Dublin is the jewel of the Emerald Isle; a modern, bustling city that’s full of charm and places to see. With a flight time of just an hour from London and routes from all over Europe, it’s the perfect place to get away for the weekend. With so much to see and do, we’ve put together a guide to the perfect 48 hours in the city.
Our most important piece of advice is to pick up a Dublin Pass at the airport from the Visit Dublin Tourist Office. It costs €55 per person for two days or €35 for one day and guarantees you access to places such as Dublin Zoo, the James Joyce Centre and AquaZone at the National Aquatic Centre. If you make the most of it, you can save a significant amount of money.
In the daytime, why not take in some shopping at George’s Street Arcade or Grafton Street, or you could experience true Irish hospitality in the pubs and bars of the Temple Bar area. Of course, no visit to the great city of Dublin would be complete without a trip to the famous Guinness Brewery where you can learn all about the black stuff and get to pour your own pint at the end.
With expert advice contributed by the excellent folk at Visit Dublin and Christ Church Cathedral, it’s the perfect companion to your weekend in Dublin. You can download the guide (it’s 894kb) here:
