8. St Stephen’s Green is lovely, but Merrion Square is quieter. 9. And Iveagh Gardens is the nicest park of all.
10. Temple Bar after dark is never a good idea. 11. Because only bleedin’ thicks pay €7.45 for a pint. 
12. Saying “thirty three and a third” is the key to any tourist’s heart. 13. As is being able to direct them to the Book of Kells.
14. Dublin Bus drivers can be brutal at times. 15. But they can also be the soundest people you’ll ever meet.
