Stop off for lunch at Bison Bar, a quirky venue famed for its BBQ experience. Continue your journey along the River Liffey and watch Dublin’s riverside architecture.
Get to a Festival
Dublin is famed for having year-round festivals. A fan of James Joyce? Get to the Bloomsday Festival (16-19th June) where Joyceans all over the world congregate in Dublin to celebrate the life and work of its favorite author- with Ullysees readings, live performances, breakfast walks. Celebrations include dressing up like characters from the book and in clothes that would have been the style of the era.
