We have three nights in Dublin in July, arriving around 21:30 on a Friday night via AirCoach from Belfast (which means this is our second night and we will still be jet lagged). I think we could go to one pub Friday night after checking into our hotel and Stag's Head and O'Neill's both look close to the Morrison where we are staying. Each of them would be on pub crawl #1 below or instead of those pubs we could go to the Palace Bar for a drink Friday night? Saturday or Sunday night (depending on your response) I have planned a pub crawl, two different one's actually and which one we go on depends you your responses. The non-pub crawl night we will have dinner at L Mulligan Grocers and then go to the Cobblestone pub. Here are the crawls (open to any suggestions):
A couple of other things-- I am not a beer drinker, not a big drinker at all ( I will make do with wine or a mixed drink) and there is no way I will have an alcoholic beverage at more than 3 places, including a lovely Irish coffee, that is why having dinner at one of the stops would make sense to me.
Would like to spend more time at one or two of the stops with music which seems to start earlier on Sundays.
I know these choices are frequented by tourists since they are always mentioned but I am a tourist.
Thanks for your input. These boards have been invaluable in planning our trip.
