Not long enough to enjoy in full
Alan Gifford, Lerwick, Shetland
We were in Dublin for just over 24 hours. We went on a sightseeing tour - hop on hop off. Anthony the driver we had first was hilarious, worth staying on just to listen to him! Guinness Tower was WELL worth the visit - highly recommended. Shame about the beggars who were everywhere. In fairness they did not pester us continually, but I did see some people who were finding it difficult to shake them off.
The best thing about my stay was ...
Friendliness of the people.
