Our top picks in the local area
Once a small fishing village but now a busy suburb of Dublin, Howth is a great day out for everyone being close to the sea and a beautiful rural backdrop of the wilderness and heath land. There is an interesting castle to explore and a wander around the harbour with an ice cream should not be missed.
Malahide Castle is set in 250 acres of pretty parkland and presides over a little coastal town of the same name. It really is an enchanting setting, with walled gardens, turrets and trees and romance could not fail to blossom is such a lovely environment!
The Chester Beatty Library is probably one of the best museums in Ireland and maybe even the UK. This great building houses a varied and interesting permanent collection from countries across the world including papyrus Egyptian texts, beautifully illustrated religious writings, arts, sculptures and so much more. If you love interesting things, make sure you do not miss this.
Cows Lane Market is a hip, young, cool market where cutting edge designers mix with antique dealers, crafts and accessory stalls. Seriously funky stuff.
For eating out
Avoca is actually a craft store but it also incorporates a cafe and the food is what locals flock here for. Rustic staples served with hunks of soda bread are all sourced from local suppliers and when you eat here, you are eating top quality, traditional Irish food. Divine.
Club M located on Temple Bar is the place to party, party, party all night long. With 2 galleried dance spaces and excellent cocktails, this spot is always busy and the clubbers who have flocked here for years cannot be wrong.
