I will be taking the GAS tour in August. I'm flying via Aer Lingus. However, due to [ flight time] scheduling conflicts, I will spending an overnight in Dublin. I have never spent time in Ireland so I have a few questions. I don't want to pick up Rick's book about Ireland for just one night, so would someone help me (maybe you have the book lying around your house) please? Y :).
First, can someone suggest some centrally located hotels that may be listed in his Dublin book, so I can start checking availability. I will be in Dublin on a Friday night in late August (arriving around 6:00 into the airport). My Saturday flight leaves at noontime.
In addition to a few hotel suggestions, is there any sites/attractions listed as being open later on a Friday night? Anything I have time to see before getting to the airport on Saturday? I know I can go visit the Temple Bar area for a few drinks, but I'm not a big drinker and I'll be a single, female, alone. Is it safe for me to do this?
Thanks for the help in advance. :).
