Gift for friend honeymooning in Ireland?

My friend since we were kids is getting married (finally) and is going on his honeymoon with his new wife next year in Ireland. Most people are giving money donations for the trip. Anyone have any cool suggestions for something to get for them in Ireland that they can pick up or experience? Guy and his new wife are beer drinkers which works well for Ireland. Any Ireland people or those who have visited on here with suggestions? A truly Irish gift, experience, dinner, etc? Thanks.

Guinness Brewery Tour?


You neglect to say where in Ireland - it's a decent sized country and from one side to the other is not a quick jaunt.

They have not decided on the locations in Ireland yet. They are planning for the next year. Guinness is a good first idea. Thanks.

Pay for an excursion or a meal or something if you don't want to give cash. That's what I usually do (although I prefer to give cash since that's what everyone seems to want).

Waterford crystal factory tour, and gift certificate. they can chose vs you deciding. They can spend a few hundred on a totally impractical but beautiful vase...

OEM is not what BMW sells

Not knowing where in Ireland they're headed makes it tough. Lots of good ideas here: https://www.irishpost.com/travel/tra...9-guide-166232

Unless your friend is experienced in driving on the wrong side of the road, hire him a driver one day to take him on a scenic tour of a section of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Is your friend a GOT fan? This could be fun: https://wildrovertours.com/activity/...r-from-dublin/

Sending them to a performance of Riverdance in Dublin would be pretty cool. As would a tour of your friend's favorite Irish Distillery, and a nice souvenir bottle. https://www.irelandbeforeyoudie.com/...tours-ireland/
