    Go to Jameson's for an hour to say you were there and then get out of Dublin if you have the time. Dublin is meh at best. It's the countryside that is where you want to be.

    Doing the Jameson tour. That's about the only thing we have planned in the city. We're taking a tour to Galway and another place, just not sure which days. Also I have my drone so I'll take some pics if it's not raining.

    Check out the big tours. People seem to like teelings whiskey tour better than Jameson.

    To me best tourist thing is kilmainham gaol but that's very popular.

    From ballsbrodge, you can pretty much walk to town. Lots of friendly people in all the pubs.

    Maybe take the train out to howth for a hill Walk or dun laoighaire on sunday for the food market.

    There is a good outdoor food market in merrion square for.lunch today. I think it should be on although there is a climate protest happening in the park.

    Glasnevin cemetery is cool and not far from drumcondra.

    Try and check out the long hall for a drink. A classic.

    Do an evening in temple bar. Very touristy but can be fun.

    Let me know if you wamt restaurant suggestions.

    Let me know how you get on or if you have any questions.

    Dublin is small, so you can see most of it in a short time.

    Remember, drumcondra is the north side which is considered the less "salubrious" side of Dublin.

    You'd have to cross the river liffey to be on the Southside.

    Ballsbridge is definitely Southside and fairly posh

    Yeah it's kind of dumpy here. Last minute booking. Don't plan on spending much time here. Just a launching point until we move tomorrow
