Travel like a Local – Dublin (Ireland)


5 Places Locals Love in Dublin, not the usual tourist attractions! 

1. Whitefriar Grill

Warm, casual, friendly Firm favourites on the menu include Crabcake Benedict, or Chocolate Fondue.  If the brunch tickles your fancy, make sure you book ahead. This place gets BUSY. And with good reason. Pro tip: Check in with Yelp and get a free Bellini!

2. Sant Michans Church

A tiny church nestled behind the Jameson Distillery – it’s often overlooked for the bigger grander eclesiastical. Pay five euro and visit the crypts under the church, where you will get up close and personal with the naturally mummified bodies of ….

3. The Little Museum of Dublin

U2, 24 carrot gold crisp packets, and a first edition Ulysses with a note from the man himself. In the Little Museum Of Dublin you’ll find an incredible, and often hilarious, range of Irish history from the last 100 years. Make sure you turn up on the hour for a guided tour – you won’t regret it.  Try Hatch & Sons underneath for a hearty lunch afterwards.

4. John Kanavagh The Gravediggers

This pub, nearly attached onto Glasnevin Cemetery, is one of it’s kind. There for eight generations, the bar area looks like it hasn’t been touched since it was built. Our advice is to build up a thirst around the intriguing Glasnevin Cemetary, then settle into the Gravediggers for one of the best pints of stout in the city.

5. Temple Bar Food Market

Tourists may have been told to stay away from Temple Bar, but actually there is a resurgence in the area that is far, far away from it’s tacky past. The Temple Bar Food Market is on a Saturday – come and try fresh products from all over Ireland, then wander around the eastern part of the area through the galleries like the Gallery Of Photography and independent shops like The Gutter Bookshop.
