Dublin Samuel Becket bridge at night

The Salon Owners Summit is right around the corner! We hope that you are as excited as we are (and, in case you haven’t heard about it, you can request more info here).

We’ve been chatting to a few of the attendees who tell us that they are going to hit Dublin city a few days ahead of the summit.

We thought it might be nice to put together a fun little guide on what to do while you are in Ireland’s capital city!

If you are looking for dancing we have you covered; if you are packing light so you can do some serious Dublin shopping, we know where you should go!

So, check out some of the best of what Dublin has to offer:

Salon Owner’s Dublin Checklist

12. Are you a Swinger? Well, if you’re in the mood to knock around a few balls, then we know the place with the best holes.. The Clontarf Golf Club, that is! (what did you think we were talking about?):

15. One of the best places to eat in Dublin (besides The Ely Wine Bar & Brasserie where the after party is!) is The Pig’s Ear. Why not book a table there for a nice weekend dinner?
