    Dublin, how broke will I be afterwards?

    So, in 20 days or so, I have a conference in Dublin (ISI, if anyone else is going). Now, I can probably sneak in half a day of running around Dublin, and I will of course visit Petersons shop on Grafton Street. Now, what should I get, and how broke will I be at the end of it all?

    I absolutely neeeeed a new pipe, and I absolutely love my Savinelli Long John, anything Peterson can contribute to this Italian dream?

    Some new baccies... I would love to try some of the rarer ones.

    And while I am in Ireland, some good Whiskey suggestions? Again, I would love something that is good, but a little rare (If I can get it here, I will probably buy it here).

    Any suggestions?

    Don't hold back. In my travels I've visited many pipe shops and, for one reason or another, walked away without picking up some unique finds. To this day I've regretted not pulling the trigger.

    Bushmill's has the oldest license to distill in Ireland, 1608. I had a friend who returned with a bottle only available at the distillery and inscribed to him personally. Unfotunately they are closer to Belfast than Dublin. Still, the Irish take their whiskey seriously, should be able to find a number worth trying = )

    Perhaps, if you have the time, you could visit the Peterson factory.

    "Visitors to our factory are most welcome but - visits are by appointment only:-
    Monday - Thursday: from 11o'clock to 1 o'clock mornings and from 2 o'clock to 4 o'clock in the afternoon. No Visits are permitted on Friday.

    You must 'phone our factory manager, Mr. Tony Whelan, when you arrive in Dublin to arrange a day and time to visit (01-2851011)."


    Here's a video Dub did when he visited the factory.

    Ooooh, now I am sorry I did not extend my stay from two days... I will arrive Tuesday, conference on Wednesday, and leave Thursday afternoon. Also sad, because I just found out the Peterson store is only open on Thursday...which, if I am on the doorstep at opening, leaves me about an hour to do all things. So yeah, maybe not the best idea to just rush in there and grab a pipe, just for the sake of having it from the Peterson store.

    Oh, one thing, I live in Belgium... not North America, so Dublin is around the corner for me. ;-)

    Just an idea...personalized bottles of whisky make great gifts; I got one as a gift from the Jameson distillery years ago and loved it.

    My wife and I went for our 5yr in March. I missed the oppurtunity to visit the factory but did stop at the store on Grafton St, or was it O'Connel? Trinity library is unreal,St Patricks Cathedral is awesome and the musuem of archaeology has a very interesting bog body display. Money wise, just kiss it goodbye.

    Watched the At Paddy's day parade in a tree in St. Patricks Cathedral park, I figured if people were climbing on Daniel O'Connell, the tree would be kosher.

    You will be too broke to return and resume a normal life here. You will be forced to take up residence in Ireland, spending all your time in pubs drinking Guinness and singing Irish songs. (I dealt out a tin of Irish Flake and read your fate, just for kicks.) The worst part of what the flakes had to say -- perhaps I shouldn't tell you this -- you will become addicted to Irish stepdancing.

    How broke? Very. Dublin is an expensive city. Probably not quite so bad coming from the Eurozone but going over from the UK it is pricey.

    Whiskey recommendation: Tyrconnell

    It is to Irish whiskey what Macallen is to Scotch whiskey.

    Can be found in the U.S. as well, but it's not easy to find.

    Everyone needs a bottle of whiskey from the year of their birth and a good stout Irish Blackthorn walking stick.
