Town Hall Cafe
The large but fairly mundane 1843 Cathedral is at the southern end of O'Connell St; it's spire is a useful landmark from afar.
Poet's Corner Bar
The old hotel pub often has massive trad sessions on Fridays.
Enormous store that has everything from prepared foods to groceries.

Lonely Planet review
Adjacent to, and affiliated with, the Old Ground Hotel, this excellent bistro is in the stylishly resurrected old town hall. High ceilings allow large artwork, while the spare settings don't compete with the food on the ever-changing modern Irish menu. Look for local ingredients, especially seafood, taking front and centre stage.
