Top 10 things to do in Dublin

Perhaps it's been Dublin's history of hardship that has made it a breeding ground for poets, playwrights, and musicians alike. The city's vibrant culture is unmissable, but here are some its liveliest and most beautiful places to visit!

Guinness Storehouse

The Guinness Brewery's multi-storey exhibit offers a fascinating insight into the black stuff's history and brewing methods. And yes, there's a complimentary pint at the end of it!

Dublin Zoo

The Dublin Zoo hosts creatures great and small from across the globe. Even if you're not with kids, it's worth going just for the daily talks and feedings!

National Gallery of Ireland

The National gallery of Ireland boasts a worthy collection of paintings from Europe and the US, but go for the excellent ensemble of Irish paintings. Entrance is free!

Phoenix Park

Phoenix Park is one of the largest walled city park in Europe, it's big enough to envelop many of the city's attractions, such as Dublin Zoo, the Wellington Monument, and the Magazine Fort.

Kilmainham Gaol

Kilmainham was where the leaders of the Easter Rising were executed. If you're interested in the country's fight for independence then the "Irish Bastille" is a must-do!

Christ Church Cathedral

The Christ Church Cathedral is worth a visit any day of the week, but try to catch its enchanting choral evensongs on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Dublin Castle

This complex of structures from various eras forms a very odd castle indeed. The gardens behind it were once home to the Dubh Linn (dark pool) that the city was named after!

Croke Park

Hurling, Gaelic football, and rugby: Ireland revels in sports that few other countries understand. Still, land Croke Park tickets to any of the major games and you'll be smitten for life!

Aviva Stadium

It's not all about Croke Park if you're looking to soak up some of Ireland's sporting pride. The sleek Aviva Stadium hosts most of Ireland's international rugby and soccer matches.

National Museum of Ireland

From bog men to Bronze Age gold to weaponry dating up till independence, the National Museum is a fundamental look at Ireland from all angles.

Planning your Dublin visit

Best time to visit?

Ireland isn't exactly known for its splendid weather, but the best of it generally makes its token appearance at the end of summer (September-ish). If you're looking for an excuse to don a silly hat and swig Guinness, the St. Patrick's Day parade is on March 17th.

How to get around?

The Irish are world-renowned for their terrific sense of humor, and nowhere is this more evident than in Dublin's public transport network! There are 2 unconnected tram lines and trains mainly serve the outer rim of the city. The bus network is extensive but a tough nut to crack for visitors (see dublinbus.ie). The good news, however, is that most of the sights are just a short walk from each other in the heart of the city!

How many days?

You could see the sights of Dublin in a day or two, but remember this is a city of exemplary museums, exciting music and sports events, and enticing modern restaurants. Book a week to delve into its best kept secrets!

What people are saying about Dublin

The 72 hour freedom pass made for a more relaxed short break.

We got our moneys worth from our tickets,but could have used them to greater effect by using service buses more for much quicker,more direct journeys.All things considered,the tickets make getting about Dublin easier and much more enjoyable when the driver had the craic.Next time we will get much more than our moneys worth and if we get lost again we will hop on a service bus so as not to lose valuable drinking and eating time.

A really interesting couple of hours , the Gravity Bar was great too !

Really well organised tour , the staff were most helpful and friendly , great way to spend an afternoon in Dublin

Awesome tour! Good guides and beautifull scenery

Great tour with tourguides Larry and Jennifer! Lots of humor during the bus ride and good information. They showed us the most beautifull places in West Ireland! All the places during the day were gorgeous. The Cliffs of Moher are really beautifull. The left route is the normal route and the right route is a more difficult route. We also took the right route and the view was amazing. I highly recommend this tour! :)

Excellent guide, a wonderful tour for anyone.

I really enjoyed the tour. If you want to see much of Ireland and don't have the time, try this tour, because in one day, you see a lot of the lovely irish landscape and get tons of information as well.

Value for money, informative and local to Dublin town centre

We arrived and within two minutes were welcomed onto the tour. The history of Jameson's was explained by the tour guide who made sure everyone could see and hear. As we progressed through the building there was plenty of time foe questions. At the end several whiskey's were compared by everyone and then we were given a good size Jameson whiskey (or soft drink) to send us on our way. We all enjoyed the visit.
