And for a completely different experience, there’s always Guiness® – Guiness® in a pub, Guiness® with your meal of lamb stew in a restaurant, or a tour of the Guiness® Brewery in Dublin. At the very least have your photo taken at the famous St. James Gate entrance to the brewery.
What major city is worth its salt without a great shopping district? Here that would be around the area of Grafton and Henry Streets in Dublin. Hold onto your purse or wallet! The crafts are very tempting as souvenirs, such as various knit or woven woollens , china, and bodhran drums. There are book stores, brand name shops, boutiques, restaurants, clubs and theatres. Truth be told, I saved my shopping for the little towns and villages where I hoped for more of a bargain. My advice: you won’t necessarily get a bargain outside the city so if you see something you like, go for it!
