The largest city in Ireland, Dublin is a vibrant and friendly city full of history, culture and of course, Irish pubs! Experience medieval and modern sights and stories with a hop-on hop-off bus tour taking you to 25 iconic stops around the Irish capital. The concept is simple, simply hop-off if there’s a sight you’d like to explore further and then hop back on to continue your sightseeing adventure.
A UNESCO City of Literature, some of the greatest writers including Joyce, Wilde, Shaw and Beckett have called the city home — so why not pop into the Writers Museum to learn more about the significance of literature in the city’s social and cultural development. For art, hop-off at IMMA, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, and just a short walk away is the Kilmainham Gaol. Once a prison for Ireland’s most famous political and military leaders, and now a museum giving a dramatic insight into Irish history.
A must-see is the Guinness Storehouse — the largest stout brewery in the world. Walk among the brewery buildings and tram tracks before entering through the iconic black gates to learn about Arthur Guinness, his family and how the famous stout is brewed. Another great experience is Teeling Whiskey Distillery, where you’ll learn about Dublin’s newest distillery in over 125 years.
Hop off at St Patrick’s Cathedral to see the largest cathedral in Ireland or Christ Church Cathedral, which has stood in the heart of Dublin for almost 1,000 years. Next door you’ll find the Dublinia Viking Museum, where you can learn more about Viking and medieval Dublin or see Dublin Castle, which was built on the site of a Viking settlement.
Whatever you’re into, Dublin has something for everyone!
