The Local _ Miscellaneous _ When is the best time to go to Dublin

Posted by: Zara 12.Jan.2007, 10:21 AM

Hi
I have never been to Ireland :? and I want to go there. When is the best time to visit and what is the shopping like?

I normally went in August each year.. Ferry from Holyhead
Dublin is party city every day/night.. According to the ex-wifey shopping was excellent !!! Seemed to get expensive though when they switched to euro...

But probably cheaper than England. I am always interested in new styles and designs, things that I can't really buy in England. So I love going to France and its different. I wondered whether Dublin's shops might be different.

Unless you actually would like to to have somewhere to sleep, and any hope of getting served in a bar.

Any time is good to visit Dublin. There are lots of Yanks there in the summer so spring is better. Shopping is OK but would be cheaper in England & much better in London. Get on Ryanair & have a weekend break soon.

Edit. Expedia.com is good for hotel rooms

Anytime is good to go but there is very little difference between shopping centres/high streets in Dublin and England. H&M, M &S, Topshop, same old shit everywhere. Much better to go for a weekend and go on the lash instead biggrin.gif

If you're into the fancy shopping mall thing there is a dazzling, sparkly all newish shopping centre in Dundrum.

Perhaps Paddy could show you around himself... he's in need of a 'rebound root' and you'll be able to soak up all the atmosphere while utilising his fluent Swedish vocabulary!

:twisted:

All the time is best. Going from pub to pub, and sit in the Guiness tower, get drunk and try to find your friends. There are even some good looking chicks there. Very friendly too... 8)
They even understand badly spoken english... laugh.gif
They even got a Mountain rescue team in Dublin. There's a "mountain" there which is taller than the Dutch Alps...

I think the highest peak may be 900m. A typical swedish mountain.

Its definitely more expense if you're a UK resident the since pound has fallen in value. great city though been loads of times

I have been to Dublin during the spring and autumn, it is a beautiful city during both times of year. Of course, being Ireland it is likely to rain so planning some things to do inside is always sensible - then you can change up your plans if the wet weather comes. So really I would recommend spring/summer/autumn smile.gif

Historically its very interesting. We went 2 years ago when the 100 year anniversary of the Rising was featured in many museums

For me Dublin is like London with Irish accents. Similar shops, bars etc. Avoid when big rugby or football games are on in Dublin. Costs go up.

If you want to see the real Ireland, hire a car and explore the West coast. Dingle bay is very nice. Galway is cool. Donegal is fantastic. Cork is a smaller version of Dublin. Limerick...don't bother. Tipperary is a sh*th*le, even though they wrote a song about it.

The real Ireland for me is raw beauty, green and cloudy, if not, raining. The people are friendly. The bars are fun and the country roads are dark.

"For me Dublin is like London with Irish accents" What a load of rubbish as London is full of foreigners and not Brits
