Just came back from a trip to Dublin, which seems to be a very popular destination mainly about Americans, but surprisingly also among Spaniards and Italians; there was no corner of the city or traffic light where we didn't hear Spanish spoken; many families, too. It's probably due to the cost of flying, which was also the reason our family chose it.
Cheap lodging for families is also available: we got this one from Expedia
, and found most of what the reviews tell more or less true. However, if you're tired after a long day of walking, it's basically OK, and it's good value for money (~ 100 ¤ per night for the whole family!).
Though I got an impression of Dublin very similar of what I got from Amsterdam, that is, that the main streets look like a shopaholic Disneyland made only for tourists, Dublin is geneally an hospitable city, with lots of places to stop for a friendly coffee or beer, generally inexpensive, and with lots of things to see and do. Four days was OK for most of what we intended to see; only we were kind of disappointed in Anglican churches that couldn't be visited during services... Catholic ones didn't have any problem with that; for that reason, and in two occassions, we missed the Christchurch cathedral.
