There’s something about Dublin that puts big fond smiles on people’s faces. It might be the combination of antiquated charm and unashamedly ecstatic nightlife. It’s delightfully compact, meaning you can pack so much into Dublin day trips without even thinking too much about it. Book buffs will find the streets beguiling, imagining themselves walking in the footsteps of James Joyce’s Dubliners, or Oscar Wilde. Lovers of proper beer will of course feel well at home with a pint of the black stuff in a traditional pub, while history seekers can make pilgrimages to long-standing landmarks which have their own fascinating tales to tell.
Dublin holidays are easy to arrange thanks to ebookers. Sit back and have a browse of the various packages on offer, and you’ll be able to pick your perfect pad in minutes. On top of that, you can get up to 15% off the cost if you happen to book Dublin flights and hotels at the same time. If you like the idea of being able to exit one of the city’s liveliest pubs and collapsing into bed within minutes, you should look into booking one of the hotels in Temple Bar. Alternatively, if you want somewhere more serene and genteel, you could consider staying in the elegant, up-scale neighbourhood of Ballsbridge.
A visit to the Guinness Storehouse is almost obligatory when in the city. This vast, 7-storey attraction will take you through the history of the national drink, with immersive exhibits, tasting rooms and sweeping, 360 degree views of Dublin at the top. An equally iconic piece of Dublin is Trinity College, where you can wander serene gardens and also see the Book of Kells, an intricately decorated Medieval edition of the Gospels. Dublin Castle is another must for history buffs, while if you’re here with the whole family, Dublin Zoo – with its Gorilla Rainforest and African Savanna – will let you all walk on the wild side. Come the evening, you can head to the Temple Bar district to explore a warren of bustling bars and restaurants.
If ever a city was made for seeing on foot, it’s this one. Whether you’re here for a day or a week, you can easily spend your whole Dublin holiday without once setting foot on public transport. That said, there are buses readily available, and you can also set out on a scenic journey on the DART rail service, which will let you take in sumptuous views of the Emerald Isle’s coastline. Or, if you want the freedom to roam around the Irish countryside at your leisure, you can simply hire a car and get out there.
