Guinness & Gastronomy
If it’s a Great Craic you are after look no further than a city break in Ireland’s capital city of Dublin.
More than just a great place to party the night away, it is also a UNESCO City of Literature, so grab a book and read up on Ireland’s history or tie in both by undertaking ‘Dublin’s literary pub crawl’.
Should you be lucky enough to make it over for St Patrick’s Day on March 17th you can witness the River Liffey turn Green and party like you have never partied before with the friendly, welcoming locals – the people are what make Dublin so special so get out there and meet them!
Synonymous with Dublin and Ireland’s number 1 tourist attraction, a tour of the Guinness storehouse is not to be missed. Walk around the pint glass shaped building, finding out different facts over 7 floors of brew related history. Most importantly, get rewarded at the top with a pint of the black stuff in the fabulous gravity bar with a 360 view of the city.
Where the party is at.. Dublin’s cobbled main strip of bars and restaurants means fun times both day and night… guaranteed! Grab an Irish Stew and a pint of Guinness and sing along to traditional Irish Music in this historic area of Dublin
Going to Dublin with children? Maybe a night on the tiles isn’t on the cards for your family holiday but Dublin Zoo on the other hand is a great family day out.. home to elephants, lions gorillas and giraffes… it’s sure to keep everyone smiling.. rain or shine!
If its shopping you are after, head towards upmarket Grafton Street or, for art, stroll along the main thoroughfare of O’Connell St and gaze up at ‘The Spire of Dublin project’, the world's tallest art sculpture.
There is also the Ha’penny Bridge, or Liffey bridge which you can stroll over to cross the river and hide out in small cafes or Irish Bars.
