Dublin, IE
Umi Falafel
"Simple and fresh Middle Eastern food. Love this place. It's affordable lunch or dinner food that you can either get to go or eat in. They have pita breads or wraps which they fill with amazing fresh ingridients. The whole menu is Vegetarian. They have a few restaurants around town but the best and most easily accessible one is on Dame street. So so tasty."  —  Hudson Taylor

Grogans Castle Lounge
"This is a proper old man's pub right in the heart of the mainly pedestrianized area of Dublin's city center. It's hard to definitively say which pub in Ireland let alone Dublin makes the best pint of Guinness but Grogans is definitely in our top 3. Drink order is of course a pint of the black stuff."  —  Hudson Taylor

Bear Market Coffee
"This isn't in the city center. It's in the suburbs. You can take the DART (public train) only 20 mins out here. We love to get a coffee in Bear and then go and sit by the sea. When people visit Dublin the often forget how close it is to the sea!"  —  Hudson Taylor

Dun Laoghaire Pier
"Again, away from the city centre, taking the train takes you away into more open parts of the city. We love to walk Dun Laoghaire pier. It's a very impressive pier that was built in 1821. It's lovely to walk along either the East or the West pier. If you choose the East pier there's an Icecream shop called Teddy's at the end of it. Nice way to spend a crisp, sunny afternoon."  —  Hudson Taylor

Wicklow Mountains
"1 hour drive or bus journey away is the Wicklow Mountains. There are some absolutely stunning walks/hikes and interesting tours to be done in Glendalough particularly. Loads of great views and some proper fresh Irish air to be taken in."  —  Hudson Taylor
