Dublin Social City Guide

From The Guinness Store House to the cobbled streets of Temple Bar, Dublin is one city never short on what the locals call ‘craic agus ceoil’ (fun and music). But we here at The Gramlist believe that there’s so much more to a place than the top ten attractions listed in a guide book. So we’ve enlisted the help of our resident Irishwoman, Rachel, to curate a list sure to make your visit to The Emerald Isle’s capital city one you’ll never forget. (As long as you don’t try to keep up with the locals in one of Dublin’s many pubs, that is.)

Regardless of whether you’re planning a Eurotrip anytime soon, flights on Ireland’s largest airline Ryanair only cost, like, four dollars. (Only a slight exaggeration.) Get your stuff together and start perusing their seriously reasonably-priced flights before you miss out on their July 4th sale. (Also, side note: You have to give it up for an Irish company that promotes a fourth of July sale with a picture of Trump sitting before a framed picture of Kim Jong-Un.)
