Ireland’s Fair CityDublin has something for everyone and there are plenty of things to do. Marvel at the famous Dublin Castle and the Christ Church Cathedral, or visit Trinity College and discover the Book of Kells. Immerse yourself in Dublin’s history at Kilmainham Gaol and Dublinia, a museum focused on the city’s Viking and Medieval history, or enjoy modern Dublin with a rock concert at 3Arena.
Wander around Dublin’s famous shopping vicinity, Grafton Street, and take in the old Irish businesses and landmark Georgian architecture. Or, catch a major sporting event at Croke Park. No visit to the capital city would be complete without a tour of the Guinness Storehouse, followed by a pint of the ‘black stuff’. If visitors are short on time, they can sample a pint of Guinness or simply soak up the atmosphere in Temple Bar, Dublin’s vibrant cultural quarter.

The park is home to Dublin Zoo and is a great attraction for younger visitors to the capital. Alternatively, a 20-minute DART ride south east of the city enables tourists to take in beautiful seaside scenery as they arrive at Dun Laoghaire seafront and the great East Pier.
Combining a rich heritage, a thriving cultural scene, interesting historical attractions, striking architecture and a vibrant nightlife with legendary Irish hospitality, Dublin breaks are truly unforgettable. All of this can be experienced from the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dublin Airport.
