By Viator, April 2014

4.5 912 Reviews | Add your review

Words and music are the lifeblood of this literary city, so here's a suggested three-day itinerary that will get you into that Dublin frame of mind. Don't worry, we've included plenty of pubs! 

Day 1: Hop On, Hop Off, and Party!

Oh to be in Dublin – where do you start? So much history to explore, so many famous sights…the easiest approach to take is leaping on a Dublin City hop-on hop-off bus tour. This is a great way to get the lay of the land – the historic buildings, the major attractions and the vibrant nightlife.

Dublin is famous for its hospitality, so get yourself a big slice of it by spending the evening at a good old Irish house party – it's the perfect introduction to Dublin. Great atmosphere, music, food, and stories. Let the good times roll! 

Day 2: Walking, Sailing, Writing, and Drinking

History, literature, photography, architecture – whatever your obsession, you could easily structure a walking path around Dublin that would feed those passions. Why not strap on your walking shoes for a Dublin City Walking Tour to get yourself started? See the main shopping streets, historic Georgian and Victorian quarters, Trinity College and Temple Bar. Spend the afternoon on a leisurely cruise down the River Liffey before brushing up on your James Joyce and heading out on a Dublin literary pub crawl – explore its literary past and exciting pub culture. Educational and recreational!  

Day 3: Moher Cliffs, More Music, More Pints

Don't miss Ireland's famously inspiring landscape. Make time to trip out to Wicklow or Cork, or scoop up the highlights of Ireland's west coast with a train and coach tour of Limerick, the wild Cliffs of Moher, the unique lunar landscape of the Burren, and picturesque Galway Bay.

Sign off on your three days in Dublin in signature Dublin fashion – with plenty of music and plenty of Guinness. A cozy night of music in a traditional Irish pub is a sure-fire way to really appreciate the warmth of the Irish spirit. Aim for Temple Bar - you could even join a musician-led tour of the best watering holes – and have a drink to Dublin.
