Hopping off the plane at Dublin is a fantastic feeling as from that day, till the day you leave to go back home, you know you’ve got a vibrant city to explore. With hotels near Dublin Airport becoming more and more prevalent, there’s no better time to visit Dublin and sample all that it has to offer.
So get online, book at Travelodge.ie and start planning your trip! You will not be disappointed, plus you get to see all of the following fantastic sights (and much, much more!)
1.) The Guinness Storehouse
Where else could you start your trip than with a nice pint of Guinness at the place where it all began? It’s Dublin’s most popular attraction and you’ll soon realise why once you’re taking one of the guided tours around the storehouse and supping on your first ‘Irish’ pint of Guinness (it’s true, it really does taste better in the Emerald Isle.)
2.) Christ Church Cathedral
One for the culture vultures, Dublin’s Christ Church Cathedral is right at the heart of the city, and has been for nearly a thousand years. You can trace the impressive building’s history as far back as the Vikings and Anglo-Normans right to the present day and the architecture really is something to behold.
3.) The James Joyce Centre
One of Ireland’s greatest authors, this centre is dedicated to understanding the life and works of James Joyce. Definitely one for the book lovers in your party, this will give you a greater understanding of the man behind some of the country’s best novels and in turn a greater understanding of the city as a whole.
4.) The Old Jameson Distillery
You’ve done the Guinness Storehouse, but now it’s time for one of Ireland’s other most popular exports – whiskey. The triple distilled, smooth, Jameson Irish Whiskey is renowned across the globe and you can have a tour of where the magic happens. You even get to have a taste yourself!
