Explore a market fit for a queen: This is the oldest market of its kind in Europe, and the shelves groan with Irish artisan produce and farmhouse cheeses from the mild to the ultra-mature. Delicious stuff.

Enjoy a traditional Irish music session: The traditional Irish music session is the quintessential “Irish experience” and has rightly earned its place on the “must dos” when visiting Ireland.
