We at Hassle.com love Dublin because there’s always something fun to do, even on a grey weekend! Also with some of the best bars and clubs around, you’re sure to have a great craic whatever the weather.
We’ve thrown together a list of our ‘Top Five Favourite Things To Do in Dublin’ for under twenty euros, now it’s time to take some time for yourself and enjoy the beautiful city you’re in.
Window Shopping On Grafton Street
There’s nothing that will put a smile on your face quite like taking a walk up Grafton Street on a busy day. Get lost in the bustling crowds and treat yourself to some of the best busking the world has to offer! Past buskers to hit the big-time include Damien Rice and Glen Hansard of ‘The Frames’.
Why not pop into Bewley’s of Grafton Street for a cup of their world famous tea, grab a seat by the window and just watch the world go by!
Hughes Bar, Chancery Street
Known as one of Ireland’s oldest, traditional music venues with a fun, inviting vibe, Hughes Bar is your one-stop for a great night in Dublin! Stop by with your friends on a Friday night for a few pints and the best live music around!
Leo Burdock’s Fish & Chips
The queue may be around the corner, around the clock but for less than ten euros why not head on down to Burdock’s world famous Fish and Chip shop and treat yourself to a fish dinner! You are sure to find the best chunky chips you’ve ever tasted, share them with a friend (at your own risk).
It wouldn’t be much of a top five list without a wild card and you’ll have to trust us on this one. One of the oldest churches in Dublin, the original chapel stood in the very same spot in 1066, but the real experience is found in the creepy church vaults! On a Saturday you can join a tour that leads you deep underground into the ancient church vaults where you can find mummified remains and actually shake hands with the skeleton of an ancient soldier! It’s safe to say that this is definitely a departure from your standard Saturday afternoon.
Head onto The Brazen Head Pub afterwards, a mere stones-throwaway from the church for fun, laughter and brilliant live music to shake off those creepy cobwebs!
The Guinness Storehouse
Another Dublin staple to round off our list, The Guinness Storehouse Tour is arguably one of the most popular tourist destinations in Dublin. Make sure you pre-book your tickets to avoid long queues and be prepared for the (mostly interesting) history of Dublin’s famous alcoholic beverage.
The real treat is the obligatory pint of the dark stuff at the end of the tour whilst you look out over panoramic views of Dublin, high up at the top of the Storehouse.
