Stay at one of our Holiday Inn® Dublin hotels to discover Gaelic history in the ancient texts at Trinity College and masterful paintings at the National Gallery. Take a music pub crawl through the heart of the city to hear lilting Gaelic tunes.
Guests of our hotels in Dublin visit Trinity College, Ireland’s oldest university, where tidy green lawns frame centuries-old academic buildings. A tour of the Old Library reveals the intricately illuminated 9th-century Book of Kells, one of Dublin’s greatest cultural treasures. Discover who’s who in modern Irish culture and politics in the portrait collection at the National Gallery, or trace ancient Ireland’s history in the archaeology branch of the National Museum. Both museums are free to the public. Kids love to feed the ducks and play on the swings at St. Stephen’s Green or explore the meadows of Phoenix Park. Our Dublin hotels are close to massive Croke Park stadium, where visitors join thousands of cheering fans at soccer or Gaelic hurling matches.
Our hotels in Dublin are a quick walk or bus ride from Temple Bar and Grafton Street, two central hubs for eating and drinking. Round out a hearty Irish meal of shepherd’s pie and soda bread in a traditional pub with a pint of Guinness, the capital’s signature draught. Music pub crawls through central Dublin showcase joyful Gaelic song on the traditional fiddle, pennywhistle, and bodhrán (Irish drum).
Book our Dublin hotels in June to celebrate Bloomsday, in honor of native son James Joyce’s masterpiece novel Ulysses, set in Dublin. Book in September, when the city becomes a giant stage for experimental theater in the Dublin Fringe Festival, or in February, to watch debut films at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival.
