Dublin

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Get in touch with nature at Wicklow Mountains National Park and Irish National Stud & Gardens. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bru na Boinne and Powerscourt Gardens and House. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dublin: Kilkenny (Kilkenny Castle & St. Canice's Cathedral & Round Tower), Trim Castle (in Trim) and Glendalough Monastic Settlement (in Vale of Glendalough). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Kilmainham Gaol, take in the architecture and design of Trinity College Dublin, appreciate the history behind The Famine Sculpture, and sample the tasty concoctions at Guinness Storehouse.

For photos, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Dublin vacation planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Dublin Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 62°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
