About Dublin

Since the 90s, Dublin saw many improvements that helped increased the number of visitors per year. Although Dublin does not get the same amount of visitors compared to other European cities such as Paris and London, the city is still worth visiting. Even budget travelers can enjoy many interesting places out there.

Travelers can enjoy several landmarks and attractions in Dublin without spending anything. If you are the adventurous type or backpacking, you can explore Ireland’s capital on foot. The National Museum of Ireland has an extensive collection of various pieces. For instance, the museum has an interesting collection of archaeological artifacts in its Kildare wing. It also has a large collection of decorative arts and history, most notably, the Collin Barracks artifact. In addition, the museum also houses various species of insects as well as sculpted mythological figures; together, they form the museum of natural history inside the National Museum of Ireland.

Apart from museums, Dublin also has several galleries worth exploring. The Dublin City Gallery – The Hugh Lane houses more than 2,000 modern and contemporary art pieces including works of Monet and Manet. Meanwhile, the National Gallery of Ireland also has more than 10,000 art pieces such as paintings, sculptures, watercolors, prints and drawings. It includes works by Picasso, Caravaggio, Van Gogh and Vermeer.

Dublin’s Major Festivals

St. Patrick’s Day, which is celebrated every 17th of March, is the most popular festival not only in Dublin but also in the whole of Ireland. Some countries such as US have their own celebration too. Most people celebrate this day by drinking. Various street performances also happen simultaneously.

Another notable celebration is the Dublin Writer’s Festival. During the previous years, the weeklong festival was celebrated in May or June. Writers all over the world gather for a series of activities, which includes readings, public debates and discussions.

Urban and Outdoor Activities

Dublin is not only for visits to historical attractions and exploration of its art and culture. There are also outdoor activities visitors can enjoy. As one of the most bike-friendly cities, Dublin promotes exploring the city by bike. Apart from a biking trip within the city, visitors can also cycle down the Ticknock Mountain Bike Trail. The trail is an 8 km loop winding through the Dublin Mountains with lots of rocks and berms along the trail.

Within Grand Canal Dock is a cable wakeboarding park called the Wakedock. Those who want to experience a different kind of thrill can try riding the wakeboard kicker and slider.

Where to Drink and Dine

If you are looking for a good place to drink, Kehoe’s and Porterhouse offer mugs full of delicious Irish beer. On the other hand, if you want to dine, try Peploe’s and Hugo’s. These restaurants serve Western and International cuisine respectively. If you feel like eating seafood dishes, go to Aqua’s near the harbor. Dunne & Crescenzi, meanwhile, offers the best Italian menu in town. For dessert, try Cake Café’s pastries and cakes. End your dining experience with a cup of hot espresso from Bald Barista by Buss Fendall.
