          assume you are arriving into Dublin Port? taxi best bet as it is not far.. there is a bus option but you would have to check routes to top (North End) of O Connell st when you reach port. .

We want some space, but of course would be sightseeing most of the day. Also should we pass a pub that we like, (obviously we will 😉) will our 15 year old be allowed in? Thanks much
