A city recognised for its great music, art and literature the capital of Ireland is a great group holiday to truly immerse yourself in. With literally thousands of great pubs to choose from and an atmosphere to rival that of Scottish cities, it won’t be long until you have a pint your hand, enjoying the great music on offer and are having a ‘craic’ with locals.
It is almost unthinkable to go to Dublin and not sample at least one pint of Guinness and a favourite spot to visit is the Guinness Storehouse. Here, you can learn more about this iconic drink before enjoying a complementary pint and taking in the stunning panoramic views over the city in the Guinness Gravity bar. If Irish whiskey is more your thing then take a tour around the world renowned Old Jameson Distillery.
A tour around the Kilmainham Gaol gives you an interesting, up close and personal insight into the remarkable prison which for almost 130 years housed some of the most famous political prisoners and tells the story of Ireland’s turbulent fight for independence. Another great and unique activity while you are in Dublin is for you and your group to try out some Gaelic sports with facilities to do so close to the city centre.
A trip to Dublin is not complete without a wander down the grandest avenue in the city, O’Connell Street where you can visit the new highly interactive GPO Witness History Museum and learn more about Ireland’s story inside the historic General Post Office and see the multiple monuments which line the street including the imposing Spire, the tallest structure in Dublin city centre at 120m. It is also a great central location to branch out and explore more of this amazing city with the National Leprechaun Museum, National Museum of Ireland and Chester Beatty Library all within easy walking distance.
