Finding your way around Dublin
On a city break, typically your first port of call is to get your bearings. What better wait to orientate yourself around the City than to take the City Sightseeing Dublin Tour and to allow Dublin to come to you! Friendly guides are perfectly placed to advise you of the top places of interest to hop off at. Following your City Centre tour, wander hand in hand through the romantic cobbled streets of Dublin or take a walk in one of Dublin’s many parks. On a cold day, the complimentary Irish Coffee in O’Sullivans is a perfect remedy to inclement weather. The romantic City by Night Tour is ideal for couples who would like to see the Dublin City Scape by moonlight whilst enjoying onboard entertainment from our wandering mistrel.
Quirky Date Idea
Couples know that ‘Date Night’ or better still ‘Date Weekend’ is an ideal way to keep the magic in a relationship. Dubliners have long since flocked to the Zoo on romantic getaways whilst those with a quirky sense of humour bring their partners to the ‘Dead Zoo’. The Natural History Museum , which exudes Victorian Charm and scientific wonderment, is home to over 10,000 fascinating exhibits including the extinct Dodo and a 10,000 year old Irish Elk! Conversation will never be lagging following a trip to Dublin’s other zoo! Did I mention that entrance is free to this museum ensuring that you can treat your loved one at a later stage.
Dinner for Two
Dubliners are spoiled for choice in the range of increible eateries on offer. As the adage goes ‘eat fish to live longer however eat oysters to love longer”! Couples can eat their fill of locally sourced seafood at Dublin’s premier seafood restaurant Matt the Thresher. Following a romantic stroll through Merrion Square, treat your loved one to a beautiful meal in the conveniently located Blackboard Bistro. This Restaurant is perfectly suited for couples looking for high quality food at a reasonable price. It has a fabulous interior with good use of lighting to fit the needs of couples dining. The food is great, the staff are very friendly and the location, off Merrion Square is second to none.
Its said that the best things in life are free and romance doesn’t always have to cost you a small fortune and cinema nights have always been a staple of amorous couples. Rather than heading to see the latest release in a large chain cinema why not go to a smaller art-house cinemas such as The Lighthouse Cinema or the Irish Film Institute. Both Cinemas offer a grown up cinema experience with a full bar and you can even take your drinks with you into the screening! So why not kick back, relax and enjoy the big screen while sharing some organic nibbles, craft beer or a glass of wine. Top Tip: Arrive early to try and secure one of the Double Seats which make holding hands a breeze!
Concluding the evening
Following a great day in Dublin, enjoy some quality time together in one of Dublin’s wonderful Snugs. Fans of Irish Literature should stop off in Toners on Merrion Row and walk in the footsteps of our Literary Greats Patrick Kavanagh and Yeats, who made great use of the Snug as part of their literary endeavours. Toners have won the Snug of the Year which is a testament to the fondness that Dubliners have for this establishment. Nestling on the edge of O’Connell Street, the Victorian Palace Bar exudes the atmosphere of a ‘friendly Country Vibe’ in which Tourists and Locals mix well. The Palace Bar’s comfy Snug does not have a tv or music playing so couples can sit back and reminisce of their time in Dublin.
