I have a terrible habit of getting stuck in a rut (my current rut involves Accents Coffee Shop, St Stephen’s Green, Crackbird, Stir Crazy Noodles, Merrion Square Park) so having been back in Dublin for over a year now, I am still on a mission to see and do more in the city.
So, here is my to-do list…
1 – Take a bus tour around the city – This sounds hugely touristy, but I’m sure there’s a lot I don’t know about some of the landmarks in the city.
2 – Go to the Little Museum of Dublin – I’ve seen some reviews of this place and it sounds cool, kind of a quirky view of Dublin. They’ve just introduced a U2 photo exhibition, so I think it’d be worthwhile to see. It’s a fiver in (free if you’re unwaged), so why not? It’s up on St Stephen’s Green, so could be part of a lovely afternoon out.
3 – See the mummies at St Michan’s Church. I live so close to this place that’s it’s ridiculous that I’ve not visited yet. They’re open Monday to Saturday, so I need to get on it. Creeeepy.
4 – In a similar vein, I REALLY want to do the Northside Ghost Tour. Again, so close to chez-moi and creepy and spooky. The Hellfire Club Excursion sounds class too.
5 – Try the Dublin Bikes Scheme – Since my own bike, Maud got stolen by some little scobie feckers last year (I’m fine about it now, *sob*), I’ve missed our Sunday morning cycles around Phoenix Park, so I’m considering buying a three day pass/tickety thing for the Dublin Bike Scheme to give it a try out. They look pretty heavy and could be hard to manoeuvre, but for e2 for three days, sure I’d almost be making money! 😉
So, that’s my to-do list for the moment (I always add stuff!)… is there anything else you’d recommend?
Or anything on my list that you’d like to try out too?
PS – hot chocolate in Accents – PHWOOOOAR!!
