Some of the least-expensive flights from the United States to Europe land in Dublin, Ireland. A smart idea is to spend a couple of days in Dublin, then continue on ultra-low-cost Ryanair to your final destination somewhere else in Europe.
This blog post lists 8 fun (plus one not-so-fun) activities to do while you are in Dublin.
The not-so-fun activity is the expensive cab ride into downtown. I’ve personally experienced a couple of the others (think Guinness brewery), and will be taking the list along on my next visit.
A ninth fun activity, not on the list, is a poetry pub crawl. This starts in the early evening and has a group following a poetry-reciter from pub to pub…great fun!
