Dublin is the capital of Ireland and despite being the largest city in the country has a compact structure and most of it can be covered on foot. Dublin offers a complete package of wonderful tourist attractions in the form of churches, museums, galleries, national parks, heritage sites, cultural centers and a whole lot more.
Dublin’s main traffic artery and widest urban street called O’Connell Street has many statues and monuments. For shopping, drinking and dining, head to the Temple Bar area, boasting the best night spots, restaurants and unusual shops in its narrow, cobbled streets. Apart from that ‘Phoenix Park’ the world’s largest enclosed municipal park, also home to Dublin Zoo, is a nice place to wander around and relax.
Other things to do include discovering Dublin’s literary tradition at the Dublin Writers Museum and James Joyce Museum or taking a step back in time and visiting one of the many historical sites, fortifications and castles like ‘Kilmainham Jail’, ‘Irish Stew’ or the Dublin Castle. Explore the Malahide Castle, a beautifully restored residence with distinct elegance and charm or visit one of the world’s largest miniature railways, the Fry Model Railway, in the vicinity of Malahide Castle. Also the world famous Doll House at Tara Palace is an attraction not to be missed.
Dublin has a fairly mild climate, so it never gets too cold or too hot. But it’s impossible to predict whether summer days will be wet or not, so bring an umbrella. There is certainty of having long summer days with 18 hours of daylight.
