VISIT IRELAND’S VIBRANT AND HISTORIC CAPITAL
The starting point of most Irish adventures will be Dublin, the capital and largest city of the Republic of Ireland. In this city, history, literature, modern culture and architecture blend to create a fascinating atmosphere.
Situated on the east coast of the island, it is easily accessible to visitors. There are daily flights towards Europe and international destinations, and ferries to the west coast of Wales, England and to France.
Centuries of history and culture can be explored by visitors, with a host of fun activities and sights available all year long. Dublin has a conveniently compact city centre, easily walkable or accessible via Dublin buses and the Luas, the local tram system.
The most popular attraction in Dublin, the Guinness Storehouse, is located in the Liberties. In this area, you can also grab a pint at the oldest pub in Dublin, The Brazen Head.
On the south side, you’ll find the famous Temple Bar area, known for its pubs and nightlife.
North of the River Liffey, you’ll find the Old Jameson Distillery, part of the National Museum of Ireland, and the National Leprechaun Museum.
You may also want to wander around the city centre and visit historic locations. You could visit Dublin Castle, a key attraction and government complex with a long and storied past. We also recommend St Patrick’s Cathedral, dating back to 1220, and Trinity College Dublin, Ireland’s oldest university.View County Dublin
