What are the Dublin spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

It may sound cheesy, but Trinity College Dublin is one spot you can't miss. Make sure to book a tour or perhaps if you are lucky and have a friend/ family member they can give you a free tour. So many people visit Christ Church Cathedral when in Dublin. It's a stunning building so its easy to understand why. However, if you are looking for an even better experience come to evensong on a Thursday and hear me (along with the rest of the chapel choir) singing some truly stunning music!!

Do’s and don’ts in Dublin: (Ex: Tipping: yes/ no, public transport tips, safety tips etc.):

If you are coming to Dublin, make sure that you get a leap card!! This will be your best friend here.

What do you do and why do you do it?

I am a musician about to go into my final year of a music education degree. I suppose the reason I do it is because music has never not been a part of my life. Plus, if you go on a date no matter what the other person does you are always seen as more interesting haha.

Your all-time favorite musicians:

Queen, The Beatles and J.S. Bach (for diversity)

What’s the area in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Tempelbar!!! Take my advice and please don't bother going. It is a waste of time and no Irish person would ever be seen there.

Where would you take a date for a romantic night out?

Cafe Topolis- My favorite Italian restaurant in Dublin.

Drunk and hungry - where do you go in Dublin?

Babylon- the karaoke chipper.

Your go-to brunch spots:

The Bakehouse. There beans on toast is the greatest I have ever tried.

Special views that mainstream tourists don't know about:

Iveagh Gardens. This walled park is perfect for a walk or picnic.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Dublin. How do you spend it?

Doing the Bray to Greystones walk. The views are truly stunning.
