    Just booked a trip to Dublin for Spring Break and St. Patty's Day...anyone on here have any suggestions on the area?

    Edit: Early plans include tours of the Guinness and Jameson Factories

    Re: Dublin

    No offense, but threads like these bother me. I always see people booking awesome vacations to amazing destinations and my St. Patty's Day will consist of two dollar bottles at Paddy's in Ames while wearing the only green shirt I have so that nobody pinches me or asks that ever annoying question "Do you have any green on?" You are going to be in Ireland on St. Patty's Day---hmmm, pretty much anywhere is going to be a good time.

    Saint Michan's Church- Creepy church that Bram Stoker modeled creepy settings after in "Dracula". There are naturally mummified bodies in the cellar. Cool as heck.

    Phoenix Park- Beautiful "central park" of Dublin

    I second the Guinness Brewery, if you're into that.

    Also, Deacon Brody's Pub has a great story behind it, and see if you can find the statue that the locals call "The Floozy in the Jacuzzi".

    Ireland is expensive, so be sure to have plenty of money saved up.

    You can get some cheap flights to Europe these days... I got an email about round trip to Amsterdam for around that... If I didn't have so much going on this year I would have snatched it up...

    Saint Michan's is pretty cool.

    How many days are you going to be there? I prefer the western side of Ireland. The Cliffs of Mohr in county Clare are spectacular. The Burren, The Ring of Kerry. As you can tell I prefer the countryside as opposed to the city.
    It's a small island. You can do quite a bit of driving in a week.

    Re: Dublin

    My wife and I leave for Ireland on Friday!

    Self-drive tour that ends with two days in dublin. Jameson and Guiness storehouse are on the list.

    I belive some history majors from Trinity give a daily walking tour of Dublin and there is a Literary Pub Crawl that we might check out.

    Friday can't come soon enough!
