Or people who have been to Ireland. What should I do there? My main plan is to sit in bars with live music and stroll around in the streets. Going there in November on a solo journey so suggestions as to what else I should think about maybe doing will be appreciated.

Figured it'd be a good way to avoid mad amounts of tourists. I don't mind bad weather, I actually kind of like it.

Where are you planning to go, and how long will you be there for? My brother, a friend of ours, and I spent a week going up the west coast, starting in Dingle and ending in Galway. Really beautiful country.

Booked a hotel near central dublin, staying for 5 nights. I do plan to wander out to the countryside for a day trip or two.

I only spent a day there during my trip, so I don't have many recommendations. The Guinness factory was very neat, even if it is a rather obvious suggestion.

I found Dublin dull as hell. Rent a car and drive for 5 days.

Whiskey>Beer.

Edit: Lefty, what'd you do in Dublin? What were your expectations going in?

Walked, ate, drank, museums, book of kells - city stuff. It's not a particularly pretty city, not that interesting, people were kind of dull. And drunk.

That said, I loved Ireland once I got out of town. Met fascinating people, ate great food, saw things I've never seen anywhere else. Would go back in a minute. To the countryside.

I'll keep that in mind for the next time I go, this time around I'll see what's what in Dublin and nearby. Maybe go on a daytrip to the country and look for these fascinating people.

Concur with Lefty. Truth is, Dublin isn't a particularly "Irish" city, when compared to the stereotypical (in a good way) vision of the Emerald Isle. You should be able to get to Doolin in around 3 hours by car, which is on the west coast and a good base for hiking the Cliffs of Moher. Galway is even closer, and the Aran Islands are a fun day trip on the ferry from Galway. Alternatively, Connemara National Forest is just west of Galway, and makes for a really beautiful drive. Of course, I was there in July (and it was still a little rainy), so it might be a little different in November.

^ Listen to this fellow.

Cliffs of Moher are amazing. Aran Islands are cool, but I think I went to the wrong island. Galway is far more fun than Dublin. And Connemara is the place I want to be buried.

Thanks men! Will see what happens, might be whisked away by some beautiful irish woman and end up in the countryside for the entire stay.

(Wishing on falling stars, shed eyelashes, broken ponies and muddy pillowcases that that's what happens.)

No license I'm afraid, otherwise I would've definitely without even need for suggestion gone on a drive through the country. Cross your fingers for the beautiful irishwoman.
