Culture & Heritage

If shopping isn’t your thing, you won’t be bored… Dublin can trace its origins back 1,000 years and since then it has built an impressive range of historical buildings, museums and galleries. Hop on board any of the red City Sightseeing buses and enjoy the freedom to explore Europe’s friendliest city across two great routes. A 2-day hop on hop off Dublin city tour ticket takes you to Dublin’s free museums and galleries and top attractions such as the Book of Kells at Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse and many more. New this year is the City Sightseeing Blue Route visiting Glasnevin Cemetery and of course our own Croke Park attractions with the GAA Museum, Stadium Tour and Ericsson Skyline roof top tour.

Music & Entertainment

Music is an important part of Irish culture and Dublin offers a wealth of live music venues – both traditional and contemporary along with theatre and performance all year round.
 

Shopping

When you visit a new destination, you’re always going to have to pick up something for the folks back home.  The Dublin shopping experience is hassle free with something for everyone.  The city centre is quite compact so you can spend a day discovering quirky shops or high street department stores on foot or jump on the LUAS (Dublin’s tram) and visit the Dundrum Town Centre or other suburban shopping centres.  Dublin is home to Ireland’s most famous shopping district, Grafton Street, but don’t be afraid to head off the main streets to discover an eclectic mix of shops and markets.

Dining Out

Dublin’s restaurants offer a wide and varied choice to suit all palates and pockets. There’s naturally some good Irish grub (not just bacon, cabbage and potatoes!) and a range of tasty ethnic eateries. Take some time out to discover the range of cuisines Dublin has to offer - from Michelin Star dining at Chapter One to tapas restaurants like the Port House, American style BBQ at Pitt Bros to traditional fish n’chips at Leo Burdock’s  - there’s something for everyone.  Gastropubs have become really popular and again there are lots to choose from.
