Dublin February 23rd - 25th Reservations

We are a family of four adults. This is our first trip to Ireland. While in Dublin February 23rd-25th, there is rugby going on which we would guess that will mean crowds.

We are staying at the Holiday Inn Express on O'Connell.

Questions:

- Should we book restaurants in advance?

- We have already bought tickets to see Killmainham Goal. Will we need to pre-purchase the Guinness Tour, Jameson Tour or Book of Kells? It doesn't look look that there is other things that sell out.

Thanks

Might be best you book Guinness.

No need to book pub grub.

Just wondering if you purchased all the tickets from the same source. If so which one? Thanks

Thanks. We are planning a similar itinerary for Sept. We also plan to visit the Chester Beatty Library, manuscripts similar to Book of Kells but free and less crowded. Wondering about the storytelling dinner at Brazen Head. If you have any tips or suggestions after your trip please post. Thanks again
