One of the longest streets in Dublin. This is where National events are usually held from Saint Patrick’s day to Irish Independence Day. All are celebrated here

While in Dublin, you should make sure you spend some time walking up O'Connell if you have time. It is a large street with restaurants and shops. It's like the heart of the city. A nice area to see.

This restaurant is nothing to do with BeshoffBros. The fish was fine, but, the chips were yuk. The tables around us left their chips and we did the same. They were pale, floppy and left a greasy film and a uncooked taste on the pallet....More
