What Dublin has to offer?
Capital of the Republic of Ireland
Dublin is home to some of the country’s most impressive monuments: Trinity College Library, which contains the Book of Kells, written around 800AD; St Patrick’s Protestant Cathedral, founded in the 12th century; O’Connell Bridge, a very wide bridge; and Phoenix Park a gigantic 700-hectare park so large that it contains a zoo, the US embassy and the residence of the President!
Lights, Camera, Action!
To the north of Liffey, Grafton and O’Connell Street- a sort of Dublin Champs-Elysées- are vibrant and full of things to watch. With regular performances by musicians, acrobats, and jugglers make sure to check it out! These lively neighbourhoods definitely prefer happy hour to teatime.
A Golfer’s Paradise
The most famous golf champions love to come to Ireland for a game or two. Renowned for its courses, make sure to try out golf whilst you’re here! You don’t need a licence or club membership to play golf in Ireland: just choose your course and book your time.
If you haven’t hired a car, take the DART- Dublin’s coastal rail network- to Greystones Beach or the beautiful village of Howth. You could also take the train to visit Country Dublin, its castles, lakes, and green hills!
