Your guide to Dublin
All About Dublin
Known for its warm welcome, Ireland’s capital blends a growing tech scene with old-fashioned pub culture and leafy Georgian squares. For a rapid-fire insight into the city’s history, take a stroll through St. Stephen’s Green to the Little Museum of Dublin. Among the exhibitions, you’ll find a history of one of Ireland’s most famous rock bands as well. Molding the minds of students for centuries, Trinity College is home to cobbled paths, open lawns, and stone-built university buildings. The on-site Book of Kells exhibition’s centrepiece dates back to the ninth century — book ahead or prepare for long queues in peak season. To find out more about the city’s history of brewing and distilling, take a tour of one of multiple world-famous, family-owned operations, then head to a local pub or buzzing bar for a taste. Independent stores abound at the Powerscourt Centre, set in a Georgian townhouse on William Street South.
How do I get around Dublin?
Dublin Airport (DUB) is the main entry point for visitors and a well-established connection point for travellers from the United States en route to and from Europe. Taxis, car hire, and an airport express bus service are all good options to reach the city centre and Dublin apartments. Be aware, however, that parking in central Dublin is extremely hard to come by, so it’s advisable to pick up a car on your way out of the city to explore other areas. A relatively small city, Dublin is easy to navigate on foot. For harder to reach spots or venturing outside, the tram and train systems are well connected to the rest of Ireland.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Dublin?
Like the rest of the Emerald Isle, Dublin is no stranger to rain. Although spring and summer are likely to bring pleasant temperatures and no shortage of sunshine, it’s always wise to keep an umbrella with you at all times. The nation’s patron saint is celebrated on St Patrick’s Day on March 17th, with parades and parties throughout the city and across the country. The event usually coincides with the final weekend of the Six Nations rugby tournament, where matches are held at the city’s Aviva Stadium on the south side of the river. The Dublin Writers Festival takes place in early June, paying homage to the city’s famous literary heritage, while September sees the finals of both hurling and Gaelic football at Croke Park.
What are the top things to do in Dublin?
Home to Gaelic football and the world’s fastest field sport in hurling, Croke Park is a huge part of Irish history, sporting life, and culture. Walkable from the city centre, the stadium rises above neighbouring houses and includes an interactive museum where you can try Ireland’s favourite sports for yourself. You can even take a tour around the stadium roof.
The River Liffey is a major part of the city, which is why there are so many bridges crossing its path through the centre of town. Each one has its own story, with the ornate metal Ha’penny Bridge being the most famous — don’t worry, the original half-penny fee to cross no longer applies. For a more historic experience, head to Mellows Bridge, which is almost 250 years old.
From the city centre, hop on the DART north to the picturesque harbour village of Howth. Just half an hour from Dublin, Howth’s fishing community has grown to include several upscale restaurants. City dwellers and visitors alike head here for the excellent fish and seafood, along with the spectacular views from Howth Head.
