Neighborhood Shopping
Walk the city's main promenade, O'Connell Street, just as Dubliners have been doing since the 1600s. Boutiques and pubs line the thoroughfare and stay filled with visitors and locals for most of the day. Grab a seat and a pint to people-watch. Notice the architecture, a blend of historic 18th- and 19th-century facades with modern additions, such as the Dublin Spire. At the lower end of the street, you'll find a statue commemorating its namesake Daniel O'Connell, the famous nationalist. With our online itinerary creator, Dublin attractions like O'Connell Street can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Titrated to liberator of Nations Ireland Catholic from British rule in the 19th century he erected a solemn statue right at the beginning of the street, while at its heart stands a modern steel Spire the Spire of Dublin, Ritchie architects, among the various works to celebrate the new millennium, is right there where in 1966 was heavily damaged by bombing at the hands of Republicans in Northern Ireland the column erected in the nineteenth century in Nelson in memory of the victory of Trafalgar.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
