off to dublin tomorrow with some mates thanks to the ryanair 2p ticket offer but ive got a few questions. firstly will i have to get my cash converted to euros or do places still accept good old sterling, also can i just pay using a switch card or will my bank tear me a new one with charges? anyone know how far the airport is from the city centre and the cheapest way of getting around is? and lastly can anyone reccomend anything interesting to do? plan currently is to just get there and see what happens

You need Euros.
We got a bus from the Airport to city centre for 5 Euro. Its a fair bit out.
Switch card will depend on your bank no doubt. Payin with card it will depend on what rate you get with the bank anyway as it will all need converted when you make purchases.

we came back last monday, the bus into town was 6 euros each but the 3 of us got a cab, into town thursday evening it cost us 25 euros, back to airport moday afternoon just 18 euros, taxis are everywhere! i take some euros but there are plenty of atm's around that even took my horrid electron, though rates would depend on your bank, look online and you should be able to find out quite easily

as for what to do, how long are you going for? how many of you? age range? where are you staying?

we stayed in the centre of Dublin, was able to walk literally everywhere, plenty of and a wide range of restaurants around and we were just minutes from Temple bar :) pub after pub after pub!! (can be pricey we thought tho)

we visited The Guiness storehouse and kilmainham jail and went on a ghost tour, all in easy reach

you can buy a hopper pass for the tour bus which gives you 24 hour unlimited ride :) HTH

im sure no matter what your interests are you will find loads to do, we were also very close to Dublin Castle and st Patricks Cathedral, Trinity college and more but didnt have enough time to do it all!

Grafton Street is good for shopping with st stephens mall at the end :), and its opposite st stephens green if the weathers nice lol

its just a day trip, 7 of us aged 18-20, just looking for a laugh really. i think the guiness factory will be one of the places we go to. would be a crime to go all that way and not visit!

well if you can, book the storehouse on line, you save 10% per person, not a great deal but you also get fast track entrance, you get to go straight to customer services to get your tickets (you will need to print off the email to take with you), saves a bit of time,as the Q did get quite long :thumbsup: it was interesting but might take up alot of your time if youve only got a day trip planned, so i hope you all have a big interest in guiness and its history!

for a day trip at your age the time will fly by with the amount of pubs ect, temple bar is a must for you all imo, as youve no luggage and 7 of you, the bus to and from the airport will probably be ok, they are very frequent :-D

Enjoy yourself.

Temple Bar area, avoid at all cost, go find some "real" bars of the beaten track.
#12
thanks for the replies, ive been told to avoid the temple bar area simply due to the high costs since its a tourist hotspot. i dont drink so costs dont really worry me but my mates wont be able to afford pints at 4 quid each! will just see how the day goes, and i'll hopefully have some pics up on here this tomorrow
