I'm trying to assemble a tentative itinerary for my stop in Dublin and would appreciate any feedback. This is not my first trip to Dublin, but my other visit was 20 years ago. I'm a professional historian and so 1) gravitate toward museums; 2) can do 2+ museums per day if necessary; 3) usually have to be reminded to slow down and take things in!
Day One (I'll have arrived late the previous night):
Quick visit to Christ Cathedral (morning)
Chester Beatty Library (morning)
Kilmainham Gaol (afternoon)
Dublin Literary Pub Crawl (evening)
National Museum: Archaeology
Wander around St. Stephen's Green and Merion Square
Early morning walk to the Garden of Remembrance (maybe)
National Museum of Decorative Arts & History
Catch mid-afternoon train to Cork (and then bus to Kinsale).
