Here's what Trippy members had to say about restaurants:
"Dublin and The Palace Bar There are also some great bars in Bairro Alto Lisbon and I have a really soft spot for Perch in Los Angeles" See More
"For a real treat (and here the Irish Coffee is a must, and made at your table) go to Chapter One Restaurant a Michelin starred place that has a great (and good value) pre-theatre option - you must book ahead as it's always busy and although a little expensive the food is absolutely worth the price." See More
"A little more upmarket but with a great early-bird special is Pichet (a 10 minute walk) or, one of my favourite little places The Vintage Kitchen (exceptional value for lunch and a byo wine) - book ahead it's always busy and is a tiny place but the food is consistently good." See More
"If you decide to visit the Burren you could go upmarket and stay in Dromoland Castle Hotel or, at the other end of the scale Kinvara Guesthouse is a pretty comfortable place in a lovely small town in Co." See More
"In Kinsale try to book lunch in Fishy Fishy Café Howth Head walk is lovely with views of the bay all the way over to Dun Laoire." See More
"They offer tours and you can have a free pint in their Gravity Bar which has nice views of the city." See More
"I would add Famine Memorial Farmleigh House Glasnevin Cemetery (with a trip afterwards for a pint of Guinness in John Kavanagh (Gravediggers' pub) Take a wander around parts of old Dublin like Stoneybatter and, if you have time take a trip on the DART from Tara Street Train Station to Dalkey (Southbound) or Howth (Northbound) to get coastal views and take a walk by the sea." See More
"My favourite bars in Dublin centre are Mulligan's Grogan's The Palace Bar and The Front Lounge." See More
"And most of all, drinking a pint of beer at The Original Durty Nelly's sorrounded by folk music, history and locals is one in a million experience!" See More
