Day trip......

I've been to Dublin twice now, the last time for our wedding anniversary on 7th October 2004, a day trip from England care of Ryanair.

Early rising and long drive to Stansted, arrive in Dublin at around 9.30am.

Nice bus bloke tells us to get day rover ticket, as it's cheaper. As we go to the machine he drives off! Not to worry there?s another due any minute. Get off at Bus Station, as we were half asleep in O?Connell Street.


Have coffee and then head off to find the tourist open top bus... quite expensive but will save shoe leather... gee have you seen the traffic! ?

Take loads of pics - Millennium Needle (and traffic)


No visit would be complete without the Guinness brewery. Off the bus and in here, and yes, it does taste different to that stuff made in Park Royal in London!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Compact and loads to see
  • Cons:City centre could be anywhere in England let alone Europe, same GAP and other shops......
