Dublin in a day- can all this be seen?

Jump to last reply

We are visiting Ireland late May/early June. We have 9 days and are slowly making our way from Shannon to Dublin- leaving us only 1 1/2 days in Dublin (2 nights- a full Sunday, and 1/2 Monday <our flight is at 5pm> ). We are more outdoor enthusiasts than city dwellers, so we are planning to maximize our time in Dingle, etc. We would like to see the "highlights" of Dublin (will have to visit again for more!), and are unsure what is doable in a day or so. We are not looking to cram everything in, feeling exhausted by 5 pm! but we would like to see what we can in a reasonable time frame.

We are planning to jump on the hop on/hop off bus (seems like this is an easy, economical way to see the sights?) somewhere near Trinity?....staying at the Aberdeen Lodge hotel, a bit southeast of the center and will take public trans. in. We're interested in seeing Kilmainham Goal- have read the tour is excellent! can anyone comment, does anyone know how long it is???, perhaps the National Museum, Trinity/book of kells, Christ Cathedral and/or St. Patricks- these 2 are less important- I'd be ok with a drive by if time doesn't allow, and end up at the Guiness factory (it is my favorite beer!) Perhaps we'd grab dinner in this area after, and somehow find public transportation back to the hotel?

Is this reasonable? Does anyone have recommendations re: pubs, restaurants in the Guiness Factory area (we're more people who enjoy good pub food than fine dining).

I think the following AM, we'll find something relaxing to do (as we sulk that it's our last day in Ireland!)- hang out at Stephen's Green?

Thank you for reading this and hope you can comment!
