Iâ€™ve been asked a few times for ideas and tips for those who are traveling to Ireland. I like to believe I am sort of an expert, at least for a first time traveler, since I went in October of 2008 for my honeymoon.
Post to check out:
Places to Check Out:
Murrayâ€™s Bar and Grill in Dublin: granted we didnâ€™t get to taste as much of the food as we wanted to around Ireland this place had the most amazing beef stew weâ€™ve ever had (and my husband even ate it being a vegetarian) and they had Irish dancing.
Hill of Slane in Slane: We came across this by accident as well but Iâ€™m so glad we did.
- Driving is intense, give yourself plenty of time and take some time immediately to get comfortable driving on the other side of the road and the tiny streets.
- From what we found, you canâ€™t find dinner before 6:00. We didnâ€™t have lunch one day so it was like 4:30 and we tried to get food and all the pubs were not serving food until 6:00. Also we brought a bunch of granola bars along with us, which helped.
- Be careful how you setup your trip, make sure you donâ€™t have to drive more than 5 hours in one day or else youâ€™re entire day will be about rushing to get from one place to the next.
- If you are lost and need help, go to a pub not a gas station.
- Everything is expensive there so we shared a lot of food and got appetizers mostly.
- If you are in Sneeth, get the Rebel Red beer, itâ€™s made by monks.
