Dublin City is never boring.

If you’re looking for great value accommodation for your next Dublin trip, steer clear of the overpriced hotel and book a serviced apartment in Dublin. PREMIER SUITES offer Dublin City Centre accommodation, perfect for exploring and enjoying some of the best activities the city has to offer. Here are a few of our favourites:
The Viking Splash Tour is an alternative to a traditional bus tour and passes just metres from our front door. Enjoy hilarious commentary and facts from their charismatic drivers & guides on land and be amazed as the Aqua- bus enters the River Liffey for an alternative view of Dublin. Be prepared to act like a noisy Viking invader while onboard!
Jameson is one of Ireland’s most popular alcoholic drinks and Dublin is proud to be the home of this delicious whiskey. Jameson Distillery Bow St. is the original site where Jameson Irish Whiskey was distilled until 1971 and it was shortly after turned into one of the most successful tourist attractions. They take you through the process of distilling, ending with an informative tasting experience.
Kilmainham Gaol (pronounced jail) is slightly outside of the city centre but is undoubtedly one of the most significant buildings in Irish History. It has not been an active jail since 1924, in the years prior it was home to some of the most famous/infamous Irish prisoners and the leaders of the 1916 rising. The tour is a fascinating look into the lives and imprisonment of these supposed criminals and the history of Ireland.
Dublin Zoo & Phoenix Park:
Dublin Zoo has been open since the 1830s and is one of the country’s most popular attractions for good reason. It is now home to over 400 animals ranging from savannah beasts to the most exotic birds and rare reptiles you can imagine. They play a huge role in conservation, study and education of the animal kingdom and encourage all visitors to learn and explore for themselves. The Zoo is located inside the Phoenix Park, the largest walled park in Europe which is a fantastic destination in itself.
The Irish Museum of Modern Art is not your usual art gallery. Set in the grounds of the old Royal Hospital in Kilmainham, and surrounded by perfectly manicured formal gardens, visiting IMMA is an activity you won’t soon forget. Far from the traditional gallery paintings, modern art comes in a huge variety of mediums from sculpture and obscure materials to light and sound. There are often themes to the exhibitions and their fascinating Freud Project has been an almost permanent part of the gallery for years.
Little Museum of Dublin:
Another alternative Dublin museum, very close to your perfect Dublin city centre accommodation, is the Little Museum of Dublin. While our National Museum and Gallery will enlighten you on all of the more serious parts of the history of Ireland, the Little Museum of Dublin will give you an insight into local Dublin people, how they lived and the external forces that affected daily life like illness and poverty. They also offer local walking tours with specific themes like our famous writers & authors, women’s history and parks in the area.
