Dublin is also a modern center of culture, shopping and nightlife. Its progressive beat boasts fun-packed days that blend into nights full of Irish cheer.

Experience The Unexpected

Window shop along cobblestone streets; admire the cityscape from one of the beautiful bridges; toast to your good fortune at Temple Bar; and write your own Irish story. Follow in the footsteps of famous Irish poets, playwrights and novelists; travel through time with a visit to Dublin Castle; tour the Ireland Whiskey Trail; and end your day by singing a traditional Irish tune. Before you know it, famously friendly Dublin will be your home-away-from-home. One you won’t want to leave.

The history of the Book of Kells and the architecture of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Dublin Castle will fascinate you. If you need a sightseeing break, head over to Grafton Street to go on a  traditional Irish shopping spree. This pedestrian-only zone stretches for several blocks, boasting many international and local stores, as well as bookshops, arcades and boutiques mingled in with cafes and coffee shops.

If you’re a beer aficionado, a visit to the Guinness Storehouse will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about this world-famous brew. You’ll also have a chance to relax with a complimentary Guiness in hand, while enjoying a breathtaking 360-degree view of Dublin. For whiskey lovers, the Old Jameson Distillery is a must-see. You’ll learn the basics of whiskey distilling and what sets Jameson apart, with a free tasting before you depart.

Dubliners enjoy everything from sophisticated cuisine to traditional Irish fare; and the city caters to those tastes by offering a wide range of culinary options. Traditional Irish fare includes lamb and pea mash, steamed cockles and mussels, slow-cooked pig belly, Guinness pie and crispy pig’s ear.

Nothing quite beats the atmosphere, tastes and downright good fun of an Irish festival. Two popular festivals are held in Dublin every year. The St. Patrick’s Day Festival is a four-day, international event that celebrates all things Irish with a parade, live comedy, musical performances, exhibitions and more. And, Temple Bar TradFest is one of Ireland’s biggest and best traditional Irish music festivals, held in January.
