Drinks & Nightlife
Good food, reasonably priced - I recommend the Sea Bass or the standard Fish and Chips. But hurry - can get full after 7pm Known for its famous visitors including Hilary and Bill (checkout the photos all over the place).

Well the Guinness is always excellent here - and that's a rarity. There's almost always some live music. This is a famous place - a drinker where politicians shady sorts have long rubbed shoulders.

Sightseeing
Take a seat next to Brendan and have a chat - say, about lighthouse painting and the like. Walk along the canal to Broombridge or Ashtown or even further and take the train back to Drumcondra

Like a UFO has landed in the middle of Dublin, it's the home of the GAA and well, you HAVE to see a match here. A HUGE stadium with a great atmosphere. There's also a museum here.

Famed for those buried here and the sheer number of those buried here. There is a museum to explain. This is still a magical place for a walk - but the Glasnevin Trust is now repairing the stones and placing them all upright again - which is a shame so get there before it's too late...

The grounds are open the public - so it's a nearby place for an evening stroll - and to see the only palace in Dublin(!)

Shopping
For food, groceries etc. I find the service here very good. The boss is great for a chat. This is sharp contrast to the nearby Spar - which I NEVER use (most unfriendly).

Parks & Nature
get here on a weekend and if the weather's clement everyone and his dog is out here picnicking. Well actually there are no dogs - which makes the whole thing a welcome contrast to other Dublin Parks. Only shame is that the place closes so early. Great to walk on into the Glasnevin Cemetery (special gate which also closes too early)

Arts & Culture
Understated gallery. Free concerts at 12 midday on many Sundays of the year (check the website)
You have to put some culture into a visit - and with Francis Bacon at your side - how can you go wrong. Free. Only a 15min walk from the house. Free concerts on most Sundays (check website) - arrive at 11.30 to be sure of a seat.
