Where to stay in Dublin

About Dublin

Dublin is a relatively small capital, yet most visitors don’t even notice as they’re too busy taking in all the culture, history, entertainment and “craic” the city has to offer. Craic is Irish for “good times”, which you’re certain to have plenty of when taking in Dublin’s traditional Irish culture, Georgian architecture and seaside charm. From the lively Irish pubs to an impressive collection of museums and friendly locals, this city has personality pouring out of every nook and cranny.

Things to do

Considered a must-see attraction, the Guinness Storehouse teaches you the history of one of Ireland’s biggest exports and how to pour the perfect pint of “Black Gold” before letting you enjoy your accomplishment with stunning city views at the on-site Gravity Bar. Drinking in the Temple Bar area is a rite of passage, where you’ll find the perfect combination of pubs, live music and jovial locals.

Shop until you drop on Grafton Street before reaching St Stephen's Green, an expansive park with an array of colourful flowerbeds and tree-lined walks. For those in search of cultural landmarks, a visit to the National Gallery of Ireland and National Museum of Ireland gives great insight into ancient treasures of medieval Ireland.

Dublin appeals to history enthusiasts and is home to Ireland’s oldest university, Trinity College. This notable attraction is where you can see the ancient manuscript, the Book of Kells, from circa 800 AD. Visit the 13th-century Dublin Castle to see a reflection of the city’s past, serving once as a dungeon for state prisoners and also the seat of Parliament.

The historic Christ Church Cathedral and nearby St Patrick's Cathedral are both sights to behold, while a walk up Dalkey and Killiney hills offers a scenic breather from the city with its panoramic bird's-eye views. For an excursion outside of Dublin, pack your camera and explore the famous Blarney Castle and Cliffs of Moher on a day trip, both of which are around three hours’ drive from Dublin.

Getting Around

Dublin’s compact size and convenient spacing of attractions make getting around the city on foot an easy task. It’s a great opportunity to burn off those pints of Guinness and to soak up Dublin’s unique Irish charm. There are also reliable buses and trams offering plenty of routes across the city. The coastal train line, called DART, is the perfect transportation for visiting nearby seaside towns.
