Flights to Dublin

Pack flat shoes for your flight to Dublin; this is one of the best capital cities in Europe for exploring on foot. Even the most important Dublin attractions—including Trinity College and the Oscar Wilde statue—come second to just walking around and seeing where your steps take you. Stroll down nearly any street and you’ll be shown another side of the city’s history, from ancient churches and Viking ruins to stunning Georgian architecture. The small, pedestrian-friendly center is chock full of cool restaurants and shops, too.

Once the sun goes down, it’s time to join the locals in search of the good craic (fun). It’s easy to find; Dublin has a reputation as a fun city. Head for the old city area and check out Temple Bar, a lively dining and nightlife hub that’ll put even the most dedicated night owls through their paces. There are some cool, low-key spots, too, where local musicians play live to a slightly more relaxed audience.

Accommodation in Dublin is worth splurging on, but if you're looking for something more budget friendly, there are cheaper options, too. Because the city is so small, places that are a bit outside the city center can offer quite good value for the money. The best hotels in Dublin are concentrated in the center, though, including both the historic landmark hotels and the newest and most stylish places.

While Dublin’s history is rich, and its community traditions are strong, it’s still a very modern city. You can tell simply from the contemporary architecture, like the Daniel Libeskind–designed Grand Canal Square.

Dublin’s dining scene is also increasingly cutting edge, with the arrival of new restaurants that redefine the local cuisine—the city has traveled so far from its roots that it’s actually come full circle. In the Celtic Tiger boom years, the city’s culinary scene expanded frantically, with expensive restaurants creating fusion menus that offered almost everything except Irish food. Now that the economy has deflated and prices have dropped somewhat, the best restaurants in Dublin are the ones doing traditional Irish food right: great fish, well-cooked vegetables, and locally sourced meat and cheese.

Whenever you decide to visit, there’s always a lot going on in Dublin. If you visit over the summer, try to schedule a trip around Bloomsday, when the city celebrates James Joyce. Time your visit right, and you could also go to one of Dublin’s world-class music festivals, perhaps Longitude or Electric Picnic. Or come in March and join the St. Patrick’s Day party. Finally, if you can brave the winter weather, ring in the New Year at the New Year Festival Dublin.

What to do in Dublin

See live music at Whelan’s

Dublin has a brilliant live music scene—this is, after all, the city that gave the world U2, Thin Lizzy, and the Boomtown Rats, to name a few. Whelan’s is the best place in the city to see new local acts; you might just spot a future rock star. Between sets, relax in the new retro-styled parlor, one of the coolest venues in town.

Visit the National Museum

Try and make this the first stop on your visit to Dublin. The fascinating (and free) archaeological museum tells the history of Ireland through a collection of amazing antiquities, including Viking swords and the infamous “bog men”: spookily well-preserved bodies that were dragged from the country’s bogs after hundreds of years.

Take the kids to Dublinia

Dublinia is a goofy yet superbly informative museum, detailing the history of Dublin from the Vikings through the Middle Ages. It’s got a lot of interactive exhibits – you can try on Viking helmets, for instance – and is a good place to bring kids, but adults will learn plenty as well, in a very entertaining way.

Where to eat in Dublin

Forest Avenue (Modern European)

This relaxed restaurant is where you’ll find some of the best food in Dublin, and it's all due to the inventive chefs, who like to mix things up by changing the tasting menu weekly. On a budget? Try the lunch menu, which offers really good value.

The Winding Stair (Modern Irish)

A long-time Dublin favourite on the north side of the Liffey, the Winding Stair sits above a bookshop and serves up excellent Irish food that comes from all over the tiny island. Smoked fish with creme fraiche, potted crab from Dingle Bay, and an Irish cheese board are just a few highlights.

The Green Hen (French-Irish)

This cosy bistro, located right in the middle of Dublin’s ‘hipster triangle’ neighbourhood, takes high-quality local ingredients and turns them into a winning combo of French and Irish food. Don’t leave without trying the homemade bread. Be sure to book ahead.

Places to stay in Dublin

The Morrison Hotel

The Morrison bills itself as a boutique hotel, though it’s owned by Hilton, and it’s very modern and flashy, with a rock-and-roll edge. The location, just over the bridge from Temple Bar, can’t be beat if you’re in the mood to socialize—it’s walking distance from the city’s liveliest nightlife venues.

The Marker

The trendiest of Dublin’s hotels, the Marker is located in the very chic Grand Canal Square (home to the city’s newest tech hub), right on the River Liffey. Plush, brightly colored rooms and a rooftop bar with a stellar view that attracts the city’s movers and shakers are two good reasons to stay here; the brilliant Brasserie restaurant is a third.

The Shelbourne

This is the ‘grand dame’ of Dublin hotels, and has been going since 1824. It’s got an enviable location on St Stephen’s Green, and even though the rooms have kept their period charm, they’ve been updated with all the mod cons, such as docks for your iPod and safes for your laptop.

Portobello, just a stone’s throw from the city-centre, was rejuvenating and attracting a hip young crowd. Oliver too wanted to create “an alternative to the pub.

Taste of Dublin - Beef and Guinness Casserole at Fitzsimons Restaurant

At Dublin’s Fitzsimons Restaurant, overlooking the River Liffey in the city’s busy Temple Bar, chef David Lynch and his team serve a pub menu featuring this traditional Irish dish. It’s not clear exactly when and where the first recipe for beef and Guinness casserole originated, but it’s a common pub dish in Ireland and there is a long association between the famous Irish stout Guinness and food. Traditionally, Guinness has been associated with shellfish, cheese, puddings and stews Read more Taste of Dublin - Beef and Guinness Casserole at Fitzsimons Restaurant
