As the capital and largest city of Ireland, Dublin is full of important history and culture. The city is situated on a bay and dates back to as early as the 7th Century AD. Dublin acts as a historical and contemporary centre for education, the arts, administration, and industry.
For the best weather, it is recommended to visit Dublin between June and August. During these months it is relatively dry, however, crowd levels are very high which means flight and accommodation prices are at their peaks. If you want the best of both worlds in terms of weather and crowds, book a trip in April or May. While the weather is a bit cool in the Spring, and there is a greater chance of rainfall than in the summer, the crowd levels are much lower making for a more relaxing and affordable trip.
Dublin will keep you busy with its array of attractions. It is home to the iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral that was founded in 1191 and is the national cathedral of the Church of Ireland. Guided tours are offered in the Cathedral and provide an in-depth history lesson on the beautiful neo-gothic cathedral. Another spot that will delight history buffs is Trinity College Dublin. This famous educational institution has stunning architecture and houses the Book of Kells, which is an illuminated manuscript of the four gospels of the Christian New Testament. The Book of Kells rests in the Long Room of The Old Library of Trinity College, which is an opulent space with hundreds of rare books and is considered one of the most beautiful libraries in the world.
If you want to learn all about how Ireland’s iconic Guinness beer came to be, then you’ll enjoy a visit to the Guinness Storehouse. Housed in an old fermentation plant, the Guinness Storehouse is an interactive seven-storey museum that tells the story of how Guinness Beer was brought to life. Those who prefer to spend time in the fresh air will enjoy Dublin’s, Phoenix Park. This large urban park is the perfect area to take a walk around while enjoying an ice cream from a nearby food truck. There is also a zoo in Phoenix Park which houses more than 700 animals and tropical birds. Other things to do in Dublin include visiting one of the many art and history museums or taking a sightseeing cruise along the Liffey River. You also won’t want to miss having a drink at the Temple Bar, which has the largest whiskey collection in Ireland.
