Let the friendliest city in Europe revitalise you. Offering an irresistible blend of warm Irish hospitality, rich culture and that exuberant spirit known as ‘the Craic’, Dublin has an inimitable charm that is guaranteed to captivate.
Dublin city breaks will never seem long enough, once the charismatic capital of Ireland has you under its spell. Lovers of culture will be enraptured by the magnificent historic buildings, incredible literary heritage and world-famous museums. Sports fans can take a seat at Aviva Stadium for international rugby and football tournaments, or get close to the thrilling horse racing action at Leopardstown. While the abundant retail outlets of O’Connell Street will satisfy the appetite of even the most serious shopaholics. Then there is the legendary nightlife, including over 1000 watering holes ranging from trendy cocktail-supping spots to traditional Irish pubs, where sampling the famous Guinness is a must. So order a pint of the ‘Black Stuff’ and get ready to discover the endless delights of Dublin…
Dublin is an incredibly musical city, and of course they have some great festivals to support their artists. Starting off the season from 15 to 17 July is Longitude at Marlay Park, where crowds will be dancing to Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer and The National, among many others – not to be missed. Later in the year, from 4 to 6 September, you will find Electric Picnic taking over Stradbally Hall, just 70 km outside Dublin. Dance-rock legends New Order, and Superstar DJs The Chemical Brothers, are among the stellar headliners.
If you’ve come to Dublin for ‘the Craic’ then head to Temple Bar. By day, this historic quarter with its cobbled streets offers laidback pavement cafés, fantastic outdoor markets for foodies and excellent shopping options for fashionistas. By night, Temple Bar is a buzzing hub of nightlife, where you can sup a pint of Guinness while enjoying live music at a traditional pub. Or step up the pace and groove to cutting-edge sounds at cool clubs such as Alchemy.
For sports fans, Ballsbridge is definitely the place to head to on Dublin city breaks. As well as offering a healthy selection of pubs and eateries, Ballsbridge boasts major events venues Aviva Stadium and RDS Arena. The Aviva Stadium sees the Six Nations and Heineken Cup rugby championship action take place on its turf, while RDS Arena is both the homestead of Leinster Rugby and annual host to the world-renowned Dublin Horse Show. Stay at the ideally-situated Ballsbridge Hotel.
Escape the hustle and bustle of central Dublin for glorious St Stephen’s Green. Possibly Ireland’s most famous park, this lush oasis offers an idyllic setting for leisurely strolls. Wander around the tree-lined pathways and take in flower beds overflowing with colour in spring and summer. Stop to admire the sculptures and to gaze at the waterfall cascading into the stunning ornamental lake. In summer, settle down with a picnic and enjoy a lunchtime concert. Stay at the nearby Burlington Hotel.
