The Bernard Shaw is a bit of a walk from the city centre, but it's worth it! There is nowhere else in Dublin where you can drink a pint of beer and eat a pizza on a converted bus. The Bernard Shaw is a great place to meet new people and practise your English.
You can't visit Ireland without hearing some great traditional Irish music. If you want to hear some real Irish musicians, you need to visit The Cobblestone in Smithfield. Every night of the week you can hear some of Ireland's best musicians playing for free.

Only a short trip on the city train (the DART) and you are in Howth. Howth is a beautiful port just outside Dublin city centre. If you visit Howth, you have to try the fresh fish and chips and go for a walk in the beautiful surrounding hills.
