Dublin on a Shoestring

Ben’s Second Book, Dublin on a Shoestring – Buy Here Now!

Dublin is a fantastic place. The birthplace and hometown of cultural greats, it is a young capital alive with nightlife, great restaurants, comfy accommodation – and now, terrific bargains.


As you wander the city, you’ll need a guide to take you past the high street sale signs to where true value, and the real Dublin, is found.


Shoestring Dublin is the Dublin of the quiet streets, the second-storey cafés, the little places tucked away in unlabelled cul-de-sacs and only advertised through word of mouth.


Opinionated, practical, entertaining – Dublin on a Shoestring is the original insiders’ guide.


Whether you’re just visiting or planning to stay, this is where to find:


-          Dub’s best pubs – including where to get the cheapest pint in Dublin!

-          The best and best value restaurants – eat out without remortgaging your home

-          Where to shop (without a gold card)

-          Insider recommended entertainments from cinema to live jazz

-          Somewhere to stay and somewhere to live – personally inspected accommodation

-          Must sees – where Dubliners take their visitors

-          Dublin for free – enjoy the city without spending a cent


The original Dublin on a Shoestring was published in 1998, just as Ireland was coming to terms with its newfound prosperity. The second edition was released in the headiest days of the boom, in 2002. Now, this completely revised third edition, by Katherine Farmar and Ben Murnane, offers the ultimate guide to a city that’s changing once again.


More than just a guidebook, Dublin on a Shoestring is a snapshot of a vibrant capital in turbulent times.
