Hi, all! A friend and I are planning a trip to Dublin in early May 2005. In Norway where we live, Ascension Day (May 5) is a holiday and shops and such are closed. Is that the case in Dublin as well? What about pubs? I suppose what I’m really asking is if we can expect to have fun in Dublin on this day or if we’re better off planning other dates. 🙂 Thanks for any answers!
Ascension day is not celebrated in Ireland (except in church). Shops and everything else have business as usual. Hope you enjoy your visit. If I can help with any other info, please e-mail!
