Our top picks in the local area
The National Museum of Ireland houses one of Ireland’s premier collections of artefacts and significant Irish materials. It is an engaging and inspiring museum and there is something for children of all ages, but will perhaps be of more interest to older kids and teenagers. That said, everyone will love the Natural History section.
St Stephens Green is one of the original green and open spots in Dublin and for year’s incurable romantics have some here to wander hand in hand. It is especially lovely in winter when early morning frosts glitter in the trees and on railings before it gets crowded with tourists and busy Dubliners on their way to work. Alternatively, opt for a full blown romantic gesture and hire a coach and horses for an evening tour of the park.
George Street Arcade, while being a mecca for shoppers, is a worth a visit even if you leave your wallet at home. The impressive Victorian Gothic facade is stunning and sheltered and a great place to admire the surrounding area and indulge in a spot of people watching with a cup of something hot.
The Asia Food Market has been a mainstay for budding chefs for years and is a friendly place to come by hard to find store cupboard essentials. Stock up on the basics and more exotic ingredients such as chickens feet and hot chillies.
For eating out
The Pepper Pot located on a balcony of an impressive period building is an unassuming place to eat on the run, while shopping or taking a long break from the daily grind. It is eternally popular with locals and tourists alike who come for the ‘to die for’ cakes and sponges. It also does a very decent line of savoury dishes which will warm your cockles, especially in the winter months.
Opened in 2007, The Button Factory has fast established itself as the spot to listen to live music on Temple Bar. From Thursday through to Sunday the pumping sound system takes over and the thronging crowds pulsate to a beat of their own.
