I'm pretty excited about visiting Dublin in November. I will be staying in the Temple Bar Area for few days and then will spend a day in Cork and a day in Galway. I will be traveling alone so I'm looking for places that are friendly to the solo traveler.
I lived in London for a year and I'm originally from San Francisco if that means anything (I do love my food and adult beverages). I'm looking for:
Any recommendations on great/worthwhile open air markets or farmer's markets.
Pubs that are not overrun with tourists (meaning I'll actually meet people who are Irish there) bonus points if the pub has live music and great pies.
Reasonably priced and couple nice restaurants that have good bar dining.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
