Taxi will cost abou €20, but the airport bus will also drop you in O'Connell Street. It is almsot as quick as ataxi and a lot cheaper. I would concure with Tony on Temple bar being overpriced
Thanks to both of you.... I don't suppose you could recommend any good pubs for lunches around O Connell street as I'm staying opposite the gate theatre. Approximate costs would be helpful as I'm trying to set my 'budget' and have been worried about some horror stories!! The beer prices don't look too scary though??
You can have a look at food prices, menus etc here:
Here's a Lunch Menu at Foley's Bar + Restaurant on Baggott St:
and, from another city centre pub and restaurant: O'Neill's on Suffolk St:
Thanks again.... I think people get a bit carried away witht heir horror stories!! Seem like pretty average capital city prices to me.
Looking forward to the trip :)
If your breakfast is include in your hotel rate - fill up in the morning and this will keep yopu going well into evening (Is it Cassidy's Hotel by any chance?)
If breakfast is not included, or if you want a filling and cheap lunch, turn right at the Parnell Monumemnt (the big obelisk) and walk down to the Kingfisher -used by lots of locals for breakfast
If you turn left at the monument into Parnell St, there are lots of ethinic restaurants (mainly Chinese and some Korean). These are frequented mainly by the local immigrant community and are quite cheap (I haven't eaten here so I can't comment on quality)
Food prices have come down quite a bit and you will have good early bird menus before 7pm in most restaurants and most restaurants will have a reasonable lunch menu also.
The cheapest for a bottle of wine in a restaurant would be about €20 and a bottle of beer around €4.50. Most pubs will charge around €5 for a pint unless your drinking guinness/beamish which is usually a little cheaper than larger.
