5 Days travel guide in Dublin Ireland

✳️Transport

The EU is easily accessible because you need only your ID card, don’t worry if a border policeman says otherwise -it happened to me. The airport isn’t far from the center and Ireland also has its own air company, Aer Lingus. Check if they have sales.

✳️ Food and drinks

Dublin is famous for the Guinness beer, but give also a try to other beers and alcohol such as whiskeys! 🍴Irish food is based mainly on meat and fish. Some traditional dishes are the Irish Stew, Seafood Chowder, and their generous breakfast. For lunch, almost every restaurant is closed, but you can still find some international restaurants, cafes, and fast-food chains.

✳️Places to visit in Dublin

  • Visit the city center, in particular, Temple Bar, the Trinity College Library, St.Patrick, and the St. Christ Cathedrals.
  • Spend an afternoon in Phoenix Park and look for fallow deer.
  • Go to Howth, there are seals in the port and amazing walks.
  • Learn how Guinness beer is made and drink a pint in the Guinness Storehouse.
  • Notice that almost every museum/church/clothing store closes at 5 p.m.
  • Remember to book tours or other activities, in particular the Guinness Storehouse.
  • In pubs, underage (18) can’t stay after 10 p.m., even if with an adult, and in many pubs you must be at least 21 years old.
  • Some national museums are gratis, the others have student discounts.

✳️Accommodation

I’ve stayed in Dublin One Hotel and I really recommend it. It’s twenty-minute from the center and, when I looked, it was cheaper than hotels and hostels. In addition, it’s clean and comfortable and it has delicious breakfast/brunch options, even vegan, so book the breakfast too.

✳️Safety

I felt pretty safe during the day and people are very kind, if you need anything ask them! In the evening you have to be more careful because there are plenty of drunk people, stay on busy streets and check around you.
