Delightful Dublin

Right on our doorstep and too often overlooked, the spectacular city of Dublin on the east coast of Ireland offers a wonderful combination of history, culture and a buzzing atmosphere both day and night.

Begin your Dublin holidays with a bus tour of the city and take in all the great sights including City Hall, Dublin Castle, Temple Bar and Trinity College, then once you’ve got your bearings it’s an easy walk from your Dublin hotel to the next attraction. The city is split by the River Liffey, which offers the opportunity for a romantic boat trip or a walk along the riverside and beautiful parks in the city; you can also find some great places for a relaxing al fresco lunch.

Family Fun and Crates of Culture

Holidays to Dublin are a fantastic choice for families as there’s no language barrier, the food is varied enough to feed even the fussiest of children and there are lots of child-friendly attractions. Phoenix Park is full of fun activities for kids including the Dublin Zoo, where you can see all kinds of animals and plenty of green space to play and relax in, but if you need to wear them out, take them to Aquazone at the National Aquatic Centre in Blanchardstown for a fun-packed family day out with an exciting range of water slides, wave pools and rides.

If you fancy a day at the beach during your holidays in Dublin, you could head to sandy Donabate Beach or the popular Killiney Beach down the coast. There are plenty of shops to keep you busy for hours, so head to Grafton Street or Henry Street for the best the city has to offer.

There are many museums and galleries on Dublin City breaks so don’t miss the National Museum, the National Gallery and the Irish Museum of Modern Art during your Dublin holidays. A holiday in Dublin wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Guinness factory and don’t forget your free pint after the tour!

Romance

St. Stephens Green is an ideal place to take a romantic picnic, stroll and people watch, with a garden dedicated to poet W. B. Yeats and resplendent flowers blooming through the spring and summer. The medieval Christ Church Cathedral features working bells, soaring nave, stained glass windows and more decorative details and is home to the archbishop of Dublin. More romantic spots are on offer in Dublin’s many castles, including Dublin Castle and Malahide Castle.

Shopping

Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre has about one hundred shops including United Colors of Benetton, The Perfume Shop and The Donegal Shop as well as a food court. It is centrally located on Stephens Green West. For a more independent shopping experience, the Temple Bar area offers a weekly market selling food, books and clothes, or try The Cow’s Lane Designer Mart in Temple Bar for unique designer pieces.

Day Trips

The home of the Blarney Stone itself, Blarney Castle could almost be seen as the destination of pilgrimages for those wanting the ‘gift of the gab’ gained from kissing the Blarney Stome according to legend. Beautiful gardens and rock formations are also available to visitors of this castle, dating from 1446. Visit the early monasteries and churches amongst the beautifully rugged countryside of the Aran Islands, or visit the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed cluster of aroung 40,000 bassalt columns rising from the sea.
