About Dublin

Including tips for the best time to visit Dublin

Dublin is rich in both culture and things to do, with over 1,000 pubs and countless must-see landmarks like the beautiful Old Library and Book of Kells at Trinity College. The best of the Irish capital can be easily explored on foot since the center is as compact as it is charming. A visit to the Guinness Storehouse offers a fascinating glimpse into one of the city's most famous exports, with an on-site bar offering panoramic views over of the city and plenty of pints of "the black stuff."

Down the charming cobbled streets are a variety of museums, monuments, and galleries like the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin City Gallery, and Dublin Castle. If you want to dive even deeper into the city's past, walking tours are available almost every day, and some are even free.

When evening comes, head to the lively area near Temple Bar, which is packed with traditional pubs and bars. It gets crowded at night, so if you're looking for a more subdued yet authentic Irish expereince, head over to Grafton Street.

Dublin Airport is located about 6 miles from the city center, with an express bus service running between the two every 15 minutes.

The city was cool.

March 16, 2019

The city was cool. Highlights were going to the long room at Trinity College and of course Guiness!! We spent other time exploring Ireland and feel that those have more authenticity than Dublin. Would recommend cities such as Belfast, Derry, Galway, and Cork. Make sure to go to the other small towns/villages as well. That is were Ireland should be truly experienced.

Ah, Dublin!

March 16, 2019

Ah, Dublin! SO much to see and do! And the food! I know Irish food has gotten a bad rap, but there is fantastic pub food (including a pub we went to that was opening in like 1100 and something), and the cuisines of so many countries I lost count. We actually went to a Nepalese restaurant here (yummy!) and that's something we never did here in the States (just outside NYC). Fabulous castles, churches, the Guinness brewery, museums, what's not to love? And little known fact - you can go through US Customs & Immigration right at the Dublin Airport, so no lines when you get back home

I spent the last two days of a 10 day trip in Dublin.

March 16, 2019

I spent the last two days of a 10 day trip in Dublin. Both nights I saw great performances - one at the Abbey and another at the National Concert Hall. Both were excellent. I ate at KC Peaches twice - good for a meal or snack - more than one location. Transportation easy to use. There is a bus for 7Euro to the Dublin Airport from several locations. Shopping and museums are plentiful. Lots to do!

This is a great city to visit, so walkable, so much to see.

March 11, 2019

This is a great city to visit, so walkable, so much to see. We arrive Sunday morning and left Thursday. We did a ton of sight-seeing Sun-Tues and then went out of the city a bit to Howth (which has an awesome cliff walk). That was a perfect combination of in-city touring and getting out of the city. We went in March (not crowded at all) which was a great time to go (on the cool side - it even snowed one day!). Stayed in Temple Bar area which is convenient to everything. It isn't a cheap place to visit but worth it!

With a good pair of walking shoes it is easy to get around the city and see the sites. Plenty of places to eat and food a good variety and decent value. Alcohol expensive but on a par with most European capitals.

Although the two days spent in Dublin were rainy ones ending...

March 6, 2019

Although the two days spent in Dublin were rainy ones ending the last evening with snow, I was able to enjoy the Hop-onHop-Off bus tour that I also took advantage off the second day. My most enjoyable part of the two day visit was the National Botanic Gardens. The indoor glasshouses offered a pleasant refuge from the rain with all the many plants and palms and cacti gathered from around the world. The Gardens' cafe was a welcome place to sit and enjoy a hot tea at the end of the visit. There is no problem as far as getting lost. Many visitor information centres situated around the city centre and the very friendly people of Dublin will direct you to your destination. The only problem that I encountered was the fact there was so little time to see so much!
