Things To Do in Dublin

 

Whether you are visiting Ireland’s lively capital or live here, there are plenty of fun things to do in Dublin. An engaging, walkable city, Dublin has several pedestrian-friendly areas to explore.

Grafton Street is a popular shopping area filled with pubs, cafés, and a lively street scene. Stroll through St Stephens’s Green, a lush historic park and garden in the center of the city. Check out Dublin Discovery Trails – free self-guided walking trails – or seek out the Talking Statues scattered throughout the city to learn about Dublin luminaries, including James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, and Molly Malone.

Tour historic Dublin Castle, today’s home of the Irish government, and explore its ancient past. Visit the Spire of Dublin, a contemporary, stainless-steel monument that pierces the Dublin sky like an enormous pin and can be seen from almost anywhere in the city.

Wander the Trinity College campus, and visit the Treasury, which houses the famous Book of Kells manuscript as well as the thousands of ancient books in the stunning Long Room Library.

Other fun things to do in Dublin include a visit to the Dublin Zoo, a Dublin bike or walking tour, or a stop at theGuinness Storehouse, home to the famous beer and Ireland’s most popular tourist attraction.
