Dublin City Guide

A city break in Ireland’s capital city, Dublin, takes you to the political and cultural heart of the Irish Republic. Rich in culture, Dublin’s gorgeous Georgian architecture, the legendary pub culture and its unique character make for a trip you’ll never forget.

Temple Bar

The River Liffey runs through the city; once the city’s lifeline, it’s now home to famous attractions like the Guinness Brewery. The Temple Bar area in the centre of the Old Town has been extensively renovated, and with its numerous classic pubs and modern bars, is a firm favourite for those looking for a night on the tiles. The colourful nightlife and diverse cultural events attract the crowds every weekend. The narrow streets and restored houses in this neighbourhood are reminiscent of the original Dublin, as James Joyce immortalised in his novels, and stand in stark contrast to the city’s more modern buildings.


O 'Connell Street is the shopping area of ​​the Irish capital, providing shopaholics a huge variety of mainstream and boutique shops. Down by the redeveloped Dublin Docklands, the Waterfront is characterized by modern architecture, art galleries and restaurants. The suburb of Kilmainham is great for the history fanatics and offers visitors the chance to go off the beaten path for an intimate sightseeing tour. The former prison, Kilmainham Goal, is also now a museum where you can learn about Irish life and history.

Park Life

In the centre of Dublin you’ll find St. Stephen’s Green, one of Dublin’s most famous and most beautiful park. Providing both architectural and botanical delights of all kinds, you’ll find the place packed during the sunny season as residents and visitors alike gather to enjoy the summer sun. Be sure to check out the nearby Georgian architecture, such as Iveagh House. If you still haven’t had your fill of city greenery, be sure to pay Phoenix Park a visit. Located in the northwest of the city, Phoenix Park is one of the largest and grandest in Europe and is home to a number of rare and ornamental trees, as well as grand monuments, such as the Wellington Monument and The Phoenix Monument. And if all that’s not enough, you can always pay a visit to Dublin Zoo.

Historical Must-Sees

The famous Trinity College is the oldest university in Ireland. A favourite for tourists, its exquisite grounds, beautiful architecture and its extensive library, which contains the original of the precious Book of Kells, prove a constant draw for visitors. The Christchurch Cathedral of 1028 is the spiritual heart of the city and one of the most famous sights in Dublin; she was an important place of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages and visiting the medieval crypt, one of the largest in the UK and Ireland, can make you feel like you’ve actually been transported back to the Middle Ages.
