What to Know Before You Go on Your Weekend Break to Dublin

Make the most of your trip to the Irish capital and understand what you can expect to see.

  • 1. In and around Dublin

    It's easy to walk around the many historic sites of Dublin, a compact city that can be explored at a leisurely pace. You can head out of the city to see nearby areas even on a short break, with the Wicklow Mountains and charming fishing villages close by. You'll get a great sense of Ireland's personality even if you only have a few days.

  • 2. Pub and club culture

    Dubliners are well known for their love of a good night out, and there is a staggering amount of places to choose from. Grab a pint or a whisky in one of the historic bars and soak up the atmosphere, perhaps staying for a pub lunch or dinner. If you want to keep the night going, there are many nightclubs open into the wee hours.

  • 3. Free museums

    It's well worth checking out the range of superb local museums, many of which won't cost you a penny (although a donation is always welcome to help support them). The National Museum and National Gallery are both excellent, housing famous paintings and other treasures. Chester Beatty Library contains rare books alongside other artefacts, including exotic decorative art.
