Dublin is the cultural heart of the Republic of Ireland.
The historic museums and galleries showcase a world-class collection of artwork. Meanwhile, some of the biggest names in Ireland have made themselves at home here – from Guinness and Jameson to James Joyce and William Yeats. So you could be sipping an Irish stout or whisky in a pub one minute and treading in the footsteps of Jonathon Swift at Trinity College the next.
As a bonus, flights from Newcastle are only just over an hour long.
Direct flights last around 1 hour 10 minutes. It’s usually not worth booking a flight with a stopover – they can take anything up to 24 hours.
Ryanair and Aer Lingus, if you fancy flying direct. British Airways, Air France, Flybe and KLM offer longer flights with stopovers.
Up to 5 direct flights from Newcastle to Dublin take off a day. There are also around 30 indirect flights.
You’ll fly from Newcastle Airport to Dublin Airport.
Some of the really cheap Newcastle to Dublin flights take off in the late evening. But it’s such a short trip that most direct flights are a steal.
Dublin’s spot between the River Liffey and Irish Sea has made it an important port over the years.
Grand castles, cathedrals, colleges and canals make up the city. Most of the must-sees gather on the south side of the river, including the unmistakable National Museum of Ireland and St Patrick’s Cathedral.
Meanwhile, the cobbled streets of Temple Bar double as the entertainment district. Expect generations-old pubs, touring theatre shows and nightclubs. Alternatively, head to the Guinness Storehouse, where you can sip the famous stout on the rooftop bar.
