Destination Highlights

  • Trinity College

    Founded in 1592, Trinity College is Ireland’s top-ranked university. The college boasts famous literary alumni including Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, and Jonathan Swift, and is home to the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript believed to have been created around 800 AD.

  • Guinness Storehouse

    The Guinness just tastes better in Ireland, where St. James’s Gate Brewery is home to the country’s world-famous brew. Enjoy a tour of the brewery’s seven floors, learn about its history dating back to 1759, and, of course, enjoy a pint in the rooftop Gravity Bar.

  • The Liberties

    On the way to the Guinness Storehouse, you’ll pass through one of the Dublin’s most unique neighborhoods. Here you can visit the impressive Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, built between 1191 and 1270 AD, and wander through quaint art galleries, bookstores, antique shops, and more.



  • Forecasting Your Dublin Vacation

    Like much of northeastern Europe, Dublin has a maritime climate with cool summers, mild winters, and a lack of extreme temperatures either hot or cold. Average winter daytime temperatures linger near 50℉ and summer highs rarely rise above 70℉. While Ireland is known for its rainfall throughout the year, Dublin’s sheltered location on the east coast makes it the driest place in the country.
