Dublin is the Republic of Ireland’s lively capital, an engaging mix of old and new where medieval streets give way to a thriving tech quarter. The city’s museums, monuments and shops draw visitors from around the globe, and its legendary nightlife takes in everything from centuries-old pubs to glitzy late-night clubs.

Dublin: city layout

Compact, walkable Dublin sits on Ireland’s east coast, bisected east to west by the River Liffey. The southern Grand Canal and the northern Royal Canal ring the city.

 

Most major attractions lie south of the river. Towards the east you’ll find Trinity College, from where pedestrianised, shop-lined Grafton Street leads south to St. Stephen’s Green. Further east, Dublin’s tech quarter sits around the Grand Canal Docks. 

 

The Guinness Storehouse is in the west, close to east-west thoroughfare Dame Street. 

 

Pedestrian Ha’penny Bridge links the medieval streets of lively Temple Bar to the Liffey’s north bank. Locals generally refer to the streets running along the riverbank as the North and South Quays.

 

Enormous Phoenix Park, in the northwest, houses a castle, gardens and the Dublin Zoo.

Dublin’s Top Attractions

For the best of old Dublin, start south of the Liffey and take a guided tour of 13th-century St. Patrick’s Cathedral, then tour the grand State Apartments at imposing Dublin Castle. You can wander the cobblestone squares of 16th-century Trinity College, where the ornate Book of Kells is on display in the library.

 

After the 1916 Easter Rising, political prisoners were held at gloomy Kilmainham Gaol, now a museum exploring the history of Ireland’s independence movement. Prehistoric gold jewellery and the intricate, eighth-century Tara Brooch are among the treasures of the National Museum of Ireland’s archaeology collection.

The concierge recommends…

  • A visit to the grand, neoclassical General Post Office, occupied by rebels during the Easter Rising of 1916. Bullet holes can still be glimpsed on the facade of the building.
  • If queuing to see the Book of Kells is too daunting, view the lovely illuminated manuscripts at the Chester Beatty Library instead. Bonus: it’s free.
  • Take time to stroll the lawns and admire the Georgian buildings of pretty Merrion Square.
  • Sink the freshest pint of Guinness you’ve ever tasted at The Gravity Bar on top of the Guinness Storehouse, which has sweeping views of the city.
  • Join the locals cheering on their favourite teams at a football or rugby match at Aviva Stadium.

Hotels in Dublin

IHG offers a wide range of options of hotels for your stay in Dublin, including many in the bustling city centre. The calmer suburbs are further from the action but have quick and convenient public transport links.

 

Minutes from the city centre by bus or DART railway, residential Ballsbridge is known for its wide, tree-lined streets. Many of Dublin’s embassies are found here. Families will appreciate the relative quiet, and kids can run loose in Herbert Park.

 

The suburb of Blanchardstown is a great choice if you’re exploring Ireland by car. It’s just off the M50, 20 minutes by bus from central Dublin, and home to several industrial and business parks.

 

A hotel near Dublin Airport (DUB) is good for business travellers making a quick stop or anyone with an early departure. Nearby, paths wind through the trees and fountains of picturesque Santry Park.

Eating Out in Dublin

Dublin’s restaurants offer a wide choice of international cuisines. The dining scene has heated up in recent years, with young chefs using locally sourced meat, fish and vegetables to create fresh, modern takes on traditional Irish fare.

 

You’ll find the biggest concentration of restaurants south of the Liffey, especially in Temple Bar, with more elegant choices to the south towards St. Stephen’s Green and Merrion Square. Foodies can sample local delicacies on the Dublin Tasting Trail guided tour.

 

With two Michelin stars to brag about, Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud is ideal for a money-no-object feast. At the other end of the budget spectrum, legendary Leo Burdock’s has been serving fish and chips in Christchurch since 1913.

 

Every Saturday, vendors at the Temple Bar Food Market sell everything from local produce and freshly baked bread to sushi and oysters. Street food fans should check out Irish Village Markets, which brings international treats to hungry lunchtime crowds at sites around the city from Tuesday to Friday. 

The chef recommends...

  • Dublin Coddle: Local author Jonathan Swift was said to be a fan of this hearty dish, usually made with potatoes, onions, sausage and bacon.
  • Oysters: Fresh, local oysters are on the can’t-miss list for seafood lovers.
  • Irish Stew: Traditionally made with lamb, root vegetables and onions, though beef and Guinness is another popular variation.
  • Black and White Pudding: Part of a traditional Irish breakfast, these sausages are made of oatmeal, suet, pork and spices. 

Shopping in Dublin

Dublin visitors can shop anywhere from high-end fashion retailers to humble market stalls, scooping up funky vintage accessories, fine jewellery and everything in between.

 

Pedestrianised Grafton Street is Dublin’s best-known shopping area, with high-street shops along the main drag and some quirky finds on the intersecting streets. Cow’s Lane is known for its designer boutiques and hosts a Saturday market for clothing, handmade crafts and jewellery. Francis Street is the place for antiques and collectibles.

 

Posh Powerscourt Centre mixes local and international fashion boutiques with antique shops and restaurants in an elegant Georgian townhouse. Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre has familiar brands in a central location. George’s Street Arcade pulls together a jumble of independent boutiques and stalls in a purpose-built, 19th-century building. 

 

The suburban Blanchardstown Centre, about 20 minutes northwest of Dublin, has around 180 stores, with a cinema and the Leisureplex entertainment complex to keep non-shoppers busy.

Best souvenirs to buy in Dublin

  • A tin whistle: Founded in the 1920s, Waltons Music has played a key role in the publication and distribution of traditional Irish tunes. A whistle and songbook make great souvenirs for music lovers.
  • An Avoca throw: Avoca has been weaving its 100% lambswool throws since the 1700s, but with bright, modern colours, they’re anything but old-fashioned. Their Suffolk Street outpost also has clothing, housewares and a café.
  • Edibles: Take home a taste of Ireland with something as simple as Irish sea salt, or wow your favourite whiskey-lover with a bottle from Jamestown Distillery, complete with custom label.

Culture & Nightlife in Dublin

Packed with bars, clubs and restaurants, Temple Bar is Dublin’s cultural quarter and busiest nightlife area. It can attract a boisterous crowd after dark, but things are calmer in the older, western end of the district. You can catch trad sessions (where musicians drop in to perform Irish folk music) at pubs all over the city.

 

Dublin Writers Museum explores the city’s proud literary history through the possessions, early editions and unpublished writings of such greats as James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw and Samuel Beckett. In September and October the Dublin Theatre Festival presents plays by local and international writers. You can enjoy performances all year-round at the Abbey Theatre and the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

 

The National Gallery of Ireland shows European and Irish art from the 13th to the 20th centuries, with a room dedicated to the paintings of Jack B. Yeats. Set in the 17th-century Royal Hospital Kilmainham, the Irish Museum of Modern Art houses the country’s contemporary and modern art collection.

Where to hear trad music in Dublin

  • The Cobblestone is a long-standing, no-frills favourite, with free live music every night.
  • Dating back to 1198, The Brazen Head is about as traditional as it gets. There’s music every night here too, plus a popular Sunday afternoon session.
  • The Tuesday night Folk Club at Whelan’s often features artists who put a modern twist on trad.

Visiting Dublin with a Family

The Irish are a family-friendly lot. Kids are welcome in most places and there are plenty of activities to keep little ones busy.

 

Massive Phoenix Park has a huge area to explore and is home to elephants, tigers and hippos at Dublin Zoo. For a quick play break in the city centre, try the playground at St. Stephen’s Green.

 

Dublinia recreates the sights and sounds of Viking and medieval Dublin with costumed actors and interactive exhibits. On a Viking Splash tour you can view the city from both land and water in a Second World War amphibious vehicle.

Top spots for active families

  • Skerries: The sandy beaches and play areas of this coastal town half an hour’s drive north of Dublin should keep your kids busy.
  • Dublin Mountains: Half an hour’s drive south of the city, and great for a family hike. There are some short trails around the Hell Fire Club, a former hunting lodge with views over Dublin Bay.
  • Aquazone: float in the wave pool and swish down water slides at this high-tech water park, part of the National Aquatic Centre.
  • Fort Lucan Outdoor Adventureland: In spring and summer kids can scramble over towers and suspension bridges at this cool adventure playground. There’s an under-fives’ area, plus go-karts and water slides.

Top Rated Dublin Hotels


Excellent place to stay
By Knas3
New hotel, modern, clean, and at a reasonable price. The shuttle bus is a big plus. The staff is VERY helpful and kind. Hot Irish Breakfast for 15 euros is a bargain in Dublin. Because the hotel is a [More] few weeks old, you can smell the new carpets and the new furniture, it may bother some people. I will use this hotel again for sure. [Less]
What an amazing staff!
By Natasha C
I really loved my one night stay at this hotel. And all credits go to the front desk staff, especially Shaji Antony who did everything possible to make my stay wonderful. He was so helpful and nice [More] to me, indeed the best customer service I have received. I arrived very late at night but still he made me feel like I've arrived at home. I would also like to mention the other employee working that night with him (12th september, night), he was so helpful and sweet and Holiday Inn is lucky to have staff like both him and Shaji. I would also like to mention that the room was beautiful and I wish I stayed longer! Truly a great experience and will definitely recommend! [Less]
What an amazing staff!

My stay at the new Holiday Inn was truly amazing, especially thanks to Shaji Antony that was in Reception on Sept 12th night, as well as another staff member that was with him. Shaji Antony was the [More] one who did my check in and let me tell you he was so helpful and nice to me. Holiday Inn is blessed to have staff like him who treat the customers with so much respect and makes them feel welcomed. There was also another guy whos name I am not aware of but he was really nice and whenever I needed something he made sure to provide me with the best service possible. Thank you Shaji Antony and Holiday Inn for such a wonderful experience! I would definitely recommend this hotel [Less]

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 Nights. We had a wonderful experience. Because I am a IHG member, they let us check in early, which was great because we flew all night and needed to take [More] a nap.

Great Hotel
By Sam520
This is a great hotel to stay in if you want to stay near the airport. However, I would not recommend it to anyone traveling by or planning to rent a car. The parking is horrible. It is a parking [More] garage with inadequate space for turns and in the aisles. Hard to get into and out of. If you plan to have a car, look for a hotel with better parking. [Less]
