Once my colleagues planned to visit Dublin, as it didn’t require large amounts, yet was a very beautiful and unexplored place. Due to some reasons, I missed it! But I always had a fantasy of visiting Dublin at least for 2 days. I was eagerly waiting for that golden opportunity and finally, I got 2 days off from my office. I thought, no matter even for 2 days, I would visit Dublin and experience the charms that this city of Ireland offers. Then I started with my journey towards Dublin, Ireland.
When I reached Dublin, I had limited time and also tight pocket but I still wanted to explore it within just 2 days. Big questions before me were how many and that too which places I would be able to visit? That also with my tight budget! I was fortunate enough to meet a guy, who actually was interested in helping me. He was pretty keen in helping me sort out the budget places that would also go well with my pocket. Finally, I was determined to dig out some of the best destinations of Dublin in style.
The first thing I did after reaching Dublin was fueled up myself on some of the best Irish food, that too very much cheap. Just next to it was an atrium-styles mall, the Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, where I did tremendous window shopping. The rates I found there were in my budget and so I also shopped something or the other for my family members. Right to it, as the guy had guided me, was the tram station with some of the brewing empires that were created by Arthur Guinness. The entry fee to this was merely free, so I was interested in actually seeing what it has to offer through its 7 floor rotating Bar. As soon as I reached the 7th floor, I was surprised to admire the 360° view of the city.
As the sun began to set, I thought of hitting the hot spots till I drop. But before getting down on the floor, I got warmed up with the gourmand quality bar food. Then I took a walk towards the Button Factory where I cherished live performances of top talents with high-energy atmosphere ranging from jazz to street rap. Next day, I was able to discover many of the interesting places in Dublin with some fascinating landmarks, recount local legends and also ghost stories.
Finally, as the dusk fell and my 48 hours in Dublin almost drew to a close, I settle at the best Wine Bar and picked a wine for me from about 400 wines that accompanied my intimated dinner in Dublin. My budget trip to Dublin became even more memorizing when I chilled in the heated smoking room to live up my last few hours in Dublin!
