Weekend Breaks to Dublin
Ireland’s capital city was once home to literary giants including James Joyce, Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett. Nowadays, its history is still in evidence, but so too is an abundance of choice for anyone looking for a group holiday, whether that’s a weekend away or longer.
What to See in Dublin
A ‘must see’ attraction for any short break in Dublin is the Guinness Storehouse (’the Home of Guinness’). Try also to fit in a visit to Trinity College, where you can see the beautiful 1,200 year old Book of Kells. Still with history in mind, Christ Church Cathedral dates back to 1028AD and its medieval crypt is especially worth a visit. Museums and galleries are aplenty, including the Dublin Writers Museum and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. If you prefer to stay outdoors, a walk through Dublin never disappoints. Spend an hour or two in the historic Docklands area, stroll alongside the River Liffey (O’Connell Bridge is a great focal point) and then pick a route past dozens of wonderful buildings, statues and memorials – not to mention dozens of lovely shops and cafes.
The word ‘Dublin’ and ‘nightlife’ go hand-in-hand, as millions of visitors over recent years will testify. Stag and hen weekends in Dublin are never disappointed by the choice on offer. For dinner, you can find a varied menu centred around local ingredients at Beaufield Mews (Dublin’s oldest restaurant), while Bad Ass Café blends super food with stand-up comedy every Friday night. Dublin of course has food from around the world, with options including the 777 Mexican Restaurant and the New York style Italian restaurant, Belluci’s. When it comes to bars, we love Café En Seine and its blend of atmosphere, great choice of drinks and tasty food. When it’s time to hit the clubs the centrally-located Alchemy on Fleet Street is very stylish and areas can be reserved in advance for those on a group holiday.
Whatever the nature or size of your group holiday in Dublin, we can find you a suitable hotel. If your budget can stand it, something like the Merrion or the Four Seasons will bring you some luxury. Meanwhile, something like the Mespil or Ariel House are great value but still to a high standard. We can of course also source budget accommodation.
