In Dublin for 2-3 Days

Hi,

Will be visiting Dublin for the first time over three days in mid to late September. Looking for recommendations on museums, lively pubs/bars/places to meet people, parks and any other must-do's. I'm a big food fan as well, so any under-the-radar info on restaurants and markets would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

As far as a good "Foodie" restaurant in Dublin,I recommend "The Mermaid Cafe" on Dame Street.
Had dinner there last April,and was very pleased with the food and wine list.
Its not inexpensive,but compared to many other places that I've ate at, it was good value for the money.

1st on my list of things to see in Dublin is Kilmainham Gaol which is a bit off the main city center, but not far. One of the hop on hop offs goes near it. Trinity college and the Book of Kells gets a lot of interest. The Brazen Head Pub can be either a tourist trap or a great place to hear some trad music depending on the night of the week. The Cobblestone Pub, again off the beaten track but easily reachable by LUAS is a haven for some great Irish music sessions.

My favorite resturant in dublin is l'Gueuleton http://www.lgueuleton.com/
My boyfriend and I took my parents there for thier 30th annivesary when they came to visit and they are STILL talking about that meal months later.

Also on saturdays there is a food market in Temple Bar at meeting house sqaure which is good fun
and annother market on sudnays in Dun Leery (20 min DART ride) in the people's park right on the coast.

The Stag's head is a great pub, especially with the live music downstairs, but I'm sure wherever you wander into will be great. Enjoy Dublin!

You have to hit Zatoon (sp?) for some late night bar food. It is Persian, which at least around here, is tough to find. It is very authentic. My Persian mother-in-law spoke farsi with the owner and had him whip us up a whole feast!
