    Maybe I should have gone to Manchester then??

    I'll take my camera so everyone can see just what a great time one person on their own all night, probably cold, hungry, no one to talk to, etc etc, looks like!!

    Frank you can't just decide to go somewhere for your own reasons then make it sound like a meet up and guilt us into feeling bad for not going with only 12 days notice!

    I hope you have a nice weekend but "Is anyone free to meet me while I'm in Dublin" would have been a more appropriate title!

    When I was there (on my own) I ate at Juice mostly, it is very nice.

    There's another veggie place in Dublin called Cornucopia in Wicklow street...........it's very popular but a bit crowded. I think they are in the process of renovations at the moment though.
    I've already had 2 weekends away in Dublin in the past few months Frank, otherwise I'd have come down to meet you!

    I think I had a few nice breakfasts and lunches in Cornucopia. I have a feeling it is not open in the evenings - am I right?

    ETA Looks like it is open til 8pm Mon-Sat, 9pm Thursdays and 7pm Sundays. I think that is why I have never eaten there in the evenings.

    Also looks like the one in Powercourt Centre is called Cafe Fresh.

    I wonder if it's as crowded later on in the day as it is at lunchtime? When we were there around 1 pm there was hardly room to move!
    I hope these renovations are going ahead as it would be great to have more of a relaxed, restaurant feel about it.

    that's the one! awesome cake; good soup too. it's so funny when you put me in a veggie restaurant - so used am i to only having one or two choices, given a whole menu, it takes me AGES. this place too, it was almost all vegan that day, and i stood at the counter forever trying to decide...lovely guy behind teh counter thought i was a bit barmy i think.

    Yes - I ate at Juice too.

    The portions seem to have actually got bigger since my last visits there.

    Went to some pubs and clubs in Dublin


    People came from all over Europe. It was a good session

    I’ve never seen so many hen parties and birthday parties…




    That was night one (and morning!) out of the way… I was wrecked…


    Later that day my cousin came to see me at the hotel for a cup of tea and a chat. (Probably keeping an eye on me)

    The place I stayed in (Quality Hotel) was a bit of a walk to town.

    There are better places nearer I guess - so it would be worth a look around at what's available.

    The Travelodge is just too far from town (and too expensive).

    Take the airport bus into town - it was 6 euro I think. There are several - ask the driver which is the best to get to your hotel.
