    I will be in Dublin for a short stay in May. Any suggestions on where to stay, what to do (other than the conventional touristy stuff), where to eat, where not to stay, where not eat? Thanks ya'll.

    Hello.

    Try Afterhours. Should get the info you need there.

    Thanks for the push in the right direction.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,148 ✭✭✭✭Lemming


    Ah, was about to linky, but Rabies beat me to it :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 142 ✭✭MizzKattt


    I'm almost afraid to ask, but since my accent is a little noticable...what is the general conception of southern Americans?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 88,978 ✭✭✭✭mike65


    He! I would'nt worry about that unless you carry a burning torch and a cross!

    Mike.

    I'm trying to pack light, so I'm afraid those will have to wait until I have a more extensive stay. I'm also trying to leave the buckshot, the camo overalls, and the chewing tobacco at home.

    You just passed the test with flying colours! :D

    Mike.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 142 ✭✭MizzKattt


    Any quick suggestions on what to see in Dublin and surrounding areas?


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,148 ✭✭✭✭Lemming


    As Rabies mentioned above, try the After-Hours section. You'll get a much better response there to any questions, since the 'feedback' forum isn't really the place for this kind of question and not many people would check it that much.

    Dublin City Forum might also be a source of info.

    No banjo skills, but I play a mean pair of spoons.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 16,659 ✭✭✭✭dahamsta


    Gaff = House, Home, Abode.

    Or, ironically, a faux pas. :p

    I spent some time in North Carolina, the women are lovely, Not too many of those firey gone with the wind type though, which was a pity.

    Frankly my dear, I damn give a dont.

    We say 'Gaff' in reference to our 'house' or 'Home'!

    There are many places in and around the city center you could see and visit but i wouldnt restrict your stay to just Dublin alone!Travel around a bit if you can!

    With regards to your southern accent!Well it should attract more male attention towards ya anyways!

    Enjoy your stay!

    My best mate is from North Carolina/West virginia if thats near ya and they dont sopund that weird!

    Screw Dublin, it's practically a dump. Come down to Cork, where it really is a dump!

    Travel around the country a bit and see the various things it has to offer.

    One thing I'll say though, if you have any Irish heritage, don't talk about it for long periods of time. It might seem like an interesting fact now, but everyone's heard it from every American tourist a million times before, you'll do yourself a big favour by not even mentioning it :)
    (Please note, this is just an observation, I'm not even Irish)


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 16,659 ✭✭✭✭dahamsta


    Par example:
    Tourist: I'm actually Irish you know.
    Dahamsta: Yeah, and I'm from Atlantis. F*ck off.

    Go to Anseo on Camden St. It is the best bar in Dublin. Without a shadow of a doubt. Make sure you go on the w/end though, it can be pretty lame during the week.
    What are you into doing?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,398 ✭✭✭ando
