Any suggestions? It's hard to figure out what a tourist would like to see when ya live in a place ya know. Free/cheap is preferable to exhorbitant. :)

Standing outside expensive places.
Knackah drinkin.
Pub crawl where you swipe unwatched pints.
Boarding a bus and patting yourself down for 5mins looking for
change and then disembarking.
Sitting in Stephen's Green.
Comparing the sociological differences of the 46A with the 17A.

And of course...
Riding.

IMMA sometimes has decent exhibitions, and they're usually cheap or free.

francis bacon paintings on loan in the hugh lane gallery at the moment, free i'm pretty sure.

get the dart somewhere nice. i like walking up dalkey or howth hills, bringing a picnic and a few spliffs. lovely.

malahide has a nice park and castle, castle tour's not free but there is a botanical gardens there too. glasnevin botanical gardens is lovely and free as well.

all of these are weather permitting i guess.

Museums - the Design Museum in Collins Barracks is great.
Chester Beatty as was already mentioned
National Gallery
Weather permitting a trip to Howth or Bray for a nice walk.

Closed at the moment I believe.


The Casino in Marino is only €2.90 each or something and it's brilliant.
I'll give a 3rd mention of the Chester Beatty library as it is also brilliant.

Well it's really good. IMMA is actually open now. I just checked and it was closed for a few weeks there, but is now again open. Yeah.
And sure Kilmainhams only down the way from that but I dunno how much that costs.

Also, the botanical gardens and Glasnevin cemetry over the other end of the city. The greenhouses of the botanical gardens would be nice and warm now.
