Would you spend time outside the city, on the beaches or in the mountains?
Absolutely, it's very handy. You can easily jump on the DART and visit these diverse places. We would also go to some of the smaller towns along the bay, like Howth, Dalkey and Dun Laoghaire. If they were staying for longer we would check out the coastal routes leading up to Belfast, or take a trip to Galway.
Dublin is rapidly becoming known as Europe's technology centre – do you have any tips for tech visitors and workers looking to spend their spare time?
I think if you're involved in technology, it's worth finding friends who are involved in different companies and do a tour of the offices, especially the young start-ups in the area where you can get a taste of what the tech scene is like here. The Dublin Web Summit is brilliant, I'm very impressed by how much it's been growing in the last couple of years, there have been impressive speakers and I think it's certainly one of the top three tech events in Europe. Anybody in the tech scene across the world would be recommended to come to it.
