A walk between past and present: exploring the city on foot

The best way to get to know Dublin is to explore the city on foot. The picturesque houses with their colourful flower boxes enchant visitors to the city. Probably the most impressive building in Dublin is the university – Trinity College, where many famous people have studied. Walking around the campus, you immediately feel transported in time! The library of Trinity College also houses an important Irish cultural treasure: the Book of Kells, a valuable medieval manuscript.

From Trinity College you can stroll along the shopping street Grafton Street to St. Stephen’s Green Park. On Grafton Street you will find various shops, cafés and restaurants and listen to the sounds of street music.

In contrast to the historic buildings is the city’s modern landmark: the “Spire”, a 123-metre-high column made of stainless steel, also known as the “world’s largest toothpick”.

Museum highlights in Dublin

A recommended museum for anyone interested in Ireland’s history is the Kilmainham Gaol Museum, an old prison where you can learn a lot about the country’s past, which was marked by struggles for independence.

A visit to the Guinness Storehouse is also worthwhile. On a guided tour you will learn everything about the origin of the famous drink and the process of brewing beer. The roof terrace offers a fantastic view over the city.

Tip for the evening programme: Temple Bar

As the day draws to a close, it’s time to enjoy a glass of Guinness or a whiskey in one of the countless pubs. This is best done in the pub district of Temple Bar, the core of Dublin’s nightlife. There you will certainly be able to experience one or two live music events. You can find out the real insider tips on a “pub crawl”, a pub tour that should be booked in advance.

Experience nature and discover Ireland

Your trip will not be short on recreation either, as Dublin offers numerous opportunities for excursions into nature and is not far from the sea. If you have a little more time and want to explore Ireland, you should definitely plan a visit to the impressive Cliffs of Moher and the Giant’s Causeway. If you prefer to stay in the city, a visit to St. Stephen’s Green Park will help you relax.
