We haven't yet picked the place we're going to stay, however, we have decided that it will be in Temple Bar. Temple Bar is the tourist, drunkie, area of town...perfect for us.
We arrive on Thursday morning - the Sprinsteen concert is Sunday night - this gives us 3 full days to try and pack in as much sight seeing & pubbing as humanly possible.
I think we'll stick to the Lonely Planet suggestions of what can be done in this amount of time, which is, Dublin Castle, Pub, Trinity College, Pub, Temple Bar (of course), Pub, Catch a Museum, Pub, Eat Fresh Seafood, Pub, Guinness Factory Tour, Pub and so on, and so on. Here's a list of things we'll more than likely do - http://infoireland.wordpress.com/2008/08/28/top-10-things-to-do-in-dublin-before-you-die/
There seems to be an assortment of places to choose from for lodging. I'm tempted to try one of the hostels (most of the complaints are about noise...shouldn't be a problem for us...apparently I snore quite loudly after a pint of the 'black stuff'.
Even though the trip is still roughly 4 months away, I'm starting to get excited. It should be a good time.
