Get yourself some wheels and

see Dublin in style! Hop on a

Dublin Bike and whizz your way

around the city’s hotspots. If

you prefer a guided tour there

are plenty of bike tour providers

in Dublin; See Dublin by Bike,

Dublin City Bike Tours and

if you feel a little lazy there’s

always Lazy Bike Tours who can

provide you with electric bikes,

so you’ll be sure not to work up

a sweat! If city centre cycling

is not adventurous enough for

you, why not try some mountain

biking? With muck in your face,

fire in your belly and nothing

on your mind but making the

bend… welcome to Ticknock

Mountain Bike Trail courtesy

of the guys in

a short

and sweet 8km loop stitched

into the Dublin Mountains,

this rollercoaster ride of hairpin

berms, wicked boulders and

technical rocky bits is just a

30 minute trip from the city

centre. Once you get to the top,

the views of Dublin City are



If castles and cathedrals are

your thing Dublin has you

covered! Take Malahide Castle,

home to an amazing banqueting

hall, a mischievous ghost named

Puck and one of the best

playgrounds in the country. In

the city centre we have Dublin

Castle, dating from 1204 AD

and still central to the affairs

of the nation. A tour of the

State Apartments and Medieval

Undercroft is essential here, but

don’t miss the Chester Beatty

Library and its excellent Silk

Road café, with Middle Eastern,

North African, Mediterranean

and vegetarian dishes.


There is nowhere quite

like Dublin for rocking that

festival feeling. Rain or shine,

Dubliners are always game for

a celebration. From St. Patrick’s

Day Festival where the whole

city turns green to celebrate our

national holiday to Bram Stoker

where the town is painted red

with a fang-tastic programme

of events celebrating Bram

Stoker and his creation,

Dracula! Fancy welcoming the

New Year in the Irish Capital?

The City is transformed into

an outdoor playground of arts,

culture and live entertainment

over three days.
