Ireland has always been a destination that everyone wants to visit, thanks to its friendly people, great pubs and happy music!
I hope you enjoy reading this post and that it helps you plan a wonderful time in Dublin!

♥ How to get there?
I personally liked using Ryanair while I was living in Glasgow, Scotland because they have early direct flights and in just 55 minutes you can be enjoying a cold pint in Dublin! You should also visit Glasgow, which is absolutely gorgeous. Stay tuned as we will have lots of posts coming up in the next weeks about the best things to check out in Scotland!
♥ Things to do once you arrive in Dublin!
The Airport is approximately 30 minutes away from the city center. The best way to get to the hotel zone is to take the Aircoach (7 euros) or Airlink 747 (6 euros) and ask the driver to drop you off at Trinity college stop (College Green Street). If you stay at the Fleet Street hotel you will easily find them, as they are located at the beginning of Temple Bar, opposite TESCO supermarket and at the ground floor of the hotel you will find the restaurant TGI Fridays. Going by bus is the best option as a taxi would cost approximately €30. A nice extra €20 for your Dublin enjoyment!
♥ Where to stay?
I love this hotel, and to anyone that asks me I will always recommend it. It is not overly pricey, and also the location is perfect, you can literally be steps away from all the action happening at night!
♥ What to do?
Here are my top 3 recommendations! As always I recommend staying 3 nights, to get the most of the place you are visiting while allowing yourself time to visit more places, especially in Europe where there are just such amazing places to enjoy!
- I know it sounds very touristy but I really enjoy the Hop on – Hop off buses, they really do take you to the places that you MUST see, and taking it in Dublin is a great plan. Another pro that I like is that it is not expensive, and it can be used as a “taxi” that takes you as close as you can to the location you are looking to visit and then you can walk the rest. You can’t miss the National Museum of Archaeology, Trinity College, or St. Patrick’s Cathedral and of course the Guinness Storehouse. I am sure you will have a blast at the best price and worry-free!
- Take the jail tour at Dublin’s Kilmainham Gaol! It is very interesting to see how the prisoners lived and get to know a little more about Irish history!
- Obviously, food can’t be forgotten. To make this post even more complete and your experience in Dublin the best one, don’t miss out on our post with the best food and restaurant recommendations CLICK HERE to read it. I can’t believe that I forgot to include this in my last post about food but you can’t miss going to Murphy’s and trying one of their ice creams with gin from their local distillery!
Of course don’t forget to walk at night through the Temple Bar area to experience the true Irish party culture, which includes many awesome drinks, and the friendliest people singing along to live music!
