5 good reasons to go to Dublin
To see / do
Culture and history
Cradle of Irish literature
During your trip to Dublin, go and discover this architectural gem: Trinity College. Built towards the end of the 16th century, the University saw many big literary names go by: Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, Bram Stoker, etc. Do not miss out on the library and its Long Room. This magnificent room displays the Book of Kells, an enlightened 9th-century manuscript.
Plunging into Guinness
Right in the heart of Dublin, the Guinness Storehouse teaches visitors about Ireland’s most iconic stout. From the brand’s creation to how the drink is made, visitors will be captivated by the incredible visitor experience. Bonus: a free pint on the top floor, out on the panoramic terrace.
A quick stay in prison
Open in 1796, the Kilmainham Gaol offers a fascinating yet chilling experience. The tour leads you through the windowless cells, the courtyard and a few other rooms. Its walls held thieves, beggars and murderers captive, as well as people involved in the Easter Rising - a rebellion for Ireland’s independence.
The Temple Bar area
The very best area of town to party with the Irish is Temple Bar. Restaurants, bars, art galleries and cultural centres draw travellers in and welcome them to delve into Dublin’s culture. Get a glimpse of the area’s most renowned bar: the Temple Bar with its red façade.
Eat at church
Looking for an original restaurant? The Church’s unusual environment is quite surprising. Set up in an old church, the restaurant has kept all the original architecture. Instead of fast food, typical Irish dishes are served here, filled with fresh and local produce. Given its good reputation, we recommend that you book a table.
The Irish love cooking stews. In Dublin, the favourite is beef and Guinness stew. Beef and vegetables are left to simmer quietly in Guinness - the famous Irish stout. If you like this dish, you should try Guinness pie. The stew is simply covered in pastry.
Must-have Irish coffee
You cannot miss out on the famous Irish coffee when travelling to Dublin. Served as a cocktail and a dessert, Irish coffee should be consumed in moderation. Whisky is mixed in with coffee. A touch of sugar is added, with whipped cream on top. This delightful drink will warm you up on a rainy day.
