Davin's Dublin Tour

When Theo and I went to Ireland for the wedding we decided to spend a night experiencing Dublin before traveling on to Galway. Davin, the bride’s brother gave us a text message guide of Dublin’s bars which avoids the tourist-filled awfulness that is Temple Bar. We had a wicked time, so here is The Tour!

We were staying at the Jury’s Inn on Parnell Street so the tour starts there:

Exit and turn left, walk 5mins down Parnell Street to Capel Street. Turn left and walk south towards the River. Nealons on your right is just before The Liffey, lovely Guinness.

Next cross the river to Parliament Street, passing Zaytoon (great kebabs). Thomas Read’s is on the corner of Parliament & Dame.

Turn left out of Thomas Read’s down Dame Street. Eventually on the right is a small back street that runs parallel to Dame Street called Dame Lane. Here is hidden, on the right, a place called The Stags Head. Just after that is 4 Dame Lane with flames above the door which stays open late.

We enjoyed every single one of the bars, and Zaytoon fed us with, frankly, the best kebabs I have had.

A few excerpts from an article in this morning’s City AM (shame about the flash site):

Patientline, the company which offers hospital-bedside premium rater phone and television services has announced plans to cut the cost of calls, after admitting that a recent 160 per cent increase was “a mistake”.

The company caused controversy when it raised call charges for patients from 10p to 26p a minute in April.


Since the April price rise, Patientline has had to hold emergency talks with its lenders about its £80m debt.

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer company…
