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.
Same, I was there for 1 day, I probably would have liked 1 more day there

Sure, that's 3 days in Ireland. Not enough to see every single thing, but still a nice trip.

In 1.5 days, we did Jameson Factory in Dublin and Titanic Museum in Belfast. Would have liked more time in Dublin, and would have liked to check out other areas in the country. Not sure you can do the whole country in 3 days, though, so pick what you're interested in.

The Jewish Community's website (http://www.jewishireland.org/visiting-ireland/food/) lists the Bretzel Bakery as having some kosher items.  Someone upthread (@yehuda?) said the bakery wasn't much to write home about. I recognize that the cafe there is not kosher; I'm only referring to the list of items (apparently available in store) identified as kosher.

Any more details about it? Does the Dublin Community generally accept the kashrut of those items?  Traveling with my three teens, and even though we only have one-half day in DUB, everyone will be much happier if I can get them food other than our packed provisions of Clif Bars, tuna or beef jerky.  ;)

I went there. They have some breads and cakes, it was perfectly edible but in no way an experience to write about

I can't vouch for the kashrus beyond the website.

Thanks, PG. We'll get the "ok" from our LOR. My kids will be happy with breads and cakes. :)

I am arriving into DUB on Tuesday November 15 at 9:10 AM. I have to be in Stamford Hill for a wedding on Wednesday November 16 at 7:00 PM.
After a whole night flying sleepless I do not think I will be down to tour for the day. I will be very cranky and tired. my question to the field is, is it worth staying in Dublin for the night and then do a half a day in Dublin on Wednesday or am I better off just going straight to London?

ETA: flight from DUB is 4:00 PM on Wednesday with FR.
