Insider tips for Dublin!
Dublin is a big city on the world tourism stage with its cornucopia of scenic and cultural delights - but it's not a big city in size, so rather easy to explore. And what better way to explore a city than with the help of some insider tips. We have great hotels on the site, so start planning your trip now.
The city center is eminently walkable and our first recommendation is to head down to St Stephens Green for people-watching as the locals get together mainly on weekends and enjoy the park with its beautiful lake, replete with swans., a historical bridge and even a herb garden. There are plentiful walks and the square is surrounded by cafes and restaurants so you can enjoy refreshments afterwards.
Trinity College is one of the top universities in the world and certainly one of the oldest. This prestigious place reeks of tradition, privilege and culture. This is where you'll find one of the oldest books in the world in the form of the Book of Kells. Trinity was founded in 1592 and emulates the great collegiate universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
It seems every city in the world has its fair share of Irish themed pubs. You're in the real deal now and one of the best is the Toners Pub on Lower Baggot St. It's popular for a reason - voted Best Snug of the Year in 2011 - because of the lack of pretence and the focus on serving fine beers, excellent food and doing it all in traditional surrounds.
The top five things to see in Dublin
What's not to love about Ireland? Rolling acres of green as far as the eye can see, the friendliest people in all of Europe and the sights and sounds of Dublin - with all of its history, grandeur and attractions. But what to see on limited time? Never fear, the answers are here! Cheaprooms.com has a bucket-load of discount rooms in Dublin right now to suit every budget.
Now is a good time to visit Dublin - the crowds have died down and the weather hasn't completely turned in. Check out the good deals on Cheap Rooms and get ready for days of sightseeing and nights of Guinness and good times.
The number one attraction in Dublin is the Guinness Storeroom tour. Located in the St James Gate Brewery, the tour isn't just for beer aficionados, everyone will enjoy seeing a full scale brewery do its stuff. You'll even learn the recipe so you can try your hand at home.
Kilmainham Gaol is exactly what is says - a jail, albeit one that dates back to 1796. This is as much a tour of Irish history under British rule as it is a typical jail. The penal system was a harsh and unforgiving master and still a matter of disquiet today.
The Book of Kells resides in the Trinity University grounds and is an extraordinary work of art dating back hundreds of years. A new page of the book goes on display every couple of days and the intricate artwork and beautiful colors are astounding.
The James Joyce Center in North Great George's Street is dedicated to the memory of one of world literature's greatest contributors.
