Long Weekend in Dublin: Tips Requested

In October I wrote about cheap flights to Dublin and since I’m Irish and all, I ended up booking a small group trip with some family and friends since we were able to get roundtrip tickets for $370 total on Delta. Since I am Diamond Medallion (at least for the next week or so), we all got Economy Comfort seats for free so stay tuned for my review on that experience.

We are also staying at the Westin Dublin on a reasonable “Taste of Dublin” rate that includes breakfast daily – and as SPG Platinum we got some sweet upgrades. I’ll be filming this Sunday’s reader question response from the hotel, so stay tuned for some video and a dedicated review of the hotel.

As always, feel free to share any tips on Dublin – we purposefully didn’t plan much this weekend, so I’m open to any and all suggestions!
