Dublin – this is a pretty full look at what you can do in a few days. Open top bus tours – or perhaps you would like to sing-a-long with the Irishman who’ll dress you in greeny tweeds and sing Molly Malone for you beside her statue; on through the gruelling history of independence fighters held and executed in Kilmainham Jail; then through the fun of the Guinness visitors centre and finding out how Irish whisky is made by Jamesons. Travel by the tram and join a literary pub crawl round the city – see the Book of Kells – even find out where the inventor of the Crossword Puzzle is buried. This piece is full of life, the sounds of Dublin and runs to thirty-three minutes.
