Greetings brothers. I'm going to be in Dublin Ireland for two weeks on business. Other than the Peterson factory, I'm wondering if there are any particular pipe-related things I should check out while in town.

Heck - any suggestions on anything interesting in Dublin are actually appreciated!

TIA,
Doody

If you like quiet out of the way places you might like to check out Iveagh Gardens

Some images of the Gardens

Only gets busy as you see in some of the images during Festivals, it is one of Dublin's lesser known places of beauty, very spiritual and heart warming if you enjoy such adventures. Smile

Highly recommend the Guinness Store House - very interesting.

Just take a walk around in the early evening and soak up the atmosphere. (+1 on Kirk's recommendation)

Oh! don't forget to stock up on Condor Plug - bit expensive at nearly 9 for 25 grms, but worth every cent - this is the REAL taste of 'Old Ireland'.

Most of all, have a cracking time.

Not sure if the James Joyce house will be open for tours, but if it is - definitely worth a visit.

Thx gents!

The Guinness tour is on my list - we'll see if I can fit it in. This is a business trip so I won't have that much free time.

Iveagh Gardens are a 5 minute walk from the office - will DEFINITELY check that out - thx!

Condor Plug is officially on my pickup list :-) . Damn expensive, but "when in Rome...".

I'm a huge James Joyce fan, so that's on my list. My understanding is that there are no tours any longer, but you can see the house and get a pic of yourself with the statue :-) . Debating whether to bring Ulysses or Dubliners with me!

Doody!

Once again, thanks for everybody's advice. Shuffling out of MA today for two weeks of work. Gonna miss my dog an awful lot. Oh yeah, and my kids. Yeah - and the wife too. ;-).

Bringing two Radices, a Mastro de Paja, and a compact Reddog with me - along with ample supplies of HH Vintage Syrian and HH Highland Blend. Condor Plug to be secured upon arrival (I have to walk right by James Fox to get to the office!).

See y'all on Ireland time next.

This place is definitely worth a look and has lots of character. Not a great selection of pipe tobaccos but an excellent range of cigars and a really nice place to get a Cuban coffee and relax for a few minutes.

Don't expect to be able to purchase much pipe tobacco within the Duty Free shop at Dublin Airport. I was there recently an the range of pipe tobaccos on offer was very poor.

I hope you have a great trip.

Fraternally

Jers

If you can fit it in, a trip to Jameson is well worth it. And if you're a whiskey drinker, pick up some Mitchell & Son Yellow Spot and/or Green Spot for some great whiskey you can't get in the states.
