Maltaran

Dublin in July?

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to Ireland for two weeks in July, and I'll be in Dublin for a few days starting on the 6th (Saturday). Anyone fancy meeting up?

Hopefully this post will actually work...

Sure. I should be around. :) Anything you want to see/do in Dublin?

Can't guarantee anything, but will do my best. Thursdays are out, but I'll try for most other nights.

Any more definite plans Malt?

(And courses til 5 on a Saturday - that's no fun Aoife?)

Ah, Malt, I hope I can make it to whatever is decided... :cheers:

I'm in a course until 5 on Saturday, but might be able to meet up for dinner after?

My ferry doesn't arrive until 5:25, so that's not a problem. Although by the time I've got off the ferry and got to the hotel, I'll probably just want to have dinner and then sleep, so another day would be better.

I'm leaving Dublin to go to Cork on Thursday, so that's not a problem either.

As for things to do, I know I want to go up to Tara one day. I will be looking at the various tourist websites over the weekend to work out what I want to see/do on the other days.

Bah, sleep is highly overrated, Mr and Mrs Midgetsbane met up with us directly after stepping off a flight from Arizona and didn't yawn once

No, this one's good. It's a craft course at This Is Knit, so not like school work or work work or anything. :lol:

Well, I'm around all the time - work during the week, of course, but I live city centre so evenings are fine with me too. I have another (fun) course Monday night, so that's out, and I'll still be on call until Wednesday lunchtime. So really Wednesday the 10th is best for me. I'll do my best to turn up wherever/whenever!

Sounds like Wednesday would work then. And i'll throw out Sunday as another option, in case that finds favour with people also.

Happy with any day myself. :) And then we just got to come up with a plan on that given day!

Both Wednesday and Sunday would work for me. No particular preference

I guess it comes down to what you want really?

The Stag's Head and/or Neary's tend to be popular as they are fairly central, have lots of seats, and facilitate chatting. Neither could be particularly described as modern but they are nice. Both south side central city.

You've somewhere like Davy Byrne's for historical / literary connotations.

I'll be honest and say I really don't know what's cool these days,

I'm happy enough to go anywhere. Malt, what would you like - maybe give a list of attributes and we'll play name that bar?

These both sound good.

Malt, have you any plans yourself Sunday or Wednesday? Might make it easy for us to decide between the 2 days. Sunday gives us a bit more flexibility time-wise but I don't mind really. :)

Stag's Head and Neary's are our traditional places. They just can be very crowded.

Lets go with Wednesday then. :) Just to give us all some clarity!

So 7pm Neary's Wednesday.

See you then! All are welcome. :)
