What to see in Dublin?

Dublin, the Republic of Ireland’s capital city, is an exciting and vibrant hub of culture, history, beautiful architecture, the arts, industry – and pubs! Originally a Viking settlement at the mouth of the River Liffey, the city has a population of over 1.2 million. The Liffey divides the city in two: the Northside and the Southside. The name ‘Dublin’ comes from the Irish for ‘black, dark’ and this refers to a deep tidal pool that was once near the shore of the impressive Dublin Castle. Nicknamed the ‘Fair City’, Dublin is noticeably verdant, with more green space per kilometre than any other European capital. To take advantage of this, book a stay at a hotel near the landscaped park of St Stephen’s Green, or close to Phoenix Park, which even has its own herd of deer. Other popular attractions include Dublin Zoo and Ashtown Castle, whilst Ha’penny Bridge and Trinity College are both recognisable landmarks. Wander around stunning Ardgillen Castle and its grounds before taking the footbridge to Barnageera Beach. Dublin has long been a centre for literature and creativity, and this reputation still stands today: the birthplace of Oscar Wilde is also the home city of U2 (who themselves own a Dublin hotel). Learn more at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the National Museum of Ireland.

What's Dublin like?

Dublin and Dubliners have a genuine charisma and zest for life. If you want to get to the real heart of Dublin, visit Dublin on St Patrick’s Day and sample a Guinness or two – with over a thousand pubs in the city, it’s destined to be a long night! Recent years have seen Dublin attract the European HQs of tech giants like Microsoft and Google. Their presence has added a high-tech slickness and sense of innovation to the city and its people. Literature fans should catch June’s Bloomsday, a day to celebrate James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses with readings, guided walks – and, of course, a pub crawl. Book accommodation near the James Joyce Museum and see the setting for the book’s first scene. With good public transport in place, visitors can take the bus, train (including the DART – Dublin Area Rapid Transit) or tram to get around. Cycling is popular in Dublin and it’s a great way to see the city sights. All of which can help you hit the shops at Grafton Street, Henry Street or one of the huge department stores like Brown Thomas to bag some souvenirs.
