We got into port early and had booked a car through our hotel, which was much cheaper than the cruiseline price. We stayed 2 days in Dublin and would loved to have stayed longer. We did a tour in the James Joyce House where the author wrote Ulysses. Then started walking around the city. Found a great fish and chip shop called Beshoff which has been there for 104 years. Really great place, ate there both days. Walked almost 11 miles around Dublin finding beautiful churches, graveyards, a beautiful park called St Stephen's Green and great places to shop. My husband bought 2 tweed jackets and a vest at a place called Kevin & Howlin. Wonderful staff who were SO helpful. Loads of tweeds to choose from. They have ready made and also you can design your own. Great prices and they ship to the US. Another great store is Kilkenny. Really beautiful range of items. Finally found the Celtic cross I was looking for here. The next day we had booked an early tour to see the Book of Kells with a tour company called Letzgo City Tours. They book smaller group tours. We had an amazing tour guide Neil who was amazing, Loads of great stories and information. It was a walking tour which also included the Dublin Castle. We had about 10 people the day we went. Learned a lot and had a wonderful time. If we had stayed another day, we would have booked with them to go to St Patrick's Cathedral. Great incentive to go back to Dublin.

I always love to visit Dublin. Had a very enjoyable trip round the city despite the rain! There is plenty to see and even though it was Sunday and a catholic country after about 10 am everything was open. So there was as much to see and do as on any other day. Shuttle bus had a bit of problem getting to city, but that was because of a changed road closure at short notice.

Used hop on hop off bus. Great choice took us everywhere we wanted to see. Toured the distillery for Jameson whisky and this was very informative and guide very friendly and fun.

Been to Dublin a few times, but it was nice to see it from the boat. We were lucky with the weather as it was really warm that day. From experience I recommend the hop on hop off buses, u see a lot and get a lot of information as well. St James’ Gate (Guiness Brewery) is worth a visit. Temple Bar is great for pubs & somewhere to eat.
Really great to have an overnight in this port. Lots to see and do. The Hop on Hop Off Bus is a great value. You can bargain to get the price down.

I had been to Dublin before so chose the Walking tour and pub crawl. I was surprised to find that this was one of my favorite days. It was fun to mix with other like minded passengers and to hear all about the pub crawling days of James Joyce and Oscar Wilde and the like.
