I will be visiting the Emerald Isle next week and would like some recommendations. I will be staying at the Finnstown Country House Hotel in Lucan. I am interested in both dining and pub recommendations and if the two go together, all the better. As far as dining is concerned I am open to any cuisine. Pubs I tend to enjoy the more neighborhood/local types versus the upscale versions. The closer to the hotel the better, but I will have transportation available to get to nearby surrounding areas.
Thanks ahead of time for your help.
