Get ready for the best of times
Dublin always gives you a uniquely Irish take on life. Whether you’re shopping, eating out, visiting one of the many landmarks, or simply exploring the city as it explodes with the colours of fall, enduring memories are waiting to be made.
History and art, or food with a twist – in Dublin, old greets new
Discover the city with a scenic cruise along the coastline or a guided bike tour. The Dublin Literary Pub Crawl provides a humorous introduction into Irish literature, while the City Of a Thousand Welcomes initiative connects new visitors with proud Dubliners-turned-guides. By foot, the Dubline route is a central starting point for any invigorating ramble.
Founded in 1592, Trinity College is the oldest university in Ireland and home to the Book of Kells, an incredibly ornate 9th century manuscript brought to Ireland by monks escaping Viking raids in Scotland. The college is just one stop on the Dubline trail, a central route touring the capital and countless visitor attractions. Learn more about 20th century life in this beautiful city at the Little Museum of Dublin, a hidden gem in Ireland's capital and a Must See according to Trip Advisor.
Hop on public transport to take in the entire capital. Planning and connecting routes is easy with the new prepaid Leap pass granting travel on Dublin buses, Luas trams and DART trains. You can also use it to venture outside the capital: coastal communities, historic towns and everything in-between.
Some of Dublin’s most diverse festivals take place in the fall. Culture Night sees hundreds of exhibitions and performances in city museums, churches and historic houses – many offer free entry. Dublin Theatre Festival includes world-class events and performers in iconic city venues and the Bram Stoker Festival honours the Dublin Dracula author. Speaking of authors, don't forget you're in a UNESCO City of Literature, so expect to leave with lots of stories of your own.
Rediscover the city when the skies fade into night
Packed with attractions and entertainment, the cobbled streets of Temple Bar have a mixture of great venues. From traditional pubs like the Auld Dubliner to theatres and restaurants, this area has earned its reputation as the cultural quarter of Dublin.
For traditional Irish music, visit O’Donoghue’s on Merrion Row. A renowned pub that has attracted some rather famous musicians over the years, including The Dubliners and Bruce Springsteen, it’s adorned with historical photographs and hosts live music seven nights a week.
Dublin boasts several historic theaters that showcase the best in Irish and international theatre. The Gate has been a landmark building for more than 250 years, and over at St Stephen’s Green crammed with Victorian charm is The Gaiety, open 142 years. But it might be The Abbey that is best known. Founded in 1904 by writer WB Yeats and Lady Gregory, it was the first state-supported theater in the English-speaking world.
