My wife and I will be in Dublin for a week come mid-June. We'll be staying at the Shelbourne Dublin in city center. She'll be working but I have a pass so thoughts on lunch spots, bars, pubs would be appreciated. Thoughts on dinner locations for the two of us are also requested. One very special spot to celebrate our anniversary would be nice.
We are adventurous eaters, omnivores if you will. We like wine, booze, good food and a warm, welcoming environment. Tourist-oriented suggestions are ok (hell, we are tourists) but we are capable of navigating the local scene.
A final thought: if there is a horse track open during our stay, day or night, I will be there. Dining/drinking recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
