City guide: what to see and do
The Irish capital is a well known drinking destination, and for good reason. This city produces more Guinness than anywhere else in the world, and a trip isn't complete without visiting the Guinness Storehouse. Temple Bar is the epicentre for nights out, but it can be pretty pricey – expect to pay upwards of €6 for a pint. Kehoe's, Whalen's and Bruxelles are a few of our alternative favourites for nights out in Dublin – see where to find them in our bars guide.
Looking for something to make you feel better the morning afterwards? Luckily, Dublin's got some amazing restaurants and cafes serving up both Irish fare (fry up, anyone?) and international cuisine. You'll need it for all the sight seeing you'll be doing in the afternoon, as you explore The best things to do in Dublin.
Trinity College is a good place to start, and if it rains, head to their library to see the Book of Kells – one of the oldest books in the world. Kilmainham Gaol is a sobering experience, also perfect for rainy days inside. When it's sunny, there's no better place to be than Phoenix Park, enjoying a picnic, or snapping away the Georgian houses on Merrion Square.
