What to do on a day-long layover in Dublin?

We have one day in Dublin on Friday (flight gets in at 8:30 am, have to be back at the airport by 5pm). Can we reasonably find interesting things to do in that time? Parks to walk through, a good place for a pub lunch (and World Cup watching?) or just interesting things to see in the vicinity such that we could get back to the airport in time would be great.

Not a souvenir, more a neat token...

I'm going to Dublin, Ireland for several weeks for work. Do you have any suggestions for something to acquire while I'm there that isn't a tourist-type thing and that is usually only doable if you're in a place for more than a few days? [more inside]

Why do so many people turn around at the end of the BART line?

When I get off BART at the Dublin/Pleasanton station, I often see quite a few people (as many as ten) getting off my train, walking across the platform, and boarding the train that goes the other direction. Dublin/Pleasanton is the end of the line, and there is only one line that goes there. What are these people doing? [more inside]

Image from Book of Kells exhibit at Trinity College, Dublin?

I was recently in Dublin and was amazed by the Book of Kells exhibit (if you're ever there I highly recommend it). Anyway, there was an image in the exhibit, not from the Book of Kells, that I loved and want a tattoo of! All I have is this bad photo. BAD PHOTO! I've done hours of internet search, reverse image look up and all that. Has anyone seen it, know what its from or have a good image of it? Its mostly the upper part with the guys arms and the serpents. Thanks!

Recommendations for Irish SIM card for American

I will be traveling to Dublin, Ireland frequently in the next 6 mos - year and I need to find an appropriate SIM vendor. I have done a ton of research but I am still hamstrung in terms of concrete advice. Here is what I know: I have unlocked my old iPhone 4 for this purpose. My husband and I have AT&T for our stateside smartphone service. My mother has Verizon (my preschooler will be with her). I will use the phone to call my husband and daughter nightly (probably two separate calls) and I will want some data coverage for navigation, texting, etc. I would prefer not to initiate any kind of contract until after the first trip. Any recommendations? TIA.

I'll be visiting a friend in Dublin in a few days, and we'd like to go see Giant's Causeway. Is there a good and easy way to do this that could get us there and back in a day? Or if you've done it spending the night somewhere, is there an in-between place you'd suggest? [more inside]

Do I have laptop repair trust issues?

I am not a computer repair person, and apparently, don't know if I trust those who are. I recently had a problem with the frame around the screen of my laptop (Dell Inspiron, about 5 years old). I took it to a shop to be repaired, and while there I mentioned that the computer was running a bit slowly, and asked if they could also install more RAM (if that might make it run faster). The technician said yes, and for the same price of installing the RAM, he would give it their tune up service. [more inside]

Keep it weird, my Gaelic friends

I need some Dublin pointers. I'll be there for a short stay, and since I'm going over on St. Patricks day (as well as my birthday), there will be no historical touring for me.

How can I help my coworkers create XML documents to store metadata?

Generating XML documents help? I work with the county health department, and have been asked to come up with a way to create, store and manipulate metadata for various datasets we store internally on a network drive. Basically I think the simplest thing to do is to create an xml file stored in the same directory with any dataset. Preferably I can do this with infopath 2003 or free software, and using the Dublin Core standard for metadata. I've seen the 5 year old answers on Dublin Core Metadata from this Ask, but I need to let my coworkers create the data first, and that mostly covers storage/database solutions. Looking through various DC list archives hasn't been helpful. [more inside]

International freight parcel missing in Dublin

Posted my daughter her excess luggage by Parcelforce (UK to Ireland) when she went back to uni (UCD) last week. Now there's no trace of the suitcase although it is logged as having been received in Dublin. It's now one week behind schedule, and An Phost's customer service is completely useless (didn't ring back as promised, hung up/disconnected, can't get through with 15 minutes waiting, etc.). Registered a complaint with Parcelforce who are working on it, without a result to date. Is this par for the course? Helllllllllllp!
