    Guinness factory, all the old pubs around the city, watch the live music at them, go shopping. We also went to Galway for a few days and really enjoyed it

    The Ghost Bus Tour! It's brilliant. If it's nice weather (which it eh probably won't be) get the DART along the coast-great views and some nice beaches- Dollymount, Bray, Greystones etc. Trinity College Dublin has a beautiful campus, the really old Book of Kells and a deadly Harry Potter-esque library. There are city tour busses and other busses to castles, gradens and the coast off the south of Dublin/Wicklow. Dublin Zoo is in the Phoenix Park (worth a visit, MASSIVE park). I don't really recommend shopping, Dublin's a giant rip off compared to the UK, main shopping streets are Grafton Street and Henry Street though. Templebar is all fun and games but DO NOT buy drinks there unless you're loaded. There's lots of traditional Irish pubs around, particularly on the Northside-Parnell Street area. Nice late bars are Down Under/The Scene (South King Street) and Messrs Maguire (the quays, beside the Heneiken building). There's lots of cheapo drink promotion clubs around there too. Citi Bar is dirt cheap too. Barcode (NOT in the city centre- Fairview) and Bondi (bachelor's walk) are the really 17/18 year old clubs, Bondi has drink promotions every night too. Copper Face Jacks is an experience to remember- Harcourt Street. Luigi Malones is a gorgeous restaraunt in Templebar- I don't really eat out in town much though..
