Three Perfect Days: Dublin

The Celtic Tiger may have lost its growl, but this auld town is as energized as ever, with bustling pubs, fast-evolving culinary and theater scenes and the warm, witty hospitality that’s given the Irish such a good name

THE INSIDE SCOOP FROM THOSE IN THE KNOW

ILLUSTRATIONS BY PETER JAMES FIELD

Fiach Mac Conghail

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, THE ABBEY THEATRE
“There’s a really nice restaurant called Ely Bar & Brasserie that’s only five minutes’ walk from the theater and close to the river. It’s perfect on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Also, a trip to see the Yeats exhibition at the National Library of Ireland is always a pleasure.”

Robbie Devine

CONCIERGE, THE FITZWILLIAM HOTEL
“As featured in Ulysses, Davey Byrnes Pub on Duke Street is a Dublin institution that serves a great pint of ‘the black stuff’ (Guinness). Also, it’s a good option for lunch, with excellent seafood. Or pop into my favorite, McDaids on Harry Street, for a great Irish coffee.”

Neasa O’Reilly,

PROJECT MANAGER, THE O2
“Dun Laoghaire on a Sunday is bliss. Stroll the pier to blow away the cobwebs, and then enjoy a zingy Froberry frozen yogurt on the way to a farmers market full of treats. It’s made to chill out even the busiest mind.”
