Customer Travel Tip: Walk everywhere if you can! There is loads to see and lots of lovely cafes and pubs to stop at. St Stephen's Green is beautiful in the summer and autumn and definitely worth a visit. The Dublin City Gallery (Hugh Lane) is actually a lot nicer than the National Gallery!

Disliked: Strange traffic lights that would not pedestrians cross for ages, very chaotic seeming traffic.

Customer Travel Tip: Go on hikes up the Wicklow mountain! Don't stay in the city because the outside nature has so much more to offer!

Liked: Weather was awesome. I loved the nature Dublin has to offer. Went on Wicklow mountains for a hike and Great Sugar Loaf. Spent most of the time in the outskirts (Bray, Wicklow) instead of in the busy city.

Disliked: The city centre was too busy for my liking.
