Customer Travel Tip: stay somewhere central-ish. and spend at least 2-3 nights in Dublin - walking around is a great way to explore Dublin and maybe buy a ticket for a hop-on hop-off tourist bus.

Liked: a lot really - nice pubs, nice river, a lot of cool attractions and sights, a great cinema too. and a good base for my 5 day shamrocker adventures tour.

Disliked: sad to see all the rough sleeping and homelessness, although you get this in a lot of cities and capitals. Very sad sight to see a drunk man wet himself whilst walking over a bridge over the river in Dublin.
