If you’re visiting on a shoestring, Dublin has an abundance of free attractions and events for you to enjoy year round.
The Science Gallery on the Trinity College campus is the first of its kind in the world and a movable feast of sensory wonders. Equally creative is the National Gallery of Ireland. Keep your eyes peeled for Hellelil and Hilderbrand, The Meeting on the Turret Stairs by Frederick William Burton.This masterpiece was recently voted Ireland’s favourite painting. Stretch your mind and imagination with a visit to the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) or take in an impressionist or two at the Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane.
Shopping & Dining...
Shopping in Dublin doesn’t need to be a break-the-bank experience. For a taste of real Dublin, the Liberty Market is a must see. Moore Street has an abundance of fruit and vegetables at rock-bottom prices, and Asian Markets around the city stock a multitude of products at bargain prices.
Dublin’s lunch and early bird specials are remarkable even in some of the more traditionally expensive restaurants. Eateries on Parliament Street and Capel Street are particularly easy on the pocket.
Temple Bar and Aungier Street have plenty of second hand shops where you can rummage and pick up a potential gem. The Market Arcade on South Great George’s Street is packed with compact stalls selling everything from chinese embroidered dresses to fortune telling.
