Discover a vibrant music scene, rich traditions and modern culture in the Irish capital, Dublin.
For Culture Vultures
Immerse yourself in the city’s rich history of music and theatre. Whichever corner of the city your Dublin hotel sits, you’re likely to come across traditional Irish music and dance. Head to the Temple Bar area to find pubs alive with live bands and impromptu dancing. For art lovers, the Irish Museum of Modern Art is not to be missed. While top contemporary art collections and changing exhibitions can be found at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. You can also dip into Irish history at Kilmainham Gaol, a former prison, to discover the place that held many of Ireland’s political prisoners during the Country’s path to independence.

Alternatively, get to grips with Dublin’s rich literary heritage and learn about the illustrious careers of literary greats of the past 300 years at the Dublin Writers Museum.
The Drinks of Dublin
Dublin is home to one of the most famous breweries in the world, the Guinness Storehouse. Visit the Storehouse at its original site, to see how Guinness is made, learn about the drink’s rise to fame and sip a pint of the signature dark stout while you gaze out at 360° views Dublin’s skyline from the top floor. If Guinness isn’t your tipple, you can try another Irish favourite, Jameson’s whiskey during a visit to the Old Jameson Distillery in the heart of Dublin. You’ll even get a tutored whiskey tasting with your tour.
If your Dublin hotel is near Phoenix Park, it’s worth taking a stroll around the area known as ‘Dublin’s playground’. You can explore the park’s forested areas occupied by wild deer, wander up to Wellington Monument or see your favourite animals at Dublin Zoo within the park grounds. This 70-acre park and zoo is home to giraffes and zebras in the African Savanna, Asian elephants in Kaziranga Forest, and you can observe gorillas in their natural environment at Gorilla Rainforest.
