Dublin or London??

I am thinking of going on a break to either Dublin or London. I was born in Dublin but have never been back over since I left as a baby. Any ideas on where offers the best fun for a few nights??

(If you post on the Dublin forum, the answer will probably be Dublin). Obvious but true.

Dublin might be cheaper though, financial crisis and all that.

During this "break" what do you hope to do? Immerse yourself in culture? Hang out at pubs? See a new city? Relax?

You might go by your local bookstore and have a look at the guidebooks for London and Dublin respectively; that might give you a better idea.

if you want a pub crawl and revisit your roots then obviously Dublin, it is a fun city but not huge amount to see in the way of culture and history, not when compared to London and other big European cities. For most first timer choices, to choose Dublin before London would be a bit bizarre so only head there if important to you personally or very much cheaper.

When in Europe,Rome, London and Paris need to be seen, cliche type comment I know but true nonetheless IME.
