Under $100 / Europe

Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland and home to some of the best beer drinkers on the planet. Below is how you can experience the city on a $100 budget.

 

Start your day at Queen of Tarts for a heavy breakfast that should carry you through lunchtime. Order your morning beverage and meal from the breakfast menu ($16).

 

Head to Dublin Castle, built on a Vikings settlement to learn about its history while touring the exhibits available ($10).

 

St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the next stop and the tallest and largest church in the country. Take a tour of the grounds ($9). St. Patrick’s Park is close by if you wish to have a sit down and people-watch.

 

Your next stop is The Little Museum of Dublin that chronicles the history of Dublin throughout the 20th century. It provides visitors with a peek into the lives of people during that time.

 

Market Bar is your lunch stop. Order your choice of tapas and a drink before continuing your journey ($16). Enjoy the ambience of the bar and the company of the Irish people.

 

After lunch, explore the grounds of Trinity College, a site present in popular films and books.

 

You cannot visit Dublin and not get a taste of the pub life. Temple Bar is a neighborhood in Dublin spread over cobblestoned streets with a pub named after the neighborhood, a great spot to experience the famous Irish pub scene. Here you’ll have your dinner and a legendary beer to go with it. You can order oysters or your choice of sandwich ($25).

 

Head to the Ha’penny Bridge, a pedestrian bridge made of cast iron that makes for a beautiful sight at night, when it gets dark and the lights hit the water.
