Top 10 Things To Do In Dublin

Monday, September 1, 2014

Dublin, capital of Ireland and UNESCO City of Literature, is the perfect blend of cosmopolitan and traditional Irish culture. It is a city of extravagant nightclubs, cozy teahouses, ancient ruins and relics, and a collision of music, theater and experimental art. Incredibly, travelers to the Emerald Isle oftentimes skip over Dublin in their eagerness to […]

Video: In Honor Of St. Patrick’s Day

Thursday, March 17, 2011

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day today, I thought I’d dust off an oldie but goodie: my Dublin travel video. In this video I basically roam around the Guiness Storehouse, but in Part Two, I head to the St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, an appropriate destination for today. It’s been a while since I took a look […]

In Part Two of my travel guide to Dublin, Ireland, I head off the beaten path to get a better sense of the city.

Dublin is one of the world’s most popular travel destinations, and a few days spent there shows why.

The 14 Best Pubs In Dublin

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

In pretty much every city in the world, you’re going to run into people that will swear on their mother’s grave that this particular bar is the best in the world, and that you should not let anyone tell you otherwise. This is ever so true in Dublin, the mecca of fine pubery (yes, I […]

Dublin’s Alternative To Temple Bar? Maybe

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

The NYT is all about Dublin right now. After being mentioned in their article about dirt-cheap flights to Europe (Dublin is singled out for its $312 ticket from Newark — the same one I snagged last month), they also went ahead and published an article highlighting the up-and-coming Dublin neighborhood of Smithfield, just a short […]

Images From Ireland

Sunday, April 19, 2009

[mbs slideshow=1] Here are some highlights of my trip to Ireland in April of 2009. 1.     St. Patrick’s Cathedral: Dublin. Reputedly the site of a well that St. Patrick himself used to baptize newly converted Christians, the well has since been filled in by the British and the exact location is unknown (as was told […]

How Necessary Are Sheep In An Irish Travel Video? Very

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

In preparation of my Ireland trip beginning next Tuesday, I decided to try to bone up on travel video making by watching a lot of Anthony Bourdain (I’m finishing up Season 1) as well as some old Michael Palin travel video (for you Netflix folks, you can stream his first two shows on your computer: […]

Travel Video Wrap-Up: Learning To Fly in Hawaii, Learning To Drink In Dublin, Learning To Eat In Vietnam

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

I’ve always wanted to learn how to fly, and now I really want to learn how to fly while in Hawaii. Highlight: Check out Akaka Falls at 3:16. Probably amazing on the ground, but even more so from a thousand feet in the air. Colin something-or-rather (his mic somewhat blows) over at HostelWorld.com brings you […]

Dublin On The Cheap: Act Like A Dubliner

Friday, February 27, 2009

Want to save money while traveling: avoid the tourists. It’s axiomatic, but its surprising how often travelers forget this simple little truth.
