Flights to Dublin

Pack flat shoes for a flight to Dublin – this is one of the best capital cities in Europe for exploring on foot. Even the most important Dublin attractions – including the Trinity College and 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 centre 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 chilled-out audience.

Accommodation in Dublin is worth splashing out on, but if you are 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 centre can offer quite good value for money. The best hotels in Dublin are concentrated in the centre, 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 all 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, meaning the city has travelled 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 that are 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, which include Longitude and Electric Picnic. Or come in March and join in 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

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.

Take a trip to the Guinness Storehouse

It’s an iconic product of the Emerald Isle and its development and impact on the world is not to be ignored. A trip to the museum/factory, which has been churning out ‘the black stuff’ since 1759, tells much about the rich history of the city as much as the drink.

Where to eat in Dublin

Lemon Crepe and Coffee Co

For a quick refuelling stop while travelling around Dublin, Lemon is just the ticket. It serves up made-to-order crepes in savoury and sweet varieties (the Nutella-laden ones are addictive), plus some of the very best coffee in the city. A cheese and spinach crepe and a latte will energise you for the rest of the day.

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.

L Mulligan Grocer (Casual)

This cosy spot may have a very traditional atmosphere, but the food is anything but old-fashioned. Using locally-sourced, sustainable ingredients, the chefs add a modern twist to typical Irish grub like burgers and fish and chips.

Places to stay in Dublin

The Dylan

Looking for a boutique hotel in Dublin? The Dylan is a great choice. Located just south of the city centre, this Victorian building seems quite old-fashioned from the outside, but step in and you’ll find it’s thoroughly modern, with bright colours, memory foam mattresses and sleek furniture.

Generator Hostel

Much more than just your typical hostel, the industrial-chic Generator is the perfect choice for a budget stay in Dublin. The rooms are comfortable and stylish, with wooden floors and free Wi-Fi, and the hostel has its own lounge too. Plus, the Smithfield location makes a great base for exploring Dublin’s city centre.

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.
