Dublin City Reviews

  • 70%


    When compared to other European capitals, Dublin might not be breathtaking, but it is a great place to breath and live the Irish culture, especially if you are interested in the 1916 rising and the independent process. Don't forget to have a pint of Guinness at its home!

    Insider Tip:Take some time to explore places out of Dublin, such as Howth or Bray. Also spend a couple of days in Kilkenny, a lovely medieval town, which is not far away from Dublin (2 hours by bus).

    Look for little man in his 6o's named Gerald. he walks around the tourist attractions and gives free tours. He is SO knowledgable and is such a sweet man. Meeting him and going on one of his tours was my favorite part of Dublin. He knows all the nooks and crannies and secrets of Dublin. Find him and you won't be disappointed!

    Love of my life

    I've been travelled a lot but Dublin is where my heart is, since the first time I was there (15 years ago) I just felt in love. Hopefully I will be able to move there someday, for now I go there to spend a weekend each month or almost :) Dublin is Amazing, but the Dubliners are so lovely! If you're lucky enough to meet one of them, as it's a very multicultural city.

    Insider Tip:Try to meet a Dubliner, with their lovely and clean accent and ask him to show you the city with his eyes. Stay away from Temple bar, so expensive, and try to explore other bars like in Dame Street or George Street. I loved a place called " No name" close to George st.

    Fell in love with Dublin

    Wonderful city! Lots to do and see within the city, and there are so many day trips (i.e. to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway, or to The Giants Causeway and Belfast...) offered that start in Dublin! Night life is (as expected) spectacular and people are extremely friendly. Would go back to the city just to be back in the pubs with the amazing music!

    Insider Tip:Visit the Book of Kells and the Old Library at Trinity College! A beautiful place to see, especially if you are a book lover! Normally costs around 10 euros, but if you get there within the last hour or half hour before they close for the day, you can get in for half the price! Definitely worth the discounted admission if you don't mind having to rush a little bit.

    Great Night out. But bring plenty of cash

    Great night out. The atmosphere in town is brilliant everywhere is busy and the music is awesome. It is expensive so be prepared for that. Double spirits are expensive. Dont let it put you off though perfect for a weekend trip.

    Insider Tip:GO to the Guinness Factory.
