Dublin Airport

Dublin Airport, Swords, Co. 01 8628866

Fallon & Byrne

This is Dublin’s answer to New York's high-end delis … but with Irish staples. Two restaurants compliment the deli, and between the both of them, you can find almost anything.

11-17 Exchequer St
Dublin, Ireland

Four Seasons Hotel

Dublin has plenty of mid-range hotels to choose from, but why not do it up and stay at the Four Seasons. Not surprisingly, this place is one of the most luxurious hotels in town.

Simmonscourt Rd 4
Dublin, Ireland

The Gigs Place

Tourists recommend trying a “full” Irish breakfast when you visit Gigs Place, but locals say it is much better to try a “skin full” Irish breakfast -- with “skin full” standing for “a lot” of pints.

Richmond St
South, Dublin 2, Ireland


Tony visits Hogan's, a place well recommended for a night out, if you can get in the door. Food is not an option here … apart from the odd pretzel girl passing through.

35-37 South Great Georges St
Dublin, Ireland


Tony stops at Kavanagh's -- a locals-only establishment known to Dubliners as “The Gravediggers” owing to its location next to Glasnevin cemetery. It's off the beaten path, but this 150-year-old pub is a true Dublin institution.

1 Prospect Sq
Dublin, Ireland

The Long Hall

Decked out in full Victorian splendor, this is one of the city’s most beautiful and best-loved pubs.

58 S Great Georges St
Dublin, Ireland

Matt the Thresher

Tony heads to Matt the Threshers – a seafood joint that sources directly from the harbors around the island. They also serve up a special on oysters and Guinness (the Irish hangover cure) every day.

32 Pembroke St
Lower, Dublin 2, Ireland
