Welcome to Dublin

Dublin is one of Europe’s oldest and greatest cities, one that retains its historical and cultural charms. But it is also a wonderfully cosmopolitan city that offers trendy bars, elegant restaurants and stylish shops and hotels. One of the top city break destinations in Europe steeped in history and buzzing with youthful energy, the Irish Capital is at the very heart of Irish culture.

So, why not eat in a castle, enjoy a night at the dogs, sip a pint of world-famous Guinness or play a round of golf?  The options are endless: there are themed pub crawls around the city, boat trips on the River Liffey and traditional Irish music sessions in Dublin’s famous Irish pubs.  And, of course, the welcome is always warm. This is Ireland after all…

 

Must Sees

Throughout Dublin City and County there is an abundance of wonderful visitor attractions to discover and explore – from majestic museums and galleries to breweries and distilleries.  Whether your interest is sport, history, art or literature, whether you want to follow a heritage trail, visit a zoo, eat in a castle or step back in time and visit a heritage town, Dublin is packed with interesting things to do.

 

Beyond the City

Just 20 minutes from the city centre, you can experience the fabulous coastline of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, the wildness of the Dublin Mountains – and so much more.  Explore the medieval streets of Dalkey and visit the Joyce Tower where Ulysses begins. Walk the pier in Dun Laoghaire, shop ‘till you drop in the Dundrum Town Centre or peruse the CoCo Markets at the weekend.

Some of the country’s most charming coastal villages lie just north of the city. Browse Malahide’s boutiques and gift shops before heading to Howth to enjoy a sumptuous seafood lunch overlooking the harbor.

With 38km of walking trails for the dedicated walker, 7 golf courses for the avid golfer and coarse and fly fishing for the enthusiastic angler, South Dublin County is a paradise for people who love the outdoors. 

 

What’s On

Festivals in Dublin encompass a huge range of activities including sports, music of all types, Irish language and culture, food and drink, visual arts, dance, literature, theatre and multiculturalism.
