Dublin Logistics

Jump to last reply

I think I have Dublin pretty well figured out except when to be where. We will arrive 9ish (two separate flights) on Friday June 14 and take the DART to Dun Laoghaire to pick up our rental car on Sunday June 16, giving us about a day and a half and two nights. We are bunking in at Trinity College so centrally located for walking. We are one slightly elderly (OAP discount eligible) granny and two student granddaughters (18 and 21).

What we want to do:
Hop On Hop Off Bus including free walking tour at 11 a.m. (have tickets beginning Friday)
Jeannie Johnston Famine Ship (may be included in HOHO; website not clear)
Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum Tours 11:30, 1:00 and 2:30 (pretty sure we will have
to take the bus to get here)
Chester Beatty Library (on HOHO route)
Literary Pub Crawl 7:30 p.m. (have tickets for Saturday)
Kilmainham Gaol (on HOHO route)
Perhaps a meal and session at The Old Storehouse on Friday (any other ideas?)
Of course, Trinity College tour especially the Long Room (may not get the historian out
of there)

1) How would you arrange this?
2) Where would you eat dinner on Saturday before the Pub Crawl? It begins at Duke Pub and they do serve food....anyone have another recommendation?
3) Any recommendations for lunch near someplace we will be anyway?
