Dublin is a city with so much warmth and soul that any mention of the Irish capital to fellow travellers will no doubt result in a big smile as they reminiscence about their own experiences. Home to a seemingly infinite number of friendly pubs, crumbling castles, old churches and brilliant museums, Dublin is made for city breaks.
A trip to Dublin is all about the simple things in life, namely eating out – and well – and enjoying a drink or two with friends. There are Michelin-star restaurants celebrating Ireland's high-quality produce, as well as eateries specialising in Japanese, French, Italian and American cuisines – and, of course, charming dives serving up traditional pub grub to pair with a pint.
And with hundreds of pubs to choose from, including old, traditional hole-in-the-wall joints to modern craft beer bars, you’ll always be within easy reach of a welcoming watering hole during your getaway.
Famed for its literary history, with links to George Bernard Shaw, Seamus Heaney, Maeve Binchy, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats, Dublin city breaks are made for bibliophiles. There’s always something going on, whether it’s a James Joyce walking tour or a reading at one of the city’s delightful bookshops. Libraries abound too, with Trinity College’s impressive Old Library a particular highlight.
Love your history? You can delve into Dublin’s and Ireland’s storied past at the National Museum of Ireland, head back in time at Dublin Castle and reflect on the sacrifices made by Irish soldiers during the First World War at the War Memorial Gardens.
For more culture, swap literature and history for art. As you’d expect from a capital city, Dublin is jam-packed with an eclectic mix of galleries, such as the National Gallery of Ireland, where you can find work by Jack Butler Yeats – W.B. Yeats’ younger brother – and the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
