List of TR's:

Kashrus
The KCI - Kashrut Committee of Ireland is the only Kashrus in Ireland.
The Rav Hamachshir is the Rabbi of the Dublin Hebrew Congregation Rabbi Lent - A Chabad Rabbi.

Kosher
SuperValu has a great Kosher Section with Fresh bread, challah, cheese, frozen/fresh meat, vegetarian (Tivall) products, frozen meals (can be reheated in non kosher ovens), wine and other basics are also available.
Open till 10:30pm seven days a week.
Address: SuperValu Braemor Road, Churchtown, Dublin 14

Bread Irish Pride Bread is Kosher (Re Pas Yisroel The Oven is officially turned off twice a year around Christmas Day and middle of the year around June 30 - Both times it is turned back on by the Rabbi. Some rely on this some don't, mainly because in this case there is no system for alerting the Rabbi in case the factory experiences an issue. Frum people in Ireland rely on this bread for 3 weeks after the fire is re-lit.)

Catering:
There is only one Kosher Certified caterer in Ireland, Melanie Stein.
Melanie cooks in the kosher kitchens of the Dublin Hebrew Congregation and is under basic supervision (ie there is not a mashgiach constantly on site).
Her email is melaniestein123@gmail.com
The Standard cooking is NOT glatt, nor cholov Yisroel or pas yisroel.
(In Development is a Mehadrin option - by RCArentals in conjunction with Melanie/Rabbi lent - updates to come.)

Any other kosher food besides from Hinda Bloom? Will be there for one full day

Not restaurant/caterer. There's a grocery store (chain store) near the Shul which has a small kosher section with packaged delis etc.

There's a baker with a few kosher items but nothing to write home about

Considering an itinerary that would land me in Dublin at 9:20pm, leaving about 9 hours later at 6am.

At that time of night, is it worth it to leave the airport and see a bit of the city? If so, what would I do?

I imagine I'd grab a bite somewhere, maybe walk around and try a pub or something.  But is it safe to walk around at midnight or so for a tourist? And would the shlep back and forth to the airport be worth it?

*EDIT: I should note I'd be flying BC and using GE.

We had 1 and wished we had a drop more time.


Don't know about night activities, lind, but the drive is not incredibly far from the airport, and I'm sure pubs will still be open.
