A medieval city that is bursting with life. Dublin is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and all-round charming place to visit. You will be spoilt for choice for things to see and do. Museums and galleries take you on a journey of discovery. Travel back in time and learn about the Emerald Isle's history at the National Museum of Ireland before bringing yourself back to the present at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Dublin is a city of literacy and was awarded the UNESCO City of Literature in 2010. You can see The Book of Kells (written in 800AD) at Trinity College. The city makes a great weekend break for couples, families and groups alike. Croke Park is a big draw when it comes to sport and a trip to the Guinness museum should feature on anyone's 'to-do' list. If not, then a pint of the black stuff in one of the countless Irish Pubs is a must.
Dublin is appealing to all ages and as such presents a wide range of accommodation options. City centre spa hotels make a perfect choice for a romantic break whilst a wide selection of B&B's and Guesthouses cater for a range of budgets and at the same time are sure to offer a good measure of Irish charm. If it's nightlife you're looking for, stay in the Temple Bar & Trinity College districts. Dun Laoghaire is just a 20 minute train ride from Dublin and is a quaint and quieter coastal town.
Visitors can easily explore Dublin by foot and with its excellent transport links. The LUAS tram is a fast and frequent service, which will take you to many of the top attractions. The city also has 450 bicycles, which are free to use for the first 30 minutes of hire.
