From live music to literary landmarks, business hubs to nightclubs. Discover a mini metropolis with some of the friendliest locals around.
In Dublin's fair city.
Come for the pubs. The architecture. The friendly locals. The literary history. The nightlife. The shopping. The galleries. Or just to soak up the laid-back atmosphere. Dublin might be one of the more compact capital cities, but, as any local will tell you, there’s never a dull moment.
Explore Temple Bar, with its cobbled streets, busy pubs and interesting shops. Discover the regenerating Docklands, home to many a tech giant. And tick off all the must-see sights, including Trinity College and the Book of Kells, the James Joyce Centre and Dublin Writers Museum and, of course, the famous Guinness Storehouse.
Outside: impressive Georgian frontage. Inside: apartments, work-spaces, a cocktail bar, restaurant, workout studio and much, much more.
Mini break or business trip? Family holiday or a girls' weekend? Two nights or ten? The great thing about Dublin is that it can mainly be explored by foot. Meaning that however long your stay, you’ll easily be able to get a feel for the city.

The city’s bar and restaurant scene is also world-renowned, with something for every taste and every itinerary. So whether you’re looking for live music, five-star pub grub, LGBTQ+ bars, craft beer or authentic locals, our insider tips will make sure you see the Irish capital beyond the guidebook.
