Dublin

(4.1/5 based on 145,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, breweries, museums

Fair City

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination. Founded as a Viking settlement in the 9th century, this sprawling urban center often surprises visitors with its sheer size. Nearly 2 million people live in the greater Dublin region, which represents well over a third of Ireland's total population. The city center, however, remains a relatively compact area, easily explored on foot or by bicycle. To experience the garrulous locals and their culture in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, spend some time in a traditional pub--a staple of Dublin's social life and a favorite stop for the majority of the city's foreign visitors. Use our Ireland trip generator to plan your trip to Dublin and other destinations in Ireland.

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.
