We had been to Dublin a few times and did not book an excursion because there are so many things to do on your own. We went to the cathedral, saw the Book of Kells, the castle, shopped and ate - fun day.

Dublin is a favorite city of mine. Since I have visited several times already, on this visit we did The Guinness Experience: A Taste of Dublin. We saw many historic sights on the way to the Guinness Storehouse Museum. We passed the Old Parliament House, Trinity College and the Irish Parliament. We visited Georgian Dublin with its lovely homes, The national Gallery of Ireland, City Hall, St Steven's Green & St Patrick's Cathedral. Our guide made a photo stop near the cathedral in St. Patrick's Park for more explanation. We also passed Dublin Castle, Christ Church Cathedral before heading over to the Guinness Museum. The Guinness tour ends up at the Gravity sky bar for a pint of Guinness and beautiful views of Dublin. We bough two sets of engraved glasses in the huge gift shop.

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.

As for the port itself - 1 star as it is in an industrial area with nothing but cargo containers, other ships and some construction going on. However, since we have been to Dublin before, we just opted for transportation into Dublin, some time and $ well spent at Guinness after a few proper pints, some shopping, a great dinner at FX Buckley Steakhouse on Crow Street in the Temple Bar area, lots of walking around, but well worth it to experience such a great city.

Dublin was nice but like many large cities. If you do the Guieness tour it's really a self tour with a lot of videos. It's 7 floors of info. Not from from there is the Brazen Head Pub. The oldest in Ireland from 1189. Friendly staff, good beer and food looked good.
