I’ve been extremely fortunate to be able to host family and friends from back home for visits in Dublin. I love having people come, because I get to do tourist-y things in the city, and it gives me an excuse to explore. This past weekend my Dad was in town to catch our cup game, and then some of the other victory scholars came into the city as well. It was so much fun getting to see everyone, and I took them to all of my favorite spots in the city. If you’re planning to come to Dublin- these are my recommendations to try out.
Its only been two months since I’ve arrived, and I’ve already gone to the Guinness Store house not once, not twice, but THREE times. I think I should work there by now. But on a serious note- its a really cool experience when you’re in the city. The tour is self guided, and the view from the Gravity bar on the seventh floor is beautiful. Its Ireland’s number one tourist attraction for a reason!
Bunsen is an AWESOME burger restaurant in the city. Theres one located in the Temple Bar district, and this weekend alone I went three times. Yes. It’s that good. Their menu is on a small business card, consisting of just choosing between a hamburger and a cheeseburger, with one or two patties. But trust me, if you like burgers, you HAVE to try it.
This restaurant is located in Temple Bar as well, and they are known for their wings. The wings here are delicious, as is everything else on their menu. They have a really good brunch selection as well, but honestly any time of the day you’ll have an awesome meal.
This is a small little brunch spot located on the water on Bachelor’s Walk. They have very aesthetically pleasing dishes- like avocado toast, acai bowls, and protein pancakes. I have gotten their acai bowl and protein pancakes, and they were both phenomenal. If you’re a foodie, you should definitely try this spot.
