Tips for your trip to Dublin


The capital of Ireland, the capital of beer. This is Dublin for most tourists in the world. Especially young people love this city very much and make it their favourite holiday place, every year more. A different capital, it is quiet as a country town, elegant as a royal city, joyful – especially at night – as the best tourist location. You cannot miss its musums, buildings, churches, and certainly will never miss visiting its pubs. Here is what you should know before booking your trip to Ireland’s capital city.

When to go to Dublin

Summer is the “warmest” season, here, though temperatures will never exceed 20°C. The months of June and July are also the most rainy, so the best period to visit this city perhaps is late spring. Live Dublin in April, May or early June, when cool temperatures and sunny day will be the perfect mix for a tourist stay.

How to get to Dublin

Since it is the capital Dublin is perfectly connected to every part of Ireland and to Northern Ireland as well. Two railway stations, the big port and the international Dublin Airport make sure you can get to this city with every means at any time. The airport is close to the city and well connected through taxis, buses, private transfers.

How to move

Dublin city centre is small and easy to explore on foot. But moving through the city area is as easy, with every means. Only one ticket allows you to go by urban bus, urban tramways and trains. The city train is electric and works like a open air subway. But you can also decide to ride a bike, thanks to rent-a-bike or bike sharing services.

What to see

The main tourist attractions in Dublin are churches, schools and pubs. You cannot miss the beautiful gothic cathedrals, like Christ Church, St Patrick, St Mary, Trinity Church. You must visit the university campus at  Trinity College, Royal College and University of Dublin buildings.

At night, let yourselves enjoy the street music, street art, delicious dinners and the unique beer at local pubs. The most famous – and oldest – one is Temple Bar Pub. Also worth the visit, in the city: Guinness Beer Factory, Dublin Castle, the bridges (Ha’Penny,  O’Connell) over river Liffey.
