What to see in Dublin
Historic buildings, quaint pubs, and landmarks known around the world—it is no wonder that Dublin is one of the most popular city break destinations in Europe. The first stop on a visit here is undoubtedly the Guinness Storehouse at St. James’s Gate. See how Ireland’s most famous beer is made and discover the secret of how it conquered the globe. You can even enjoy a free pint with a panoramic view of the city from its rooftop bar.
Dating back to 1204, Dublin Castle is a major landmark of the city. Tour through the museums, libraries, and pleasant surrounding gardens and learn about its history. Standing on O’Connell Street is the city’s General Post Office. It was one of the key buildings during the Easter Rising of 1916 and served as the headquarters of the men and women who led the rebellion.
For the bookworms among you, the magnificent Trinity College Library has the largest collection of literature across the country. Whisky lovers, of course, will not be able to resist a tour of the Jameson Distillery.
Sample hearty Irish grub in Dublin
Bring your appetite as Dublin has a huge array of cafes, pubs, and restaurants that can answer the call when your stomach rumbles. The city is awash with eateries specializing in cuisine from all over the world, but there is no better way to sample Dublin than to eat like the locals. From stews to soups, Irish cuisine is the hearty comfort food to keep you warm on those chilly winter afternoons.
Walk through the cobbled streets of Temple Bar and pop in to Gallagher’s Boxty House to sample their legendary Boxty pancake. This traditional potato cake can sit alongside an Irish breakfast or be eaten on its own. Don’t forget to try their delicious beef and stout stew to fuel your sightseeing through the city.
If you’re looking for a modern take on Irish cooking, head to the Winding Star overlooking the River Liffey. Here you will find mouthwatering home-smoked salmon served on Guinness bread, just one of the delicacies on this eclectic menu.
Experience the nightlife of Dublin
Dublin is known across the world for its vibrant nightlife. The city has a pub, bar, or music venue at every turn, ensuring that no matter your taste, you can join in the craic (an Irish term for fun or entertainment) in the Irish capital. Most visitors to Dublin are instantly attracted to the famous Temple Bar area but this is just a tiny slice of the city’s excellent bar scene.
South of the river, Camden Street is vying for Temple Bar’s crown. From the edgy street art to the modern take on the traditional pubs, this is cool Dublin. Enjoy a perfectly poured Guinness in Long Hall, choose from the extensive cocktail menu in Fade Street Social, enjoy the vibes in The Bernard Shaw, and watch live music at Whelan’s.
Keep the night going by heading over to Harcourt Street and take your pick from the multitude of clubs where you can dance until dawn.
Local attractions in Dublin
Finding a nice place to stay in Dublin is not as easy as you might think. While there are many hotels and hostels in this capital city, it's easy to get caught up in the international atmosphere and thus leave Dublin without really getting a taste of Irish culture. A good way to experience Irish life is to stay in a typical apartment, inhabited by real Dubliners.

Dublin, the cityDublin is a lively and vibrant city at the center of Irish life. It is the European city with the highest rate of tourist growth. Dublin also offers a multitude of activities. Dublin's nightlife is legendary and a visit to Temple Bar, Dublin's main pub and bar area, is highly recommended. We highly recommend visiting the popular tourist attractions that will allow you to gain an appreciation for the Irish way of life. A guided tour of the Guinness Brewery is the main tourist attraction we recommend in Dublin. Located just west of the center, the Guinness building showcases the history of the "black stuff" and highlights the various marketing campaigns of the Guinness brand over the years. At the end of the tour, you are rewarded with a pint of Guinness to enjoy in the Gravity Bar, a panoramic bar with stunning views of Dublin and the Wicklow Mountains. We also recommend visiting Chester Beatty Library, which has a fabulous collection of books, manuscripts and drawings from Beatty's personal collection. The city is dotted with great parks - Phonenix Park is huge and home to the Dublin Zoo. St Stephens Green is a great place to relax after an afternoon of shopping on nearby Grafton Avenue.
Irish CuisineHere are some Irish dishes we recommend during your stay:The Breakfast Roll It doesn't get more Irish than the Breakfast Roll. This little snack includes all the classic elements of a fried breakfast but is served in a French baguette. This snack is perfect to munch on during a day of sightseeing!
Seafood Chowder - Irish waters are rich in fish and the Irish really know how to cook them. Be sure to try this hearty soup often served with some soda bread, an Irish bread leavened with baking soda. It's simply delicious!
Irish Stew - served anywhere and best enjoyed in a bar with a pint of Guinness.
Irish brands - a special mention for the various Irish brands. Barry's Tea and Lyon's tea rival the special breakfast tea brands. Ballymaloe's "relish" is a rich tomato and spice sauce served with cheese. It is also widely used in cooked dishes. Be sure to save room in your suitcase to bring back some of these Irish products!
Dublin NightlifeDublin is famous for its wide selection of bars. This city offers a wide range of options when it comes to enjoying a pint of Guinness or an "Irish coffee". South of the city center, we recommend visiting Bernard Shaw, located on Richmond Street. This Irish bar successfully recreates the raucous atmosphere of Western Ireland and the hedonistic nightlife of Galway. You'll find a double-decker bus in the "Beer Garden" - hop aboard and enjoy some tasty Italian pizza! We also recommend visiting The Porterhouse, located in the heart of the Temple Bar area. This bar serves its own homemade beer. It is really tasty! Also try the Oyster Stout - the house version of Guinness but brewed with oysters!
Off the beaten pathIf you like to explore, Dublin has many bars, stores and sights to discover in less touristy corners. The Dublin Flea Market takes place on the last Sunday of every month. It is located southwest of the city center on Newmarket Street. The market has many food and bric-a-brac stalls. The coffee there is always very good too. The Glasnevin Botanical Garden is free to enter and contains over 20,000 species of plants including many rare specimens. Take the 13a, 19 or 134 bus from downtown Dublin.
Getting aroundDublin Airport is about 30 minutes from the city center. Bus transfers are very regular. We recommend not taking a cab - the trip from the airport to the city center is the 12th most expensive cab ride in the world! Ferries also run between Dublin and Wales. A Sail & Rail ticket costs €40 and will take you by train from Dublin to any part of the UK. As for transportation in Dublin's inner city, two streetcar lines serve the areas north and south of the River Liffey. Numerous bus routes serve all major tourist attractions. Dublin's city center is fairly compact, so you can get around on foot. Dublin is very well connected with other Irish cities such as Sligo, Galway and Cork.
