dublin.
Take the little Dart a few stops down the coast to Glasthule where you will find Gavistons Food Emporium. Impossible to come away without buying something delicious!
The James Joyce Museum is housed in a tiny historic turret and is filled with treasures, including the author’s death mask. The steps leading to the second floor are a nightmare though if you suffer from claustrophobia so give those a miss.
