Welcome to Dublin

Explore Dublin

Boasting some astonishing architecture and impressive heritage sites, Dublin is both gutsy and glorious. The city has charisma in abundance and though it may be lacking a little in conventional European beauty (no Mediterranean climate, no tropical flowers) it certainly makes up for it in its sociability and infectious attitude.

About Dublin

Here are a couple of facts about Dublin you’re not likely to know:

  • Nearly half Dublin’s population is under 35 years old.
  • Dublin’s Phoenix Park is Europe’s largest park.

Where to Stay

Choose accommodation either on the 'Northside' or 'Southside'

There are many different neighbourhoods in Dublin that offer a variety of glimpses into life in the city. Neatly divided into two halves by the River Liffey, Dubliners identify themselves as either ‘Northsiders’ and ‘Southsiders’. On Dublin’s north side, the city centre includes the massive Jervis shopping centre and Phoenix Park, home to Áras an Uachtaráin, the official presidential residence. Dublin Zoo and the James Joyce centre can also be found here. On the south side, Dublin’s famous Grafton Street shopping hub leads south from the river to the pleasant St Stephen’s Green. Some of Dublin’s most pleasant neighbourhoods, including Ranelagh, can be found on this side, which is easily accessed via the city’s Luas tramline. Next to Ranelagh lies Rathmines, a popular student suburb. Excellent nightlife options can be found in the area including the legendary bars and pubs along Camden Street.

Things to Do

Dublin is rapidly earning a reputation as a tourist mecca.

Dublin is Europe’s fastest growing tourist city and is full of exciting things to do. The Guinness Storehouse brewery tour is one of the most popular tourist attractions and presents the history of ‘the black stuff’ as well as showcasing Guinness’s league-of-their-own marketing campaigns. At the end of the tour you are rewarded with a fresh pint of Guinness in the Gravity Bar, a rooftop bar boasting stunning views over Dublin, the sea and the surrounding Wicklow mountains. Kilmainham Gaol is another popular attraction. Guided tours are offered around this former prison, which features an intriguing ‘panopticon’ design. The Chester Beatty Library is also worth a visit and contains a fabulous collection of books, manuscripts and drawings from Beatty’s personal collection.

Eating and Drinking

Dublin is famous for its wide selection of bars and restaurtants

Irish food is hearty, diverse and always rich in flavour. Some classic Irish dishes include the ‘breakfast roll’ (all the classic components of a fried Irish breakfast inside of a French baguette), seafood chowder (always made with locally caught fish) and Irish stew (served in most pubs). Dublin is famous for its wide selection of bars and there are endless possibilities to enjoy a pint of Guinness or an Irish coffee. On the southside, we recommend you visit The Bernard Shaw. This classic Irish bar successfully recreates the raucous atmosphere of Western Ireland and the hedonistic nightlife of Galway Town. In the large beer garden there is a double decker bus where punters can sit and enjoy tasty Italian pizza! Also visit The Porterhouse, located in the heart of Dublin’s Temple Bar district. This bar serves its own homebrewed beer which is really good! Try the Oyster Stout – the bar’s version of a Guinness but brewed with oysters!

Getting Around

Travel options within Dublin are affordable and easy-to-navigate

Travel within Dublin city centre is cheap and straightforward. Two tram (Luas) lines run through the city, serving areas north and south of the River Liffey. There are many bus routes which run by all major tourist attractions. You will probably find walking as a way of exploring is sufficient as Dublin city centre is quite compact. Anybody travelling to the outskirts of the city can take the Dart. Dublin Airport is located approximately 30 minutes by car from Dublin city centre. Buses leave for the city centre frequently. Taking a taxi is not recommended – the journey from Dublin Airport into the city is the 12th most expensive taxi journey in the world! Ferries also connect Dublin with Wales and a Sail & Rail ticket costing €40 euros will take you from Dublin to any part of the United Kingdom via its train network.
