Hello all, Two of my buddies and myself will be visiting Europe in March. London 14-16th, Dublin 16-18th, Amsterdam 18-21st, Prague 21st-24th, and Paris 24th-28th.

I'd love to find a few locals throughout our trip to share a drink with and get a local feel of the cities we're traveling to. I'd be happy to buy you a drink at a local watering hole. Just looking to experience every city at it's best with the little time we're spending in each place. We're in our mid to late 20's, the 3 of us are male and just looking for a memorable trip. I have all of our hostels and apartments book and I'm not look for a place to stay or anything like that. Drop me a line if you think there are any must sees I need to see that I may have over looked. Or if you want to grab a drink while I'm in you city drop me a line for that too.

Wondering where we should spend St.Paddies day drinking? Planning on going to the Guinness Storehouse...... what else should I be checking out???? I want to stay within the city because we don't have a lot of time in Dublin.


I should add I'd be happy to return the favor if you're every Florida, United States or close to it.

Hi there,
I would have loved to have met up with you all, but unfortunately (and fortunately for me too!) I am moving back to Scotland in 2 weeks, so I won't be in Dublin when you arrive. Instead, here are a few of my personal favourite city centre pubs:

O'Donoghues (known famously for its great live music)
The Church (trendy restored church, north side of the river)
Gogarty's (Temple Bar, plus live music upstairs)
The Brazen Head (Ireland's oldest pub dating back to 1198 - they do a mean Irish stew as well yes.gif It's a 10 minute walk west of the centre, but worth it - closish to the Guinness Storehouse though)

Also, the Guinness Storehouse has a special St Patrick's Day event, but you'll probably have to get tickets in advance - if you book online they're doing a 10% discount at the moment smile.gif Here is a link to info on their event: Guinness Storehouse

I hope you have a brilliant time, and I'm sure you will. Enjoy Paddies Day, it is fab, and I'm gutted to be missing it this year - have a Guinness for me smile.gif
