Butler’s Hot Chocolate
If it’s more of a day-time date, there is a Butler’s right at the top of Grafton Street that obviously does great hot chocolate, which you can take with you when you take a stroll through Stephen’s Green and chat.
Dun Laoghaire Pier Walk
Nothing can be more romantic than to take a seaside stroll, watching all the lights from the city. Dun Laoghaire is the perfect spot. It’s a good walk, but not too long and the pier wall blocks a lot of wind so you won’t freeze to death.
Mini Golf Dundrum
A frustratingly great game and a good way to find out whether or not your date is a competitive one or not. Cheap and cheerful and on the Green Luas Line, it’s an easy pick if you want to see who is better at sport.

A Stroll in Phoenix Park
Another great date idea in Dublin is to go for a stroll in the Phoenix Park. There’s lots to see in the park and it gives you a great opportunity to chat and get to know each other. You could even bring a small picnic.
While you’re there you could also visit The Zoo.
