Dublin, Ireland’s

capital, is a city

that truly captures

your imagination.

Cobbled alleys, Viking

remains, Georgian

squares. Dublin’s

history goes back

over a thousand years.

Step back in time in this city full

of literary landmarks, from the

James Joyce Centre to Trinity

College, alma mater of many

of Ireland’s greatest writers.

Steeped in history, Dublin

is a medieval city where an

abundance of free museums

and art galleries chronicle its

long and colourful past, while

the pubs and cafés buzz with

traditional and contemporary


Just 20 minutes outside the city

centre you will find charming

coastal towns and fishing

villages that dot the coastline

and provide lots of options

for craft shopping, water

sports, seafood dining and

breath taking walks against the

spectacular backdrop of Dublin

Bay. Dublin is home to the

friendliest people in the world.

Add to this live music, packed

pubs, hip clubs and plenty of

culture plus a passion for sport

and you have everything you

need for a truly enjoyable visit!



Their contents are priceless,

but entry to some of Dublin’s

top museums and galleries is

free. That means you could skip

from bog bodies at the National

Museum of Archaeology to

canvases by Caravaggio and

Jack B Yeats at the National

Gallery. You could check out

four centuries of furnishings

at the National Museum of

Decorative Arts and Century,

before visiting Francis Bacon’s

reconstructed studio at Dublin

City Gallery the Hugh Lane.



Start your journey with Dublin

Discovery Trails, a series of self-

guided walking trails, extending

from Kilmainham Gaol through

to Trinity College and up to

Parnell Square. From Dublin’s

glorious Viking origins to the

havoc caused by the 1916 Rising,

let magical tales of the city’s

colourful past weave their spell

as you wander from trail to trail

with the Dublin Discovery Trails

App, which is free to download!

Or have a booze-soaked history

lesson and do a Literary Pub

Crawl which takes you from the

Duke pub through the cobbled

square of Trinity College and

into several pubs in a maze of

narrow streets.
