It's a self service restaurant located on the top floor of the M&S supermarket. It has a an amazing view on the rooftops of Dublin and based on the weather, sitting both inside or on the terrace is a charm. Food wise, after the rewam the new menu is not a great as before. Similar as with airline food, pictures of dishes on promo materials is way off from what you're really getting.

One of few local supermarkets. It offers a good selection of what you would expect from a grocery store. Staff was very friendly.

This is a really amazing cat cafe. It's a upper-medium price range and might not have a wide range of dishes, however, the amazing cat atmosphere totally makes up for it. Highly recommend.

This location includes a traditional Estonian windmill and a museum. It's certainly worth a visit, however, note that museum is only opened during the summer season.

This hotel offers and amazing luxury experience. The room was really comfortable with large bed, entertainment and sound system. The service was great both on the hotel and also offering a free transfer to Liiva. It might seem remote, however, the surrounding is amazing - you can relax in an area by the sea or rent bikes and explore the island. Highly recommend
