Dublin’s streets are a busy fusion of both past and present – a 1,000-year-old mix that has inspired writers, visitors and political firebrands alike. From the city’s Viking roots by the banks of the river Liffey, to its atmospheric medieval churches along gracious Georgian streets, walk these streets and you'll be taking a journey through history.
..from its centuries-old pubs to its Georgian architecture to the stately Trinity College at its center, the city has retained its glorious sense of history.
Marvel at the ancient illuminated manuscripts on show at Trinity College, get lost in the city's numerous museums, explore the lush expanses of the Phoenix Park, and enjoy the peace of a quiet stroll through St Stephen’s Green. Better still, follow Dublin’s Discovery Trails – a story-filled series of routes that make the city come to life.
While discovering Dublin, you may have to refuel. Indulge in some Dublin favorites like coddle and European-style quick eats in the city’s cafés, restaurants and gastro-pubs. You can also enjoy a more refined type of dining experience in our surprisingly affordable Michelin-starred restaurants, such as Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud or Chapter One.
The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink and somebody to love you.
Of course, you simply can't visit Dublin without popping your head inside some of its brilliant pubs. Filled to the rafters with chatter, laughter and lots of characters, this is where the city goes to unwind.
