Things to do in Dublin

As the lively capital of Ireland, Dublin is packed with things to do, whether you’re adventuring solo or exploring with a large group.

We’ve whittled it down to just five must-do experiences. If you can check off everything on this list, you’ll be well on your way to uncovering the best of Dublin.

Guinness Storehouse

The iconic Dublin stout has been brewed on the banks of the Liffey since day one, boasting a history as rich as its flavour.

The Storehouse tour is your backstage pass to the entire brewing process, from farm to glass. Along the way, immerse yourself in Guinness's fascinating history, including its iconic advertising campaigns that gave us phrases like “my goodness, my Guinness!” and “a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.”

But the real highlight? The tasting experience. It’s not just a sip; it’s a multi-sensory journey that starts with aroma tests and ends with the perfect pint in a specially designed tasting room. This isn’t hyperbole—this is Guinness, revered worldwide for its unparalleled taste.

As your tour concludes, unwind at the Storehouse bar with its panoramic views of Dublin. Handy markers on the windows help you spot landmarks, offering a perfect introduction to the city.

Starting your Dublin adventure at the Guinness Storehouse isn’t just about tasting a legendary brew—it’s about savouring a piece of Dublin's soul while soaking in the city’s charm from above.

Trinity Tour

Located at the heart of Dublin, a tour of Trinity College is a perfect addition to any Dublin itinerary, seamlessly fitting between other activities you may have planned. With its stunning architecture and iconic archway, Trinity College is undeniably one of Dublin's most picturesque and historically rich locations to explore.

Guided by enthusiastic student ambassadors, the tours provide exclusive insights into the campus and its hidden gems. Some tour packages include a visit to the remarkable Long Library, renowned for its resemblance to settings in Star Wars. Inside, you'll discover the extraordinary Book of Kells—a masterpiece of ancient calligraphy and vibrant illustrations, complete with whimsical details like a charming poem about a cat in its margins.

A delightful surprise awaits in the Museum Building, where an intriguing display of deer and doe skeletons greets visitors at the main entrance, showcasing the college's fascinating collections.

A little slice of classical beauty in the urban sprawl, Trinity College is one of the most beautiful colleges in Dublin, and shares in the city’s rich history.

Viking Splash Tour

Experience Dublin like never before with Viking Splash Tours—an adventure-packed way to explore the city's sights and scenes. Forget the usual city tours; Viking Splash Tours take you on a thrilling ride through Dublin aboard a World War Two amphibious vehicle.

Starting on land, the tour winds through the city streets, offering unique perspectives of Dublin's landmarks. Channel your inner Viking and let out a hearty roar to the surprised onlookers! Then, brace yourself as the tour vehicle plunges into the River Liffey, providing a refreshing twist on sightseeing with panoramic views of Dublin from the water.

Dublin’s national museums & galleries

Dublin has a great collection of Galleries and Museums: at least some of which you should definitely try and see. One of the best parts? Most of Dublin's national galleries and museums offer free entry.

Our top recommendations include the Natural History Museum, where you can marvel at eerily well-preserved bog bodies, offering a fascinating glimpse into Ireland's past. Another highlight is the National Gallery of Ireland, recently refurbished to showcase one of Europe's finest classical art collections. It's a cultural gem not to be missed during your Dublin adventure.

Find a great local pub

Dublin's pub scene is nothing short of legendary. James Joyce famously quipped about the difficulty of crossing the city without passing a pub, and he wasn't exaggerating. With a pub on nearly every corner, there's no shortage of places to relax, grab a pint, and soak up the atmosphere.

One of our top picks is P Macs, just off George’s Street. This pub offers a cosy environment where you can sink into an incredibly comfy couch or even use a piano as your table. P Macs boasts a wide variety of craft beers from around the world, and if you're unsure what to try, the knowledgeable and friendly staff are always on hand with personalised recommendations.

And if you're looking for a bit more than just great drinks, P Macs also has a fantastic selection of classic board games to keep you and your friends entertained and competitive all night long.

Didn't we tell you? We have all the recommendations you could ever need to make sure you make the most of Dublin. So all you need to do now is book that ticket, grab your bags, hop on that coach, and let the adventures begin!
