Nice Bars To Drink In With Your Mum?
Favourite Spot To Bring A Tourist You’re Meant To Be Showing Around Dublin?
Take a Dublin Bike from Stephen’s Green to Dublin 8, stop at Christ Church for a look around, have a pint outside Beer Market to take in the vibe of Thomas Street, take a tour of the Guinness Storehouse before heading down to the Phoenix park for a coffee. Cycle up the Quays stopping in Dice Bar for one & return the bikes nearby before heading to Mulligan’s in Stoneybatter for dinner.
Any Secret Bars?
Library Bar upstairs in Central Hotel, The Whiskey Bar inside Market Bar open Thursday-Saturday from 5pm (entrance through the back of the barbers inside the George’s Street arcade) and The Blind Pig downstairs (press on the picture on the wall for the secret door to open (… honestly!) in Pacino’s on Suffolk Street.

Bow Lane as they offer you a variety of cocktails (not just bellinis and mimosas).

Start at Grafton street lower and make your way towards Stephen’s Green shopping centre for highstreet finds then hit the Powerscourt Centre for unique designs with a strong emphasis on Irish brands and then on to Temple Bar for some funky vintage pieces.
Best After-Bar Food?
Zaytoon on Parliment Street or Dame street for sure!
Best Places For Graffiti In Dublin?
Behind Whelan’s on Wexford Street, Behind the Bernard Shaw on Richmond Street or all around Windmill lane just there near Lombard Street… I believe this is where U2’s recording studio used to be and the graffiti started as tributes from their fans.

Howth, Dun Laoghaire or Bray.

Best Indoor Spots To Bring Kids On Rainy Days?
Any Unique Cinemas?
Best Rooftop Bar?
The Marker Hotel has a stunning rooftop but they don’t always open it (weather dependent), Marks And Spencer on Grafton Street have a gorgeous sheltered area upstairs where they serve food… they also serve mini bottles of prosecco so it’s the perfect place for a few cheeky drinks on a balmy evening. Sophie’s on Harcourt Street also have a beautiful outdoor area upstairs and Fitzsimons Hotel in Temple Bar are known for a good rooftop are but I’ve never been (will have to change that!).
Any Good Day Time Parties?
Ohhhh, they kind of just come about if you’re out with people in the know but Telephone’s do the most well organised & downright bloody fun day time parties in Dublin imo! Neds is a renowned little spot to keep the party going too.
