What to expect in Dublin

Being a capital city, Dublin is not super-cheap but there are always ways to save money for example by eating in local restaurants away from the main tourist attractions and streets like Temple Bar, and by opting for accommodation a little further out of the centre and commuting in by local bus. Prices in Dublin range from €14* for a ticket to the Guinness Factory and €1*for a local bus ride. If you are not having a hotel breakfast you can find one in the city from €4* which a dinner for one will start from around €8*.
