With a varied nightlife on offer from traditional Irish pubs to lively bars and nightclubs, you can certainly let your hair down!

Historical sites are scattered around the city to fill your itinerary with culture and aesthetic awe. Museums and monuments are included in day tours presenting a historical overview of the city, perfect for family visits or city breaks to Dublin.

A Modern Taste of History

To experience Dublin’s quirky side, Temple Bar is the perfect place. Known as the city’s ‘cultural quarter’, this area boasts some of the lesser known cafes, restaurants and bars, as well as beautiful cobbled streets and charmingly rustic architecture. There are a number of smaller independent hotels nestled in and around Temple Bar, and the area comes alive on market days with colourful fruit and veg stalls offering deliciously fresh produce.

History-seekers delight in the effortless elegance and ornate aesthetic of Georgian Dublin. Located in the southeast section of the centre, this small area boasts some of the city’s most stunning period buildings. For a literary tour, head to the James Joyce Cultural Centre or the Oscar Wilde House, where you and the family can cherish the historical importance of Ireland, perfect for those looking to enjoy City breaks to Dublin in style.

Traditional Irish eateries sit beside steakhouses and gastro restaurants in the city centre close to many attractions. Hotels and apartments here are contemporary and perfect for setting up camp right in the heart of the action on Dublin city breaks.

If you’re looking to leave the children at home during Dublin weekend breaks, be sure to hop along to the Guinness Storehouse, where you can do more than just sample the world famous stout. If you’re more inclined to a spirit or two, be sure to pay a visit to one of the few remaining whiskey distilleries, to sip the drink that’s been made in Ireland since the 7th century.
