Dublin What to Pack: 58 reviews and 36 photos
No one on the bus
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We hardly had a summer here.. so always pack wet gear..and something trendy to wear out at night.. otherwise you will be refused entry, especially wearing trainers. Lots of cobblestones in some parts of the city so do take a good pair of walking shoes with you. This year 2006 we are having fantastic weather, hotter than the med. Check the weather before you arrive. Nothing worse than being too cold /warm.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can buy anything you want here...
Photo Equipment: Expensive, buy before you arrive.
Miscellaneous: Irish people and the weather:
It is often said that the Irish are a Mediterranean people who only come into their own when the sun shines on consecutive days
(which it last did around the time of St Patrick). For this reason, Irish people
dress for conditions in Palermo rather than Dublin; and it is not unusual in March to see young people sipping cool beer outside city pubs and cafes, enjoying the air and the soft caress of hailstones on their skin. The Irish
attitude to weather is the ultimate triumph of optimism over experience:
Every time it rains, we look up at the sky and are shocked and betrayed.
Then we go out and buy a new umbrella.
