Enjoy the Great Outdoors
It’s likely you think of Dublin as a city break destination, and you’re right. We have all of the makings of a fantastic city break (shopping, museums, etc) but it’s also a very scenic and green place to visit. Close to our accommodation in Dublin is one of the most scenic parks in the city, St Stephens Green. A little further out lies Phoenix Park, the biggest walled park in Europe complete with Dublin Zoo and the President of Ireland’s residence. Take a short train ride to the Dublin coast to Bray, Howth, and Dun Laoghaire to enjoy cliff walks, coastal scenery and some of the freshest fish and chips on the island.
Events in Dublin
There is always something happening in Dublin, from concerts and comedy to festivals and family fun. Summer is festival season in Dublin, and we have a great selection to choose from. Enjoy Taste of Dublin, Dublin Film Festival, Gay Pride, Forbidden Fruit, Longitude, Kaleidoscope and so much more! Summer is a great time for sport too. There is a full schedule of rugby, hurling and GAA football as well as League of Ireland soccer. There are local festivals and street parties as well as summer camps for children. The 3 Arena, Bord Gais Theatre, Gaiety Theatre and 3 Olympia Theatres have shows almost every night which range from West End to heavy metal. Check out local event guides for more information.
Shopping in Dublin
Dublin is a mecca for shopping. No matter your taste or style, Dublin has it all. Ramble down Grafton Street to shop high-end and luxury goods in Brown Thomas or one of the flagship stores like Lego, Thomas Sabo or Doc Marten. To bag a bargain, the opposite side of town (Henry Street Area) has high street names like H&M, Zara, Mango and the always-popular Penneys. Boutique and independent shops are dotted around the city in areas like Wexford Street, Georges Arcade, and Powerscourt Shopping Centre.
Explore History and Heritage
One thing Dublin is not short of is history. A quick look into the history of the state shows everything from social reform to civil war. Museums in Dublin range from traditional places of artefacts and learning to more hands-on, child-friendly spaces to discover. The most significant museums in Dublin include the National Museum, The National Gallery, EPIC – The Irish Emigration Museum, and the GPO Museum. Our heritage also lies within the local businesses in Dublin like Guinness, Temple Bar, The Liberties, and the many whiskey distilleries in the area.
Dine in Dublin
One of the best parts of exploring a new place is trying new food. While traditional Irish food may not be the most exciting – unlike our Italian, Spanish and German neighbours – we have some of the highest quality ingredients in the world and welcome all types of cuisine. You’ll find everything here from fine dining to street food. Our serviced apartment accommodation on Leeson Street is surrounded by restaurants and takeaways. Walk down Camden Street for a huge range of international dining options or for more traditional fare, walk toward Temple Bar. Our team are happy to recommend favourites or give you personalised recommendations.
